Hee hee.....Booth, Sucks....hmmm, what am I thinking....?

I am going on Friday after work...5 minutes from office and free parking. Probably not much to see, just want to get those free stickers, free RC magazine and talk to the Serpent/Xray ppl and make sure our accounts are updated...

Kinda want to see the new F350 High Lift...still not available in US yet.

I think most of the industry probably sees RCX as the bigger show.

Actually, I only have 1 TCS trophy.... Just a number of medals.

And actually, iHobby is seen as the bigger show. RCX had a lot of potential, but it hasn't really reached it's potential.
