The Optimistic Pessimist














In the event that I start flying regularly (soon?)...the likelihood that I will break my propeller within the first year is statistically high.  A carbon fiber replacement for the one that my unit came with is $500.  I decided to get a wooden one for $250 to keep on hand for that statistical eventuality.  While I'm at it - also got a replacement windsock ($25).  Note to self:  Put the new one out only when I am going to fly and it will last a lot longer.  92,98,74,0,B
