I don't think that is the recommended usage of any product from Duluth Trading Co., let alone undershorts.

STAND BY!

If you read this obituary then you'll know that I screwed up the dull coat: Jeffrey Smith (USN) of Aurora, Illinois (home of Wayne and Garth) hanged himself today with Duluth Trading Company boxer-briefs. He's survived by an extremely pi$$ed-off wife, (2) stupid cats, and (1) yappity mutt.

TBC


Jeff-

Remember my admonition about the underwear! Don't do it! I still have the nice, clean rope we purchased for that very reason during your last 'crisis'.

I'll have the package on 'standby'.

Thanks, but I won’t need the rope or the skivvies to end myself because the dull coat is EPIC!

Photos soon.

Beautiful work!
Looks like the Vixen did a good job of sanding down those ridges.
Have you chosen what motor you're going to use on the maiden?
How big is your field?

Thanks! I'll pass that along to "The Vixen".

The instructions call for an Aerotech F50W-6 for an 800 foot flight or an Aerotech G53W-7 for a 900 foot flight. That reminds me, I should check the CG again with the "laundry" in the model.

Jeffy, just a heads up.
I couldn't find a G53W motor, but there is a G53FJ (Fast Jack). It's a reloadable.
Also couldn't find a F50W but there is an F50T (Blue Thunder).
I assume they are typos on BA's part.

Thanks! Also, and FYI, the instructions that I still had from the Estes Pershing Maxi kit were an absolute necessity for decal placement--especially the number "31" decals.
