RE: CRRC PRO GF50i gasoline POWER

I can't say I'm disappointed in this motor, it may very well work out fine. I got it from e-Bay with a bid so low I did not expect to win. I did contact TruTurn by e-mail today, and am waiting for...

RE: THE PARK ZONE "GET REAL" WARBIRD CHALLENGE!!!!!!!

Whiz, where are most of the entrants posting? Are they here in RC Universe or in RC Groups? I have never been to RC Groups but if its worth going there I will.

RE: ParkZone P-51 Mustang RTF

RE: THE PARK ZONE "GET REAL" WARBIRD CHALLENGE!!!!!!!

OK, I'll talk. I am depicting an FW 190 A8 as flown by Walter Wagner during operation Bodenplate. This is an early FW and Wagner was not the greatest pilot. He attacked the wrong target, suffered...

RE: ParkZone P-51 Mustang RTF

I can not allow such a statement to go unchallenged. Too many Frankies have willingly sacrificed all for the greater good of RC. When a soldier fights an overwhelming foe , he often does so so that...

RE: Great Planes Sukhoi SU-31

Flew the newly lightened plane today. Flys very well. Take off is super smooth. I am working on my landings. I seem to come in too fast. It flies inverted effortlessly. It will climb forever....
