Well I'm in the windy city working at the hobby/toy fair and it's not all about kites for this one but we do have a booth for the kites and people are really being
open about the whole thing for sure.Posted Image The other stuff is hush hush but the kites I can talk about and I think we are going to have some new members of the
Family soon cause they keep watching the videos and there jaws drop for sure....Posted Image It's funny we have been doing this a long time but it really is a totally
unseen product cause people still don't know about it..... So it's late and yes I do like toys, nooooooooo Ben you do not need the 1/10 scale jet airplane, funny
for some reason I think this trip is going to cost me some bucks no matter what I do.....Posted Image I'll post some photos tomorrow..... BenPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Parks are probably of limits to that size. I guess you would have to take it to Montgomery Field to fly it.

Look for the AR.Drone by Parrot. Not sure if they are there or not but, Ben, you need one of these bad boys.

It is great to see the trainer back in action.

I am sure the Marines would like you to come over to Miramar with the tank.

Have a nice trip home.

Talking about RC stuff.

What I did see at a Festival was an RC, I think it was a little Clown type dude. Flying a Dualie. It was REAL cool.

You'll note in the first picture that it has a Rum Buddies palm tree on it, thus, I am pretty sure this one is Bazzers!

I get a tank ...my very own Panzer! Great for parking.
Or do I get a tank with scuba diver air filter and a little castle.
As Long as there are palm trees ...I'm good

You know. I spent most of my life in Mission Bay/Beach in San Diego. (OB a lot also) And not once do I remember seeing a rev flying. I would have noticed, I'm sure.


I am headed back there for a few days in a week, so I sure hope you're gunna be there so I can see yer smilin' face.

I don't think they fly very often down on the beaches either.
They usually fly in various parks or down at Embarcadero near Seaport Village.
The San Diego Kite Club usually flies at Mission Bay park, right south of the Hilton on the second Saturday of each month.
The alternate meeting place is Mariner's Point.
The Mission Bay Park Meeting might fit within your plans.
