Default Classic poor to classic rich.


I'm feeling pretty Jazzed. A fellow D7 pattern pilot passed some classics my way. Among them were an Arrow and an Aurora. I also got fuselages and cores for a Banshee and Brushfire. After my upcoming move looks like some refurbishing and building.

I havenít done too much R/C lately due to moving from Sacramento to Portland. I did manage to get to a swap meet in McMinville this morning. Managed to find a couple gems. First is a newly rebuilt OS RFP .61. The second is a NIB Andrews Aeromaster kit. The engine will eventually go into my Aurora and the Aeromaster will be powered with a ST .61 ABC and Jett mufflers combo that I have. Itís shaping up to be a busy spring/summer.

Welcome to Oregon! I went to the McMinnville annual swap meet too, but didnt find anything calling my name. Its a fun event! So you are in the Portland area...just wondering what club or location you will be flying at? I fly in Dallas if you ever want to explore this far south.

Thank you very much for the invite. I will most certainly be taking you up on it. My wife and I do enjoy getting out and exploring. One of our mottos is " Adventure is out there ". I have been out flying a few times and have joined the Molalla club. I intend to go visit the Dusters club in Woodburn as well. I also have an addiction for sailplanes so I will be visiting the PASS field in Saint Paul next weekend. I haven't been able to get out much yet as I am still working in Sacramento. That ends on the 20th and after that I will be in Happy Valley permanently. My plans have somewhat changed with regards to the classics. I may be listing them. As much as I would like to refinish them and get them flying, I don't think I will have the time. I've been more interested in playing Grandpa lately then working on models.

Speed - Have seen your posts through the years, always a good read. So, your a "Portland-ite' huh. Yep I am a 'valley rat' as born and raised in the Central Valley,
(Visalia) left 20 + years ago, and didn't look back. Now, in FABULOUS - Bellingham,Wa . Great area, and if your explorin' a bit, come on up we have a great club and field and the largest casino in the county is 2 miles away ! Great food to.
Oh, by the way, were holding our 15th annual Warbirds and Classics Over Whatcom on July 27/28th. Flyers from the area and Canada is expected. New this year, were including Classics up to the year of 1960, so we are looking forward to seeing all the good aircraft, Mono Coupes, Ford, Luscombe, Citabria,
Ryan's, Cessna's, Piper, and more. More meaning, full scale flybys, pylon racing demo (club races held throughout summer)

Here's our website: Bellaire RC Flyers
