Good luck. My solution after wasting three years of aggravated flying, numerous dead stick landings, was to get rid of the two I had on ebay. I did get good at dead stick landings.

A couple of my friends had those. One even let me fly his. I built the Stuntman 23. Which was anemic with the Cox .049 Golden Bee that I had. Don't remember how I got that. Climbs dives,...

Sounds good. If you can, go to a bigger plane. That will help as well. It's weird, but as an intermediate flier, that little switch Safe on has saved my butt as well. On a windy day very easy to get...

And I agree, most of the time I fly with SAFE off, but I'm real good at losing orientation or flying on a windy day and get into trouble. Flip the switch SAFE on. It has saved me more than once.

Sounds like a rant airsteve, but you're entitled to that. I get it. I see it at my field. I actually consider myself a curmudgeon as you describe, and I'm damn proud of it. I'm 67 and I am what I...

I know the feeling. I have some small RC planes I could fly at a park, but I'm considering flying a kite by myself instead. It could bring a smile to others from a distance.

Yeah, I agree with most of that. My Kadet Senior needed almost 3 ounces of nose weight to make it balance. But I only had a Thunder Tiger GP .42 on it, a fairly light engine. I wish at the time I...

I always launch my Parkzone Wildcat with low rates on and Safe on. Which is great for a safe level launch. But I'm am an experienced RC flier and once it's out and gains a little altitude, I turn...

We used to take a needle or pin and move the coil until it touched and made contact, put it back on the engine, and many times it worked to get it started.

I fly mine using a Thunder Tiger GP 42. Very lazy flying all over the field. A Thunder Tiger Pro 46 might be a better match. With the GP I did have to add nose weight. I built mine as a 3...

I agree with you, but do you think the opening poster is even interested considering the time that has elapsed? I'd be surprised if he even still flies controline.

For me with my ParkZone Wildcat, it doesn't have GPS. So for the landing I fly it to a location that I believe is a good spot to start the descent to landing. Turn on Safe, throttle all the way...

Almost a year later and I'm still flying the Escapade. I can do 9 ten minute flights before my Voltwatch starts showing a warning. That's a lot of flying in one day. It's a good looking and flying...
