You've got a point there about throttle and rudder on the same stick. Back in the stone age, Kraft used to sell a single stick radio that the hotshot pattern guys all swore by. Some have even updated...

I think you've hit it Dereck, almost nobody has tried this! Sounds like an interesting idea but what I've seen of PC joysticks has left me really shaking my head over their general poor quality. It's...

Hey Al! I think you'll enjoy the twist. With 15 years of non-flying you might want to consider a beat-em-up plane to get the reflexes back. An EPP foam profile 3D plane would be just what the doctor...

That's why I chose the Grim Reaper. With 55" wingspan it is a bit gentler to fly than the little guys, slows down and glides real nice. Seems to be a great size for a beginner.

Thank you pizzano for straightening that out. Not that 10,322 is a "good" number but it isn't 40,000. It's been many years since we've lost 40,000 in all auto accidents combined.
