Lowrance 2000c

I have just received this message from the Rans Flyers group. It may be of interest to the owners of Lowrance GPS units.

This is just a heads up. Lowrance confirmed to me that they are no longer going to market aviation related GPS units.I noticed less and less GPS products on their website so I wrote them and asked when we might be seeing some new aviation models. Here is their response:"Thank you for contacting us.We will no longer be making any aviation units, we are leaving that market. Please feel free to contact us if we may be of further assistance.Lowrance Customer Service Division of Navico Inc."The Bendix/King units are looking better all the time...Cheers,Dennis

This is a most amazing Remote Controlled [RC] model airplane - click link below to see it fly. Not only did they build its jet engines, but included retractable landing gear, and built it into a fully scaled model of the SR-71 that is good enough to fly. This SR-71 model was built by some German RC enthusiasts, and this is one nifty toy - and sounds REAL! plus it is probably more expensive than our ultralights
