Damn, Sonny. If I set that thing up outside my house, aircraft would circle in a holding pattern waiting to land. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Heck, at $48, it would only take me 3 months to save up for the parts.

See you next weekend, Sonny! MA group shoot, here we come. Should be fun but I think it will be a bit hectic myself. Too much, too fast in my opinion. We'll see.

Good day sir!

Mike
