    Old Downtown Carrollton gave the Town Square a face lift and now it's more like it was in the 1940's.

    Thanks, Airborne. What are the chances of that ever happening. I had done a Downtown Carrollton video a couple of years ago after I got the Zenmuse 2 axis gimbal and made a promise to myself I would go back after I got the 3 axis.
    Here are a video you may not have seen that you might relate to.

    Thank you. I have thought many times about going up to Frisco to get some of the construction but i think the security might be tight and secure and I don't want to get into any trouble. I'm one that likes to sneak in real early and get out.
    I want to go up to Denton. I'd love to get that old court house. I also need to do some research on the highlights in Denton.

    Getting up early is the hard part. Where do you live, maybe I'll do it for you and motivate you a little more. I'm always looking for cool places to video.

    I'm familiar with Collinsville but have never been there. Does it have that small American town feel? I sort of like that since I grew up in a small town. You also mentioned railroad tracks, it that a railroad area with lots of train activity?

    I'm sorry, I got Collinsville mixed up with Collyville. I'm looking at Collinsville online right now. I'm looking for the Toadsuck Saloon.

    Before the town of Toadsuck, there was a saloon named Toadsuck. And I don't even live there.

    I just moved here about 5 years ago. I don't claim it, lol....

    I read about the saloon. good luck finding a saloon up here in Baptist country now. those must have been the good old days. I'd buy you a drink if you came up, but we would have to drive 30 more mins to a bar... lol...

    Trust me, I totally understand. I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma and my dad was a Baptist preacher. I was always in trouble. It was not easy and that is why I like the big city.

    I am balancing some Graupner props right now. Up early to go fly tomorrow morning. Nothing special, just flying. I put new Hacker motors on my quad and I'm experimenting with different props.

    If your dad is a deacon, we'd probably get along pretty well.
