Hi everyone. Been reading your threads for awhile and decided to join. Going to jump in the electric plane hobby feet first and decided I probably will need some expert advise. Can you guys refer me to someone? Just kidding. I currently have an offer in on a Fokker DVII and an SE5a, so I'm going to have a lot of questions! I'm not new to RC flight, but it's been 15 years since my last flight and a whole lot of stuff has changed! Thank you all in advance for your upcoming help!!

What have you in the past?

The Super Cub is a pretty good one.

Yep we all want the Jet because it looks cool - but even full scale pilots don't start on jets.

The WWI birds you like (I do too!) tend to be a touchy even with Horizon good engineering.

A favorite of mine for new guys, or folks returning to the hobby after a very long break.

A very easy build but get's ones feet wet in the construction of the things. Helps when trying to repair it. One knows where all the parts are supposed to be then.

Welcome to Watt Flyer. Great place.

Cheesy poofs are what Yankees get when they eat Southen Food!! bub, steve
