A Good Weekend in Warsaw

To this great Remotely Piloted combination, simply add a pound of Beluga caviar and some water crackers, a carton of fresh American Marlboros, East African coffee and plenty of Euros and U.S. Dollars, and you've got the makings of a decent weekend away from the malignant Red Menace still festering in Washington, D.C.
     Buzz one of the many beautiful women of Poland in a park and strike up a conversation on Geopolitics. Talk to the children about the American air superiority that freed their oppressed land from the fascists and then, over time, the communists--who have now weaseled their way into the American Democrat Party. The old fight against Evil still wages on....
     I'm sure they'll be able to relate with a proper historical perspective.
The combo:
ParkZone Ultra Micro P-51 with Thunder Power 160mah 25C battery, and the workhorse Spektrum DX6i transmitter.

Redfish Fly, Too

Look at this bronze muscled beast of American Liberty!

Now, what does a redfish have to do with Remote Control flying?
If you look closely (click on the image), you can see the tiny remote control unit this fine fish has tucked up lovingly underneath his pectoral (chest) fin. Yes, this redfish flies R/C, too!
While this ten pound specimen was tailing over seagrass digging up shrimp and crabs with his school mates, creating a huge muddy streak on the surface of the water, there were seagulls not far away, looking to join in on the shrimp fest. I posit that this redfish, here, was remotely piloting one of the birds--his "Eyes in the Sky", if you will, flying above looking out for troublesome dolphin and sharks, the adult redfish's most prolific predators.
Who said redfish weren't up to speed in the so-called New Age?
***This noble Red-backed, White-bellied and Blue-tip-tailed American beauty was revived and released to swim and fly again!

Saint Nick Blazes the Fascists

     He flies a heavily armed Parkzone P-51, Saint Nicholas the giver of gifts. A fully paid for and licensed Mustang, yet certain federal officials wished to deny his annual jaunt of joy, and confiscate his gifts and his favorite mode of transportation "for the disenfranchised you oppressed in past generations"--which is their cowardly, politically correct (corrupt) way of saying, "for our envious and petty selves".
     It happened last year, too, when the sanctioned thieves approached him on the tarmac prior to take off with the bright, shiny wrapped booty for the children loaded up on his Mustang of Freedom. They hit him with phony new taxes and processing charges for the new bureaucracies that were created simply to be funded thusly. He wrote a big personal check and took off for his delivery.
     But what they had taken from him before they released him that Eve was abominable: they confiscated the homemade Divinity candy and Chocolate Chip cookies he was going to give to the children of the world. "You cannot give this to kids," they said, "It's bad for them and the First Lady won't have any of it on her watch."
     It had been ugly. But Santa kept heart. "Never again," he swore to himself. And he, and his Elves Works engineers and attorneys, were ready for them this year.
     This Christmas Eve skies over the Pole were bright and clear with a big moon and Santa noticed a black MiG-15 (NATO code name, "faggot") behind him, out of the corner of his eye. He turned into the jet slightly and got a better look at it, the moonlight glinting off its gloss blackness. There was what looked to be a funky, altered Pepsi (tm) swirly logo on its fuselage and on alternate wing surfaces. Hmm... then the MiG turned into him and he saw white blazes of fire emmenating from its nose mounted 20 and 37 mm. cannon. He, Santa, on his way to drop off a load of gifts over Darfur, was under fire..... Everything happened quickly from this point on.....
     But it was not Santa's first time to be attacked by the fascists:
     On December 24th, 1940, Santa was flying over western France to deliver a load of toys for the occupied French children when he, flying in his highly modified Spitfire Mk V with 20 mm. cannon, was jumped by a brace of Luftwaffe Bf 109s. They hadn't seen his wingman, Donner, who was lurking up higher above and behind Santa, just for a situation like this. Donner swept down behind the Messerschmitts and, kicking his rudder gently left and right while firing his cannon, blazed both German tormenters. They bailed out and parachuted into France. Later, Santa heard that an angry, oppressed farmer with a hoe and shotgun met them down on his French field when they hit the ground.....
     But tonight, Christmas Eve Two Thousand and Ten, the fascist was in a fast jet.....

My Trainer for Fighter Pilots

The Ember 2 at this price, $75,  is so tempting I got another one, as fighter pilots can run on the impulsive side. Do you wish to join the fight against world fascism? Get an Ember and wait for calm days and, at the very best--a calm evening when the enemy's getting drowzy and his defenses are down. Hit him hard with he Ember 2 at this point!
This is a great trainer. Calm conditions are a must, but even here on the coast where wind rules there are many very calm evenings for flying.
Take no Prisoners!

Look at the tiny motors!  Note: operational Micro Machine Guns (tm) are extra.
You can "click" the image and magnify it to see what the Elves have done!
