    It's already back in the air. Got a new body for cheap. Put the foam in hotwater to relax it, added toothpicks and clue those in, followed by CA clue Fixed this one and about to buy another cub I found very cheap.


    This sh** is addicting..lol Dad seems like he wants to fly so that's why I'm looking at another plane.

    I started with a Gentlelady sailplane. I slope soared that on any ridge with wind I could find for lift.
    Got better and built faster slope soars and bigger thermal lift sail planes I'd use a high start to launch.
    Then got into power planes, mostly .40 size gas. Augered a lot of those....
    Started on 1/4 scales after that with a Telemaster ( to tow up other sailplanes ) then a Piper J-3 cub..
    For some reason that I don't remember, got out of it. Sold off or gave away everything....

    Now yous guys got me surfing R/C shops...

    I'm looking at one of these, a tiny version of the 2 meter beast I flew this weekend. I figure it'll be a super convenient grab and go plane that will fit in any car, and really easy to fly. The only thing bad about small planes is that they are squirrely in just about any wind, but that can be solved with a gyro.

    I used to fly cheap 3 channels back on grad school. I haven't flown in years except for small, cheap indoor helicopters. There's an RC club that meets within walking distance of my house, so I need to get back into the hobby sooner or later.

    i had a skyhunter in that size, ever since i told myself they have to be bigger than 1200mm lol.

    I got plenty of space to fly and have come to really like a flying wing. Hell I might break out the chaser again and get it back in the air lol
