    A buddy and I each scratch built a Flea Fli about a year ago and I am in the process of building a second one as a spare. I keep things simple and use Hitec HS81 servos in everything I fly including...

    It's the typical High Tech job security scam.

    1. Take something that works OK
    2. Throw it out in favor of something new
    3. Spend the next 5 years fixing the new so it works as well as the old...

    Porcia-

    No offense intended from me. I only thought it might be helpful to enumerate some AMA successes in order to see that some good does come from Muncie. The average sport flyer sees very...

    Porcia83-

    It would be very helpful if you would clearly state exactly what, in your opinion, are AMA's greatest accomplishments. Particularly those victories within the past 25 years or so....

    Clubs expend effort to ensure everyone is an AMA member, how is checking for FAA registration different?

    Whether they do it or not will depend on their membership's fear of being considered...

    Even worse, in Tyler we fly at a city park just within 4 nautical miles of an airport with an operating tower. I fear for the future of our field.

    The FAA is not the enforcement group we should be worried about. They will waste no time in notifying all local police departments that an FAA issued permit is required to operate any model aircraft.

    Mr Porcia83:

    Greed doesn't always involve money. In the case of the AMA their "Greed" is all about increasing power and membership, and to this end, they courted the "drone gang". EPIC FAIL!

    Yes greed and a total disregard for the potential unintended consequences by the AMA, drone operators, fellow modelers, and the modeling industry.

    Beautiful airplanes. I especially like the Zero, not modeled near as often as other warbirds like the ubiquitous P-51. The lines of the Zero make me think it was a very easy to fly and forgiving...

    The Nelsons primer has very little smell at all and it thins with water and cleans up with water like the rest of their stuff. As for sanding, I don't wet sand, only dry sanding. I have...

    It is a 2 part primer. The activator/crosslinker is different than that used for their color paint. The mix ratio is also much different. I would use it under lighter colors that don't hide very...

    No, we agree. I think that you can tell from my handle that I keep my modeling budget well in check and I do not buy from Hobby King nor do I feel the need to do so.
