Sweet chopper there, JD. I got mine at China Freight. It's currently undergoing some high-performance modifications.

I'd probably drive out there in my truck because I see no reason to ride across Kansas.

I'm interested. I know the area a little and have been wanting to go there and do some riding. Let me do some more studying. But probably will join in.

OK I agree on not liking the large groups and agree on having someone that know the area when I don't. ( Im awful agreeable today).

Why don't we fix this and get our own group together and hit this area before or after this rally?

Bigger battery? Loosing some weight? Tell me more.

Taking the lights off to reduce weight and increase battery life. Mine only flies for about eight minutes then has to charge for 90.

I'm amazed how well they can "take a lickin' and keep on tickin'."

If there are enough of us maybe we need to have a "rodeo." Any excuse to sit around and drink beer right?

Yeah, but the lights are sooo cool. Especially when I have it stealth up on my wife in the semi-darkness. Course she doesn't see the humor of it as much as I do.

My kids best friend got rid of the plastics and the lights to lighten it. He has a "Pen Camera" aboard. It doesn't send back real time video but it has some really perverted possibilities. I wonder if I could fly into my upstairs neighbors place while she has her deck door opened? Hmmmmm

Just make sure you have a way for it to self-destruct in case it's intercepted by the enemy (husband). You wouldn't want that technology passing into the wrong hands.

All right, now I'm pissed. All the HDMI inputs on my TV are fried thanks to this morning's electrical storm. I have an $800 paper weight. Apparently they are very sensitive to electrical surges, especially on Vizio TVs. Take note if you've got one.

I've got a Vizio but all of my electronics have a surge protector plug strip ahead of them. We had ALL of our electronics and all of our appliances get zapped when we lived on Holiday Island. Ended up being a $2K mistake. I had a whole house surge protector installed for about $600.
