Nothing to See Here…

aceI’ve got nothing.  Seriously.  I’ve been swamped with life outside of aviation.  You know, family, kids, work, bills, mowing the lawn, fixing stuff around the house, birthday parties, etc.  I haven’t touched the Baby Ace in weeks.  Shameful, I know.

I did manage to sell a tailwheel.  That will help to put a couple bucks back in the kitty for the Baby Ace.  Which is good, because I’m wanting more and more to replace the old mild steel exhaust.  That’s a full AMU* I hadn’t planned for.  But I want a nice exhaust system under the cowl.  Save a few pounds on the nose of an already tipsy airframe.

New Old Stock Scott 3200 for sale. $2000. :)I’m also “in the process” of selling of a bunch of R/C stuff I’m not using.  All of that will go on RCGroups and RCUniverse.  Don’t expect to hear much about it here, but the funds raised are going into my Baby Ace project.

This week I started on an R/C glider project to fly with my kids.  It’s a Great Planes Spirit ARF, but I think I would have been better off with a kit.  The QC is lacking on these GP ARF’s.  This is the third one I’ve had issues with.  Hangar 9 and SIG are far and away better ARF’s.  No comparison.

If you look at some of the older posts, you’ll see that I’m pretty active on Instagram.  I like it.  It’s easy, and there are lots of pictures for visually inspired people like me.  Not too many words.  If you’re on Instagram, please follow me.  If you’re an aviation person, I’ll gladly follow you back.  Especially if you post pictures of taildraggers!!!
