Go ahead and bump me for someone who has the weather to enjoy it for a bit. I am giving up my status as "next" but only temporarily.

I want you to know all the members of this adventure, that I would like to participate, and take a picture with the engine, sign your notebook and be part of that beautiful story, of course I would love ..... but I will not take risks, much less take risks to the engine, I fear that the customs of our country retain it and it would be a disaster.
I will spiritually accompany that beautiful story. It's all I can make friends !.

So, what did I say wrong? I hope the big "reddie" was a mistake. Otherwise, I've got no idea. Sad

Fumbly fingers I suppose, no reason for anyone to be offended.

I sent a couple of greenies your way to offset the red Thumbs Up

I added a greenie too Rod, but mostly for your text to which I agree.

I argued against the selection of a .010 Tee Dee as the Traveling Engine when first proposed because of it fragility, but was heavily out-voted.  Turns out with good cause as the little critter has held up rather well, so far.  

I have experience with them running two back in Florida in the late nineties. As I recall, I may have damaged the cylinder on one while attempting to remove it with the supplied wrench.  I never put one on a model though.

But now I have this idea.  Wouldn't it be fun to attach it to the nose of one of my larger models, tether it securely by the tail and light her off while taking pictures .... Smile  Maybe I could be tail-end-Charlie on the list when all you pro's have had a chance at it?

Bob

Edit add: I had several .010 Tee Dee's. I sold them all on ebay except one. I saved all my ad pictures, this is one of them. So which one of you guys bought my engine late nineties early 2000's............ I want it back. It has a little birth mark lower left..... Smile

My new .010 platform is finished and flying on the Texas coast. I should be ready for the traveling engine when it meanders this way. This Site Rocks!

Sorta lucked out as most of the Barriers had been removed and close-up inspection of the Aircraft was allowed. the SR-71 was difficult to get due to low light conditions, but a few pictures did turn out.

She is still setting on my desktop, along with TEII. Waiting for a adventurous member to ask for them.  Happy Dad was going to take WSTE, but never sent me a mailing address.
pkrankow Is officially next in line, if Ohio’s spring has melted all their snow!

TEII the TD 049, going out for the 2nd time. I was the first to respond, Jason sent it to me, and nobody has expressed any interest, as far as I know.
At one point I was going to get the New Medallion .15 and do a photo op of all three together.

I will admit:
I AM A ENGINE HOARDER,  not intentionally keeping these Special Engines to myself, but if anyone wants the WSTE or TEII, let me know and co ordinate with Jason W or Jacob to update the list. As to where it is going and they’ll be on the way!  Popcorn

PS: Send me a PM with your Mailing Address of course.

Well, I'm ready for it anytime, but there is a set list of participants. So maybe Phil will check in so we can follow the plan.

I should also be ready when the time arrives. Planning to mount the WSTE to a firewall and fly and video it at our local club field on the Texas coast. Should be fun!
