Instead of some tools from Harbor Freight that I already have three of, or a button down corduroy necktie, or (heaven forbid) a pair of tickets to American Idol On Tour, I actually got something great for my birthday this year:

What I got for my birthday! DSCN1439_zpsd1e4de2d

and

What I got for my birthday! DSCN1446_zps7edb831d

One of the earliest Cox RTF's and one of the last Cox RTF's, 50 years apart.

Hooah!

Mark, My Wife (without asking first...) got me this for my Birthday when we were dating, about 7 years ago. She still asks me why I've never flown it. I suppose that would make me an ungrateful bastard...  silent

So we missed your Bday and didn't even say anything. Well I guess a Hyper Viper is the next best thing. Sorry about that. Happy Birthday.
Rusty

P.S. I love the Hyper Viper. I've had a profile of it drawn up for a year or so, waiting for me to build it. I think maybe a Tee Dee .09 size.

Yep, it's still 2 weeks out. But I got these early so the wife didn't get me the American Idol on Tour tickets or something. When I buy the birthday presents for me, there's never any disappointment or frustration...  Laughing

Just say what I would in that situation, "I would fly it, but I want it, as our love, to remain unbroken and whole."

The Hyper Viper will be for flying, once I'm more accomplished at aerobatics. I've read that the weak point in the Hyper Viper is the product engine, so I'm gonna swap in a new KB backplate and a TD piston/cylinder.  The TD-4 is a survivor, and since it's lasted 60 years, I'll let it live a nice retirement on the shelf.  But....

I did look, but since the year came first I thought maybe the 4 and 3 were backasswards too, like March 4th. I should've compared it with mine. So, still crappy detective but no breach of Birthday Etiquette here, good!

Nice Bday gifts,

I have only seen one hyper viper fly and indeed it needed a bit more power. It felt a little on the heavy side, your mods should help things along.

The TD-4 is begging for one more flight. Even if you just fly it level and land. How many folks can claim they flew one? Where is it going to go when you pass on (heaven forbid)

Carpe Diem Mark! Just food for thought.

Happy early birthday!!!!

That beautiful plane begs for a Tee Dee .049. For some reason I was thinking that's what it came equipped with. That Surestart could be converted to Killer Bee specs easily enough though.
