Hello Scott, Jay Boyce here, It's been a long time. I need your help. I just bought a Soma frame from a guy who didn't know how to put it together. I know you had one and liked it. My question is, do you have any pictures or any diagram of how this thing is supposed to go to together or even what it is supposed to look like. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Brother

Hello Mr. Dublin
Yes we met in Pueblo when you were on your way back home and I was on my way to fly my Sport Copter M912. I still have your card and would like to chat sometime with you if that is alright.
