Hi to all, as you can see I'm new to the forum. I was talked into buying a Pred after being assured it was a beginners delight, began to assemble it and now almost finished. Still waiting for the motor and battery. Sorry to say I found this thread too late and feel I screwed it up so bad it probably will self destruct the first flight, so I ordered another to do it right with the help of all of you. I have learned so much reading this thread, thanks to all. Must admit I never was in to r/c. Bought a Super Cub from Hobby Zone to get started, only had it up once, over a hour. 20 seconds free flight, over an hour in a pine tree. Took a 28 foot extension ladder and a 15 foot pole to get it down. no damage to the cub. Not too bad for a 71 year old retired electrican. Never too old to have fun. My wife of 51 years says I never had a childhood, so I'm having it now. It's nice to be able to afford a belated childhood.
I have been into model railroading for about 20 years, and still injoy running trains arround and arround. If interested go to http://rme09216.general-hosting.com/
and click on trains.
By the way are the flight simulator training kits worth the effort?
