Hi its Jack (the other guy in the photo)

I am very thankful that you sent those two bats and that Banana. Me and Greg will use them well.

Personally I think you are a wonderful member of this forum for all you have done for Greg

Thanks

For everyone else

A while back this young man was trying to get an e-bay cox .15 and not having much luck

In my area I have tried and tried to find any young person interested in model airplanes, building, playing with small engines etc..... no luck

As I have way too many projects, some of my early acquisition kits and Bernie sourced cox .049s were in danger of never ever being used

I decided to jump start this young man with a couple of model kits, a few new cox engines, some small servos and a used baby bee I disassembled and included a "rebuild" kit, a Roger Harris handle, propellers, some Dacron line, and other odds and ends

To insure they arrived from Texas to Australia, I double packaged the two shipments fairly heavy and the USPS took just about a month to get the stuff to Greg and (news to me) Jack

Sounds like it all arrived safely and hopefully the young men will learn a lot by trying to get working aircraft to fly and engine to make smoke and noise..... Modeling by young folks promotes being curious, experimental, and is fun------- life lessons that will follow them for ever

Pay it forward

PS: Greg and Jack..... as you fuss with that stuff, find the links to the left side of this page for the exploded view of the baby Bee .049. As you assemble that engine there is a very small O ring gasket between the back-plate and fuel tank Venturi

Mostly pleas have fun, get adult help when needed, ask questions here and any other forum you follow

OUTSTANDING!! Fred, you are one of a kind a very fine human being! I had thoughts about doing something. You on the other hand actually packed up some goodies and sent them off to be used by the youngster(s) showing intrest in our hobby. Sir I salute you on your efforts to pass on the enthusiasm, education, and excitement our Hobby.
Thank you!

Thanks for the comment fred the banana and bats are great. I could never have imagined the generousity that you have. Me and Greg will use the bats for streamer dogfights and the Banana to get out skills up.

Thanks
