Even though my bombers are glow powered, I am just a squadron member.
Paul, (aka Drumbum) created the video. I am not sure if he is an RCU member.

I think there will be a few of us out there at the "Safe Fly" this Sunday early.

I hate doing this, for my dislike for the powerplant and country of origin but here it is

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...75mm_PNF_.html

This is the most scale one of them all and it flies the best. Will someone change that landing gear please!

You can't get one like mine though. I am the one in the video with the flaps down. Mine is about 25 years old, rebuilt last year, all wood and glass. Power by 4-OS .15CVA's and Robart air retracts and tailwheel. 15 pounds. You can still get the plans and parts on ebay, even the whole kit somtimes too.
But who would want to build one when you can just pour it out of the box, push the button and play[:'(]!

Phew, I am relieved. If a bad guy with an rc plane had access to the basin, no telling what he could do. Lucky he can't possibly take off an rc plane from any street, public park or parking lot in Los Angeles. Thankfully, the bad guys always obey the rules, right?

So I'm in So Cal for the week and I brought my 48" EF extra and met some friends for lunch out there today.. Wow,, some things never change,, they just get worse,, what a circus you guys have going there these days. guys flying over the pits, behind people standing on the flight line, over the entrance road, guys flying (and crashing) in the parking lot, just about a total free for all. and this was just a lazy Tuesday afternoon, I can't imagine what the weekends are like these days.

Still fun to fly there though

Same, x10.

Everything you mentioned is the result of the Electric Flyer section the Valley Flyers club installed.
