    Wow. How cool was that to be battling for stage time with Rush back in the day. Concert was excellent, per usual.

    Happy 60th Mike...are you still jammin?

    Seems to me they are charging way too much just for the wheel itself and then have to spend another $60 to get the paddle shifter, mine as well get the T500 instead of having to spend extra with the Logitech.

    Yea, knowing what Logitech has planned, I'd say that confirmed my choice to get the Thrustmaster stuff. Logitech didn't upgrade it's internals so that's a big no no.

    Is it better to order through Amazon or Thrustmaster's site?

    Wow, just looked at Logitech's website to find an enormous price tag for the G29 wheel and shifter set. $399 and $59. At $458, I have to admit I'm disappointed. I got excited to see the new G29 coming out, and expected to purchase one to continue my online racing. But the sticker shock has me baffled. That's pretty close to T-300 money. Well, here's hoping the Logitech price is suggested retail, and other vendors like Amazon price it more affordable. :(:confused::(

    Would you still call it awesome if you knew his plane was pink and purple!! We do know @Die_Birdy_Die will absolutely love it though,lol.

    Seeing as it's his birthday, and a slow Friday, I'll post a few pics.

    Here's Mike in his usual position, while I installed a set of floats for him.

    His pink and purple Spidy man flyer.

    He finally saw the light and recovered the plane in the back of my shop. BTW, he is slightly younger than 60 here!

    And here I pictured a slightly bald man with snow white hair over his ears, long white beard, a walker with tennis balls on the feet, and his laminated AARP card hanging from a long string around his neck. :lol:

    In all seriousness, it's always fun to put a face to the voice. What a good lookin' dude, right?

    Really disappointed in the G29. I'll stick to my G27 til it dies, and may invest in a T500 later on when I get a PS4, we'll see. Selling the shifter separate is a stupid idea too. :(

    To get a promo code, go to their site and sign up as a customer. Within a few minutes they send you a welcome package with today's promo code.
    They had this on their daily deals couple weeks ago for only $199.00.

    I remember how friggn hot it was that day. The next day was even more interesting when the first float flight took place. I misunderstood my instructors words on approach speeds with the floats on. Kept coming in hot and bouncing back into the air. After about three trys to land, I said to hell with it and approached at what I thought was a proper speed and greased the landing. My instructor just shook his head when I told him what speed I was trying to set down and Busby,(Aerolight), was killing himself laughing at me. Called me a wanker.
    I don't get to fly very often anymore, but the memories of the fun we had with these UL's will stay forever. I sold it after it tried to kill me the fourth time. Two stroke engines suck. Two weeks after I sold it ,the plane was written off by a tornado that swung through my home airport. Remember that Steve? A very sad day after spending almost two years rebuilding with Steves help. It had one hour of flight time on the clock when Tommy tornado took my(well, not mine anymore) toy away.

    Thanks to all for the BD wishes. I can now join the Geezer league.

    Thanks for the tip, I signed up for email deals. If I ever see a T300 for $199, I'll buy 2! I tried again after the email came to me, but that promo code still says "not a valid promo code." Sometimes these things are for the best, I don't really need a T300 today. I just love deal shopping!

    I'm new to league racing and was wondering what view do most people use to race. I use the view where you can't see any part of the car, just the meters.

    @Mike Lobban
    Happy Birthday Mr. Slow-ban! (gonna hafta thank singlepaddy for that one!) You are one of those rare individuals who, with humor (or a bump in a quarter panel), make someone's day brighter. If we only pick on the people we like, you are by far, a most loved SNAIL!
    :cheers:
