If you are a first time subscriber to this thread and want a number, copy the list below, and paste it in your post, then add the next available number starting at post #25. I will try to review these every day and keep this first one up to date. I may miss a day or two, so hopefully doing it like this can keep things in some sort of order.

Official Member list, currently at 56 members as of 9:30 CST 2-1-14

The other thing is I will be flying off a grass field. Maybe I should call Sig

May I also join the Sig Brotherhood?

All us old-timer control-liners always used the rule that each new blade took off 1" from the length. A normal 2-blade 10" would be a 3-blade 9". That's worked well in C/L for AGES!!

I've been away from the hobby for about 40 years. I'll bet I'm the only guy flying a 1974 Sig Klipper. Box fuselage covered with silkspan, 45" foam wing, painted to look like the one on the box and powered by its original Veco .19. An antique, just like me.

I also have a NIB 1/6th Cub from about 1980 or so.

If the list is up to date, I'm no. 57. Count me in.

Soon. Maybe tonight. Since New Year's Day I have landed it once and krashed it twice. My reflexes are a little slow, but it's a tough little bird.

Looks a lot like a Kadet but smaller than a Senorita and foam wings instead of built up. Can't wait to see your bird!

Geez, I remember the Klipper - great little plane. Looked like a Kadet but was a bit zippier. Would definitely like to see one flying again.

And we're all antiques, in one way or another.

Does my Sig have to be completed and flyable to join? I'm working on a modified Kadet JR, if that counts
