All this RC talk figured I'd post some of mine.
The little green guy in the middle was a present from Mrs. Clause
Has a 720p camera under it, not too bad a video, will take pictures also.

Like all groups there will be cool, helpful people and the jerks. In NY, enough of us got fed up with the BS at the big local club and started out own. Just to annoy the other group out shirts were hot pink! Ha ha!!
Gotta get Jay to upload the pics he took of my two main planes. The one where the wheel popped off on landing and is about 6" from where it belongs is classic!

Thanks Yip, we have Phoenix, but it seems marginal. Problem is we only have an old pc laptop to run it on, and none of them run on Mac platforms. Maybe Phoenix is accurate, because I came home and crashed the T28 about 30 times.........


We'll take your advice and join a local club, thanks. There's a paved strip RC field right on the lake just east of the field. Y'all who have come out to play may have seen it as we flew the lake shore. We're going to go over there and introduce ourselves. Are RC people warm and

On the subject of RC, how about a C17.

If I was to "go big" the simplicity of a WWI fighter appeals to me…

resistance is futile Jay! Go to Hobbytown and buy yourself a $300 styrofoam cooler and fly it straight into the ground like the rest of us!

Well Jay, looks like we have invented new ways to spend money here at MA2A!

As usual Glenn, you crack me up!

Ordered Great Planes Sim 7 through Amazon this afternoon, Jan. 2nd delivery so we can play with it a few days before Chandler has to go back to school in a week. Oh yeah, and I have to go back to shooting to support yet another dollar draining interest.

Worse yet, while looking for a good deal on the GP Sim program, I happened across a foam B25 ARF from someone. Don't worry though, they video says that it's very stable and easy to fly.......................

Gotta go dig a really big hole out behind the hangar.

Check out nitroplanes.com 25 - (odd name for electric shop) but anyways. comes with retracts, bombay doors, etc...you can put the 8 channel radio i'm sure you're buying to good use!

http://www.nitroplanes.com/36a25-1600-b25-silver-arf.html

I bought their large scale Corsair and proceeded to crash it about as fast as you took care of the trojan. At least I didnt have time to put the gear down before it went in so the retracts werent damaged.


I think the general R/C hobby is kinda lame nowadays with all the cheap dispoable ARF park flyers nobody has any pride in their airplanes. Every field you go its the same T28 held together with clear packing tape.

When I was a kid my dad and I flew glow balsa planes and there was no ARF. we had to build the whole airplane from a pile of balsa pieces - assemble the wings with a jig, cover in monokote, completely rig the thing - took a year or more to finish one sometimes.

Do I have a year to build an r/c plane i'm going to crash in a 30 seconds after takoff? no. I guess its like the rest of our lives - right here, right now, better, faster, cheaper, trash it and move on. Dont get me wrong, they're a hella expensive lot of fun but the soul seems lost now a days.

I'll also ad my endorsement to the sim - its what finally got me flying again after 20 year break. its espcially helpful practicing the phase where the controls reverse as the plane turns towards you.

Thanks for the vote of confidence on my skills but my personal rule is never fly another mans R/C airplane - I dont want to turn into some story on FM.com.

Some awesome looking machines there Rob - i even see an E-flite Apprentice back there. Thats what I started with. It held up pretty well to a lot of abuse. I think what finally killed it was the $350 double pane storm window it went through at the neighborhood middle school.

Thanks Glen! I have the Nitroplanes B-25. Repainted it to look like our local CAF Maid in the Shade. Not a beginner plane flight-wise. But incredible for the money! You can see the light blue #18 tail behind the Pitts. The Apprentice is my son's. He's 8 and has been flying it for a year. Desperately wants to fly my YAK but needs a little more practice before I hand over the controls!

So far it looks like Isap 2014 is a Go.
Are there any more who are planning to go?

@ Jeff: <blush> </blush>

@ YipDog: I wouldn't mind a few of those juicy looking LiPos

@ all: As the New Year rapidly drags itself upon us, I would like to thank you all for the entertaining times that I have enjoyed by seeing your photographs and works of art.

Above all, I have appreciated your friendship over the year. I have made many fine friends here, some I have had the very real pleasure of meeting in the flesh, others in cyberspace. Which ever way, it is a valued experience. Thanks.

Diana & I extend our good wishes for 2014 to each and every one of you and your families.

Donald

Likely to be a No Go for me.

Having been to Japan & Vegas since October, I can't justify the costs for ISAP.
Struggling to justify the costs of renewing my expiring membership also.

I agree. Although it's not a bad thing to get more people flying and into the hobby, no one really has any skin in the game and they don't stick around as long.

I started out building with my Dad and it really taught me quite a bit as far are responsibility, especially if I'd have to go fix it. You were much more careful.

Way back when you had to put some work in the model. (Notice my Dad made me learn on a taildragger!)


Dabbled in Jets for a while...


But my 18 year old 1/5 scale Corsair is my favorite...

Nice Chris, love the F16.
I had some of the electric and gas powered cox machines, you know the one's with the strings that made ya go around in circles and make ya sick, . Never tried the balsa wood ones, lotta work in there for sure, I'd be scared to fly one after all that work.

Chris…looks like a Byron Corsair? Had one of those! Spun it into the ground after someone said the real Corsair was placarded for spins…i.e. DONT! I had to test the theory on mine and got it into a gorgeous flat spin…went to recover and it reversed! And then it was done!

I agree that some of the joy has left RC since the "ready to fly and almost ready to fly" craze took off. Nothin like the adrenaline rush of a maiden flight on a plane that a ton of effort went in to.

Gotta dig up pics of the one plane I couldn't bring with me to AZ…just too big. A 100" scratch-built biplane, the QDB, designed by one of our club members in NY. A cross between a Waco and Stearman. It took well over a year to build. We group built 10 of them at the designers shop...cut all the wood, cut foam core wings, welded all the cabanes and landing gear and hand-laid all the fiberglass parts. Had to master a lot of different skills to build that way. I towed a 20' banner with that plane to propose to my wife who was also into RC.

Ha! Yup it's a Byron. 4.2 w/o lame "rubber" prop. Great flying airplane. It's been around so long now it looks like it has been through the war..
