why not put it on display at the local hobby shop with a flyer about the
hobby , i have down loaded flyers from the web site and I'm putting them
on windshields when i go to the library .
I'm also planning on running a small add in the local quick quarter with
the URL for the web site in it.;.
also i think if the R/c TV show does a story on the article that the
hobby will triple in size in short order..
i have had to strip my tank back down to the basic hull and reposition
everything to solve some problems i had , which i dread having to do so i
put it off ,but I'm almost ready to try and get it rolling again to see
if i fixed the problem..
frank gave some good advise a long time ago ,just build your propulsion
unit on a test platform till you get all your bugs worked out.
of course i didn't do that and lived to regret it .
