Post by Shutter » Tue Dec 25, 2012 6:12 pm

This thread was really popular last year... so, what'd you guys get for christmas?

I got a bunch of clothes, hitman absolution, and a bunch of cool science/engineering and finance books. And some money and stuff.

Various sailing clothing and other assorted items. Got me a joystick! PLug and play for my mac. Logitech extreme 3d pro. Not top of the line, but a nice solid beginners stick. Gonna take a while to get the controls mapped out well and get used to stick flying. :D

This is what I currently use, as well as many others. I got me another since I worn my out with slamming it around all the time!

I got clothes, money for flying, a new leather flight jacket, an IFR kneeboard also for flying, some formation flying DVD's, and such.

I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Although me and my family don't celebrate Christmas, I got some pretty neat gifts too for my grades

- Wooden Handcrafted Boomerang
-A Wings Of Destruction DVD set
-A book about Air War, complete with hard to find photographs of WW1 aircrafts
-And an Ipod Shuffle

I love my family.. <3

EDIT: Oh yeah, does touching a real Spitfire and Mustang counts as a gift? I sure hope so.

The extreme 3d pro is fairly good. Mine acts up when you don't use it for a while, so just watch out for that.

This year I got a F-4 and A-10 model airplane set, paint, and also some tennis gear. Not that much, but I'm fairly happy.
