John E, my neighbor had a good story to tell me about a Firebird XL that they got for their son on his birthday. To make the nice story very short: After finally getting the thing in the air, he did some gentle turns and then the thing just locked up… full throttle, straight flight. And off it went! John told me, “Of course it was funny later. But while it was flying away, all I was thinking was, ‘There goes $150 dollars.'” The plane flew off into the wild and was never heard from again. They found the right spirit and it gives them a good laugh now.I took John out to Great Meadows. We had a lovely time killing the afternoon.
I got a 2″ PVC pipe for my forced-air battery cooler. That’s more like it.
