RE: Time for another new trainer

I would say it is time for a second plane then a trainer. Sounds to me like you can fly so it is time to move up to the "second" plane.

RE: What is the biggest issue for the future of RC Model Aviation

When I started flying 19 years we had to "find" a place to fly because there were no local flying fields.

From that time until I joined MMRCA (AMA charter 812) I had to change flying locations...

RE: 1200 Mah NIMH/6.0V question

You should be able to complete four 15 minute flights. I was taught that the standard (what normally comes with the radio) battery packs are good for an hour of use. More than likely this is...

RE: Sig Kougar Build

My question is how fast do you want it to be? I had one of these planes years ago and from what I remember they are not slow. I had a magnum 45/46 on mine with a APC 10x6 which if I flew at a fly...

RE: Sheeting a wing

RE: Trying to land in a small area..any help?

I don't mean to be rude but you have 300 feet by 180 feet to land the plane. That should be sufficient to land just about any 40 to 60 sized plane.
