Flew my P4 yesterday for an early morning video flight, nothing particularly unique or challenging.  Planning to test, tweak or repair my whole fleet in the next few weeks (I've just retired) with the object of selling all the helicopters and most of the multi's.  I want to raise cash for a spare photo-ship.  So far, the business has been slow, but I've had a few jobs and think that more will be coming now that I have time to push it.

I've still got all of my birds, but I have just been way to busy at work ..

Plus its a little  :freeze: down here under the globe right now ..

Biggest problem is that most of my batteries are now old / puffy or simply don't hold enough charge for more than a couple minutes of basic flight ..

Another problem for me is that I bought a 2 stroke 4x4 Monster Truck .. This has been getting the most attention over the past months ..

I will get back in the air once things settle down at work and the daylight gets a bit longer and temps get a bit higher ..   :t2030:

Thanks AK!  I'm planning on making cold calls to construction sites, tower facilities, including town water towers and to other real estate agents besides the ones I've already visited.  I'm also going to be practicing my indoor flying, as I've seen some good business promotional videos that require that, and I haven't done as much indoor flying as I need to to.  Stay tuned.  BTW, I did post a short video showcasing our little town over in the Video section.

We have been busy with medical stuff for me ...getting ready for the back surgury  , but in the late we have both caught the r c boat bug .
Built a couple of them . One is an air boat ( our design ) and the other is a barge style or tug we designed .
I am going to post the airboat in the boat section .
As far as flying we havn't been able to get out much . With my condition I cant walk or stand for very long , so
at least with boats I can sit down and run them . I ran them years ago and always wanted to get back into them
 soooo      now we have 2 and getting ready to get a third one.

watch for the post in boats today.

I know I know .....another video

Yeah I hope you start feeling better too. Boats seem like fun - unless of course they sink  :0042v1:

I've been tied up with things around the house and repairing an older truck I bought when I was little. Nothing great, just an 94 ranger splash 4x4. But it was the first brand new vehicle I ever bought, so it has sentimental value.

I'll get back top flying pretty soon though
