Given your address, you must be PCS'ing from S-J AFB. Where in Germany would you go? I spent quite a while at both Ramstein and Rhine-Main back in '91. Beautiful country if you haven't been there, if I had a choice of an out-of USA station, Germany is what I'd pick.

Plus, when you get over there, you can always say, "Gee, I guess I'm not in Kansas, anymore, Toto" Good luck, wherever, watch your Six.

Don't know much about the cars, etc, but they fly BIG stuff in Europe, given the kits from over there and the videos I've seen.

Germany all of the way. A lot of great, state of the art RC stuff comes out of that country. Weatronics RX's, Schulze/Orbit chargers and JetCat turbines just to name of few.

Well, Germany use to be a 4 year tour. Korea was a year and Kansas-why? Idid Korea, it was okay. At least in Germany you can "Do Europe" on their dime. besides, they have some great speed planes that we cannot get our hands on over here.

I spent seven years in Northern Europe 40 years ago. I finally went back for a visit this spring. Things have changed a bit. I still would give my left you know what for that 4 year tour you have.
As for Korea I have never been there but I have a friend that spent a year on the front lines over there. I don't think I would like it.
As for Kansas, I grew up in Nebraska. Its a good place to be from - far from.

Duty in Korea was/is okay. Gets old rather fast. Culture and all is different and you learn quite a bit but just limited to where you can go.

I live in Kansas, there are some great Korean resturants and the winters are not as bad here, and if you want Germans, go across the border to Missouri.

Germany all the way!!!! I was born and raised over there. Great place and alot to see. they have some of the best suff for planes!
I would give any body part to go back and it is one of the cleanest places I have ever been.
the only thing I would say is this.... if you plan on takeing any of your current Rc stuff with you be prepaired to change out all of the equiptment in them if you plan on useing any of it.

AF0331,
I live in Olathe, Kansas. Ft. Riley is the 11B's Nightmare, (Paradise). Lots of R/C Plane fields and ticks around. However, I did a Germany tour. For a Germany tour, you will need to get a new transmitter and receiver once you are there. My oldest son is a F-16 Pilot for the USAF. When he was stationed at Spandahlem, Germany in the 23rd FS, there was a R/C flying field nearby. We took his Top Flite P-40 to the field. The locals were very friendly. One gentleman was a German Polizei, (Police officer). They pointed out his transmitter and receiver of US origin would have to be replaced. However, once they found out he was a fighter pilot, they told him he was good to go and to fly anytime. You may also find that once in Germany, R/C is much mor expensive on the economy, due to the higher value of the Euro over our dollar. You may be using mail order a lot. Thanks for your service. Good luck in all of your endeavours. Should you end up in Kansas, drop me a line and I'll come fly with you sometime. I have many Warbirds.

Dumping you tranny will give you a chance to try out those fantastic euro type transmiters and a tray.
Don't knock it until you've tried it. Once your understand that the best place for the dual rate, extra function switches is actually on top of the stick itself, you'll be sold.
