The Panther had a good showing, I camped with Dan & the Team, Cookout was a lot of fun.

Got to try some more Tig welding at the show, catching on a little better, looks like the Lincoln Tig 225 machine is the one to get after hearing about all the features, show special prices knocked it down a good amount. very tempting but I still have more learning to do. the 225 is the same machine WW has in his shop.

Both these “Drones” where in the FAA building, kind of an odd thing to have in there considering the current Washington Dogma, The truth in the matter is Multirotors are doing more for recruiting the next generation of Pilots, Engineers & Aircraft Factory Workers in the past few years than any thing else including the Young Eagles program has in the past 2 decades.

Before the Talking Heads, UN-informed Media, and slimy bureaucrats condemn this new technology they should first ask what else is going to inspire the next generation of Pilots & Engineers. The Next Commercial Flight you take the plane, pilots, crew could all be from China, American participation in Aviation would be a foot note in the history books.
