Welcome (back?) to the hobby, and TRF Bill. There are a lot of us old f**rts here, and a wide variety of ages, which is great. While I mostly prefer builder's kits, I still occasionally build an E2X when I just need to fly something! Estes has been getting better ever since the end of the Barry days, and hope they continue to bring us new complex kits as well as stuff to bring kids into the hobby, *and* stay profitable for the long haul. -Paul (Partial to 42, but 73 is pretty cool).
