Some great historical pics in this thread! My first was a PT-19, failed big time with it. I bought a Testors P-51 with allowance money and taught myself in the front yard with great success. Those...

Good move and worth doing. My father did flight instruction as a hobby so I grew up flying before driving. Getting a pilots license is more comparable to getting a college degree, you will learn...

I would say its evolving.

When I was a kid (70's/80's) the sky was falling and the end was near because there were nearly a half dozen ARF R/C planes available and the control line circles...

Anyone happen to have a copy of the 1985 RC Buyer's Guide? If so can I get some pics or scans? I figure this is THE thread to ask this question in.

I have been interested in them since the late 70's but they were beyond the reach of us teenagers, they were more something you saw in a magazine advertisement. I tried my first two helis in the late...

I built an electric aquastar and with (and only after) the addition of chines and a sharper step it flew so good! I forgot what ever happened to it, I think some non flying related thing. I made one...

Can forums come back?

I posted something similar on a car forum I am on and it started an interesting discussion. Forums like this one are at a small percentage of the traffic of ten years ago. But they might be poised to...

Unfortunately it seems the site is a zombie, the last update was about 5 years ago and there was no response to an email. I am sure one will pop up on ebay one day.

I sent them an email, the site looks a bit dated but hopefully they are still making kits. I will buy one just to trick it out "movie accurate" and display it.

The movie is an all time favorite of mine, so much so I have a restored XR350R at my hangar, which some data says is the bike from the movie (5 years deep into trying to authenticate it). Around the...

Is there an archive of scanned box art for older models?

In the pinball.arcade.retro console worlds we have vast archives of scanned flyers and box art for the games and that got me to thinking. Until the 90's kit boxes were plain cardboard for most...

Those are 2 strokes, it isn't about the money so much as it is the 4 stroke sound and suitability. That said, when there were no 30-40cc 4 stroke model airplane specific gassers the Hondas and Stihls...

First CL in a long time

I just bought a Sig Twister kit and it is under construction now, the engine is a .40 Saito 4 stroke, pretty much by the plans other than the engine choice. I grew up flying 1/2a CL and had many cox...
