The local news report about it said he was going to build a special slopped runway. I guess maybe a belly landing...

Looks great Saramos! But, please, for the love of humanity, check the ailerons on the taxi out with this one!! Good luck with it!

BTW: with the sheeting and glass job, what's the total weight?

I am a Basin Beliver. As you travel down a two lane curve of a roadway the rush of the city seems to fall away for me. The Big Boys play here. When I was a kid to have a RC airplane was a adult thing. All the mags had them ( the adults ) holding thier aircraft they were to my mind the Big Boys. You may begin to get the feeling that come up for me almost every time I visit or fly there. It is a special place.

Like all envirorments that are shared some days are more fun then others. That's the way life is. Some folk are kind in words and deeds and some are not. No news here. It's just that at the Basin
childhood dreams do come true. Follow the posted rules. Ask questions about what you don't understand, and most of the time fun and the enjoyment of Rc flight will follow.

Life is at the end of the day a one way adventure. The trick is to remember that thought and enjoy everyone companionship as we fly alongside one another during our brief visit here on earth.

All my best to everyone,
merry merry,
Jeff "rctraymanusa" Sandler

I saw that video about a montha ago. The guy flying has real bad judgement. Some say his nose wheel broke others say bad piloting skills. Either way he should not have taken off that close to the crowd. It is amazing to watch the video and how close he almost hits the guy diving head first.
