Thumbs up Post up your RC presents!

My darling wife bought me a plane back in Nov. and hid it from me. She wrapped it up so the picture of the plane couldn't be seen she just said I would love to have it.
She said she was watching what I was looking at online, and decided this was the one to get she likes it also.

Well the gifts are all opened, and I couldn't believe she got me a Bucker Jungmann to add to the fleet Wing span is 55" fuselage is 48".
I am looking forward to getting this one assembled, and flying should look sweet in the air.

So what did you get RC related post em up guys and girls!

A Merry Christmas to you all!

I got a Reactor Bipe, fully set up, ready for receiver and battery

http://www.towerhobbies.com/products.../gpma1580.html

It belonged to a friend of mine, that is a good pilot, and has never even had a bad landing. I don't even think of it as used, just tested. It has the Rimfire motor, Vox prop, 380 max servos, and 40 amp ESC.
It is going to be great fun this summer.

I didn't get any airplanes, but did get a Dremel Workstation and the flexible cable accessory. I've already used it for a pair of snow skis I built for my HZ Super Cub this morning. Too bad the snow melted...

Bought myself a 55" MX2 from HK. I really like the way my Sbach 342 flies but it is just to darn small.

DC,

Looks great ! I've seen this one at our field.

I have two "old school" HK Yak 54 ARF's with Fiberglass fuses that I won in a fundraisiing flyi n this past summer. Have the parts to build one of them . No manual though. The other I might donate to the next fundraiser.

Meanwhile, I was thinking about getting the 1400mm FMS BF109

Have a good one !

Didn't get any RC stuff since what I do is so specific the wife doesn't even try! LOL

What she did do though was tell me to get what ever motor I need for the Shoestring project!

She knows I would anyway but it's kind of cool she gives it the AOK.

She also said we need to trade in my truck for a new one!!!!!

Wait what!!!!!
