    That's some complex $#!?, Heck taking the movement apart and restoring it takes some skill. A trade to which I wish I knew. Need to find out how long the schooling is. Maybe a new career. Never know!

    As a young kid, I had the patience and ability to handle playing with assembly of small stuff. Now? I have things flying and getting lost changing a battery.
