Anyone that flies toy airplanes passes that test right up front, before even
buying or building anything, Keith.
But, misery loves company, so we're glad you're "one of us".
P.S. Even if you're not a baby boomer.
I would postulate that anything that can kill or maim you is not a toy
and should NEVER be taken lightly. I've got the scars running the
length of my hand from a rock maple prop ( MA 10-6 beautifully
balanced) to prove my point.
I suppose we've got jackets? I really need to knuckle under and
join the local chapter here in Cut Bank. One member is restoring an
old link trainer.
I consider myself gen WHY not gen X. Why they gotta keep spending
stupid. Why, why, why WHY! ;^) Yeah I was/am the kid that asked the
uncomfortable questions. Like "Why are you letting politics get in the
way of solving the problem".
I'll keep looking even if I don't know where to look next. The Berkely
kits was the AF-2S which was half of the pair the Navy flew the other
was the AF-2W and carried the BAR (Big Assed Radar) on the belly. It
was a Hunter/Killer ASW team.
