Ray, ask for the one leg self propelled scooter that is supplied for foot surgeries, brakes which help in getting around much easier than crutches, wheelchairs, and other modes of transportation.

Hang in there Ray!  Tore some tendons in my ankle in High School,  "You know, shortly after Columbus found this continent" and it took quite a while for them to heal, so take it easy and don't rush it or you'll injure them again!

Sorry guys, did not get to this on Sunday like I wanted to, I blew the tendons out of my left foot and I will be having surgery this Friday, but on the bright side I will be off from work for a few weeks and then I can see if I can do this in one day.

Cheers, Ray K.  Wink

My wife thinks I'm nuts, she says I work on to many projects at once but I tell her it's the only thing keeping my brain working.  Roll Eyes

Cheers, Ray K, I will post pics as soon as I can even a flight video I hope.

On the original I had 3 red plastic sleek streak wheels and the plastic prop holders, I have the plastic prop holders but not the red wheels so I will have to improvise.

Cheers, Ray K.

In 1969 I was 8 years old when I designed and built my first successful rubber powered helicopter. Today I was doodling at my desk and low and behold I had drew a sketch of the first helicopter I had built in 1969 and the drawing was amazingly accurate. When I had built it in 1969 it took 3 hours to build from beginning to end. So this Sunday I am going to see if I can duplicate it and fly it on the same day. I will post the drawing I made today so you will be able to see what it looks like after I get home from work.

Cheers, Ray K.
