I'm getting ready to make the Trainer 2 with my kids now that summer break is starting. I've got the kit from Russ, but when I look at Heads Up Hobby, some of the parts are out of stock (motor, battery) and one of the links (ESC) doesn't work any more.

Does someone maintain an updated parts list that I can cheat off of? I'm really just doing this by following instructs - don't know the ins-and-outs of picking alternative parts.

Also - any recommendations on a controller? Thanks!
 Please Allow 2-3 Week Lead Time from Purchase Date The Maker Trainer 2 Kit accompanies the Maker Hangar 2 series and supplies all of the hardware to assemble the plane. You will have to supply your own foam and electronics but this plane is still very inexpensive. The Maker Trainer 2 can be used for FPV or just having fun while flying a small, acrobatic, and easy to fly airplane. Electronics Are Not Included

If you look at the international parts link on his page, you can now get them from Hobby King. They have three warehouses and you have to make a separate order from each warehouse but you can get all parts.

It's 15min long, but totally worth it. Entertaining and informative.
One refrain you hear frequently from insurance companies, police, and the media is that 'speed kills.' It doesn't, and this is the best debunking of that myth that we've ever seen.

It appears that the standard tools used to identify chaotic signatures might be missing lots of hidden chaos — especially in systems that seem like they’re not chaotic at all.

I was super-excited about seeing Yo La Tengo + William Tyler + Steve Gunn at Hopscotch Music Festival. Turned out that they just made droning noise for like 6 hours.

Food was decent, but the restaurant itself looks pretty tired. I ordered take-out and had to wait an extra 20 minutes (past the time they told me to be ther). Kid portions are pretty tiny. I'd recommend Tropical Picken Chicken in Wake Forest for similar fare and a better experience.

I had several problems with Carolina Flooring replacing the floor in my master bath. There was a lack of communication between the person that came to my home to take measurements and find out the basic project needs and the person that created the estimate. When the guys came out to work on my floor, they discovered that it was different than what they were led to expect. To their credit, they admitted fault and did not charge me more for the extra work that they didn't plan for correctly. After discovering that there was an issue, however, it took weeks to get them to work out the plan to finish the work. They would never call me or reply to my messages - I finally had to show up at the show-room to get things resolved. While on site, it seemed that the guys doing the actual work had no autonomy to make decisions and had to run everything by the boss. The boss never came to my house and relied on texted photos to understand issues during the process. The guys that did the actual install did a great job, though, and I'm happy with the results.
