RE: Aerobatics Video II

RE: Aerobatics Video II

RE: Losing a giant scale...

RE: Losing a giant scale...

Yeah, that is an interesting point! What makes me kinda drunk is the euphoria of a really good flight. I know that probably sounds nuts...but there is nothing like an incredible flight where you...

Losing a giant scale...

Fellow modelers,

I lost my 88 EF Yak this past Friday on it's 30th flight from a rather dumb mistake. While refueling, I had a half tank still in the plane and the gas was overflowing coming...

Joe,

RE: Kimball-Somenzini Python Build Thread
