Controller exchange time
Back in May, we had an unfortunate controller meltdown just days before our final event in Raleigh. Bad news for sure, but even worse, the Raptor controller has been out of production for nearly 5 years. Fortunately, I contacted Peter Senkowski in Ca. and he agreed to send us a Raptor "loaner" overnight and he would rebuild our damaged controller. He has finished our Raptor and completed a 200 mile burn-in so it is time to send the loaner back. This Thursday, we will remove and ship out the controller and await the return of old smokey. Hopefully we will not have a repeat performance requiring the fire extinguisher!
