RE: How many here fly full-scale?

RE: How many here fly full-scale?

I have been flying r/c for way, way too long. IIRC I started when I was 8-9, so that works out to about 26 years. Geez, I'm getting old. :-)

RE: Global Skylane 45-60 build

Did you happen to check the back of the wing plans? The fuse plans were printed on the reverse. I just picked up one of these NIB, looking forward to flying it.

RE: Dodson Windsong

If all you want to do is fly club TD contests just stick some servos in it and go fly. :) It was about 5 years ago a Lovesong won at Visalia.

The issue with the Windsong is the lack of a spar...

RE: Advice needed on excessive wiring.

You can do that, but it can be a bit of work to plug and unplug. A little more elegant solution is to plug the battery into an aileron extension, it takes up less room but is easier to connect.
