    I would say "no". It will be difficult to repair (itty teeny 1.5mm screws on the wings and struts instead of nylon wing bolts) and is a great sport model but not very forgiving of mistakes. Good...

    Yep. 10 minutes of the inside of a woman's shirt. The pilot was following her because he was able to track the drone. BUT he was far enough away he did not SEE or his spotter SEE she had picked...

    Lose/lose here.

    How far away from the drone was he when he lost control? He might have taken something out if not crazy lady & dog.

    Obviously he was out of control and a long distance away. ...

    West System and System Three are heads and shoulders above Devcon or relabeled hobby chain brands (Tower Hobbies, etc).

    But the cure times are hours rather than minutes. No such thing as a free...

    If you want an excellent first floatplane without huge investment I'd suggest the Durafly Tundra. I am very impressed with mine. It's a fair sport flyer and a very capable float plane.

    By the time I get to 80" I am courting gasoline and not glow fuel.

    Do you want scale, sport-scale, sport or just something that lands on water?

    If I were building from plans for an 80"...

    Disagree. The RCM 40 will outfly the LT-40 in every caregory. But it is no longer available as an ARF and you have to build from plans.

    Nicely done video.

    I just [back]ordered one. Looks pretty interesting. Come with floats - and the videos make it look like a natural on water.

    Hopefully I'll find out soon. Takes the...

    I do this with some positive horizontal tail incedence in anything I build or assemble. Nothing more disappointing than a model that flies squatted.

    But now we learn it is the drone owners who have destroyed the hobby by bringing the FAA in to regulate us.

    And in the eyes of the FAA there is no distinction between drones, helicopters, fixed wing, multi-engine, etc. You are registering you. They...

    I don't think they accept Monopoly money for the $25,000 fine.

    And if you don't pay it's probably not LEGO prison thet you spend time in.

    I broke down and registered. To register there are a group of statements and you have to click the "I agree" radio box to proceed.

    Happily the first item is "I agree to fly under 400 ft". Rather...

    I pull the pins, wax them with a hard paste wax, then put them back in and epoxy the hinges. That way even if some epoxy wicks into the hinge joint the pin is still "lubricated" and will easily move...

    Yes - he is unsafe in overflying roads, vehicles, homes & structures, people in general.

    Obviously not an AMA member or he would have agreed not to do those things.

    I'm old school enough that I try not to use sub trims when installing the linkages. I still remember before computer transmitters when there were no model memories, so if you had more...

    I wouldn't say abandon it. It's a viable technique for cross wind landings if they can't be avoided. I just don't think it can be a mix. Kind of had to be adapted to conditions.
