Yeah, I’m just throwin’ a little bit of gonzo talk back at ya. You know, the devil went down to Georgia, but he went back a whipped pup! Just making sure your ‘whack the gas’ blood was still flowing.

..and I’ll jump off the thread highjack kick, too.

neat thread, been ages since I've been on TORF, good to be back .

working right now on restoring my original USR Mongrel, and may have to build a clone of the original to go with.

Nice job posting the info.

( love the old / early HPR stuff - could almost be mid-power now, good times ).

Thanks for the welcome back s... been a long strange trip.. life isues, etc etc - mygrandkids are 7 and 10 and want to fly some, so dug stuff back out and....
Have kept lurking on the Fb pages but not building or flying much ( did fly a few at Nypower 2018 ).
STILL have a huge interest in early days of HPR, so this thread certainly caught my eye when I popped back in.
Also good to see that you got info from both Chris and Curt, two of the early pioneers, who I imagine have a wealth of info (and stories ).

will be watching.

Al

ps: thought i had a pic scanned of the USR Mongrel, but not finding it here - so just because here's a photo of my USR Hi Test 2650 on 3xF100
