RE: hobby vs sport

Like others said, it can be both. However, to me , at age 64 and only a recent rc pilot ['07], it's a hobby. I do this to relax, have fun and associate with people I otherwise might not have met. ...

RE: BH T-28 Assembly

Luke,

I have decided to use the OS .61 on the T28 . It makes more sense to find an appropriate size plane for the TH.75
