Subject: Re: Modified Bug Plans - Any One Keen?
Hi squid, I have been watching with interest over the last 2 years, the development of the Bug (bought a plan from RCM etc.) on this forum, but never got round to making one. The idea of redesigning / redeveloping an improved version in light of smaller, lighter (2.4ghz) rc equipment and side arm / discus launching is really appealing. Please count me in on any new plans you may be producing. Please forgive the ramblings, this is my first input to this forum. --- In BugHLG@yahoogroups.com, "Squid" <littlefr2003@...> wrote: > > Hi every body out there!
