    Of course as has been pointed out before. Its not the plane or the drone. It is the irresponsible operator that is ultimately the one to blame. I have seen some cool videos posted by drone and...

    TimJ I don't know how many more airplanes I can buy and how that would get more people into the fixed wing aircraft flying. I can only fly one plane at a time. I have people stop and watch me fly and...

    I just got the new Tower Catalog in the mail today. The first fourteen pages were all dedicated to drones or multi rotor aircraft. I know many would like to be separated from drones and have it where...

    Here is a video of an LT-25 with an OS FS 40 and it seems like a good power match. My LT has a Magnum XLS-25 and is a good combo. For the tailwheel on mine I just ran another wire in tube to the...

    Good for you for wanting to build. I would suggest you find a used 40 size engine. Look on ebay. I say this because a bigger plane is easier to fly and carries the weight of the radio gear better....

    And of course you are correct. And once again it is too little too late. And the majority who have done nothing wrong pay for the irresponsibility of a few. Some things never change. But I still vote...

    Well then it sounds like the FCC and the sellers of FPV are to blame at least for part of this. But if the government was so lax about that what makes anyone think they will be any more diligent...

    Well then I understand why you stated what you stated. But to me the contemporary reference to a "drone" is one of the multi rotor craft. The aircraft that have started all this mess in the first...

    52 Larry the Cub is still in the box untouched. I also bought a very clean used OS FS 70 to go on it. Maybe this winter will see it put together. Right now I have been messing with rifles and...

    I just a few days ago let an OS FP-40 go on ebay. I had the winning bid up to the last few minutes. I had it for $40 NIB. It sold for $57 plus shipping. You can still find deals if you look. And...

    Jester I agree with everything you said. As a matter of fact I sometimes wonder how something can be manufactured, packaged, shipped and a dealer buy it and resale it for the price they do. Volume...

    Hello Hydro. I was just trying to help a returning pilot to use what he had with the smallest amount of money spent. Most likely with new batteries and a thorough check out his old radios will get...

    Their are lots of videos on youtube showing models flying over a mile high and through fog and cloud cover. There is no way a pilot or spotter can keep track of a model being flown like that. Its...

    I doubt anyone is going to come along that can top the most excellent answer that Jester just gave you. You might want to study this plane a little further. It flew across the Atlantic in 1998. I...

    Thanks Bax. I am printing it off as I write this. With the manual I may be able to build the fuse without the plan. My wing plan is in rough shape but I may be able to use lots of tape and make it...
