It was ALMOST 40 degrees today, with the winds down to 8-10MPH so I headed out to maiden my newest plane, the RocHobby Waco my wife got me for Christmas.

Welcome, Rob!

Someone will be along any moment to recommend that you get an RC Flight Simulator to practice on. It's not a bad idea at all. Prices range from free to a couple hundred dollars.
