    Lack of time is why I got into consulting :beer2:

    Back when I picked up the Pin and started riding again I fell off the earth of RC planes ... foamies in particular. Now that our grandson is 9 he is about ready to use a buddy/trainer transmitter. Foamies aren't quite the expense that bikes are (sarcasm) but I've drilled a $125 kit into the ground on first flight so that can be painful to go home with. That's a good reason to stick with home made foamies. Drill 'em and harvest the parts for your next disaster.

    The first two pix below are semi-retired birds and the bottom pic are two home made modified P-51's that my grandson will hopefully fly in a couple weeks. Gotta go on Craigslist or eBay to drop cash on a second transmitter. I already bought new Li-Po's to power those bad boys!

    Balsa Fokker DR1 and a"Tub" a friend made. Flying the Fokker tri-plane is like trying to control a dragonfly on LSD. I may never take that one off the wall again.

    I remember one time I had left for a ride and forgot the garage door remote, when I got back I had to get off the bike and open the door. :shock:
    Now it's mounted on the bike!

    Can't say I'm content, not at all, but am grateful I can move forward because of the capitalist system when used properly and with discipline enables me to be able again breathe. That makes me happy. Forward is the way to go...

    I already have a shed. Half is for yard stuff and the other half is a man shed.

    First world issues. Amazon one day shipping normally but was all July 7th with no options for faster shipping on the holiday weekend.

    Yeah Bezos needs to steal Musk's landing technology so he can drop packages from Blue Origins and they'll land right on your porch...

    They are working on drones.

    You read about the two delivery contractors that went out of business because of Amazon crazy demands on drivers?

    Nothing will change with their requirements and the people who order through Amazon could care less about the drivers

    Search online. Drivers are doing impossible number of deliveries per day. Peeing and crapping in the truck because they can't stop for anything. Amazon has full control over what the 2000 contracted delivery companies do. Two companies closed up because they were tired of it. Worse working conditions than UPS and FedEx.

    My Canada first world problem is that companies in the US will ship just about whatever you want for free to a city in the US. Shipping to me only 10 miles away starts at about $50 for a padded envelope.
