Default RE: Where have all the deltas gone?

The first couple of Diamond Dusts I ever built were just scaled off of build thread photos I saw at this forum....way back when I first joined RCU. Those planes sure seemed pretty awesome with OS.32 power.
I flew one once at a new construction job site at night shift break time and skid landed it [with aluminum plates glued to the belly] on a freshly paved concrete parking lot. It looked cool to see it skid land and the screech it made was pretty loud. It was cool to see it flying long passes over pavement instead of over a hay field.
