Here is an e-mail from a good customer from Brownsville Texas that drove from south texas to pick it up. Photo is of his wife presenting the plane;
I hope that when you receive this email you are doing fine and your family as well. It has been a while since I visited your shop with my family. I do hope you remember me. I got that 1/5 scale TL-2000 from you no box, fit it into my Ford Escape. Well finally she is all built and has flown. Took me a while due to hurricane damage and flooding in our area for a while. It has been rough. I am attaching a picture of my wife at our club field with the finished plane.
