I also noticed lately looking around that I couldn't find any traditional trainers out there like a PT-40. I guess newcomers are going for the little foamies that have that self righting technology....

I went back and realized that you have to login under last years login info. I was surprised that it does not charge for renewal. I'm good to go for 2 more years.

I said give him nothing because you gave him what he had in it and after two years he has no vested interest in it anymore. If that were me I wouldn't expect anything from you.

Right now gas for me isn't a good choice. Mostly because I drive a small car and 40 size planes are all I can transport. If gas engines get down to the 40 to 50 size range then I will be more than...

I often wonder if the decline in the hobby is for lack of kits to build. I am of the era that if you wanted to fly Rc plane you had to build it from at least a kit. Yes, ARF's were around but very,...

I love that plane. I had one years ago and have thought about building another. They fly really nice and I like the vintage look of them. I will be keeping an eye on your build. Have fun!
