Scratch-built from 2013 on
Returned to R/C flying in 2013. As I had built and flown extensively in the 1960-70s I wanted to stay with the building techniques and aircraft type I was familiar with. Most of my flying then was with pulse rudder and .049 engines so the tremendous changes in the hobby are taking some getting used to.

The Stunt Runt is REM, 42" span, 300 2 cell. Could use some additional wing area although it flew OK. Has now been passed along to another flyer.

I had a Roaring 20s in the early 1970s, rudder only and a .020. Flew fantastic over a span of years, probably close to a 1,000 flights before becoming fuel soaked and too dinged up. Built from the same plans, REM again with a 250 2 cell. Too fast and too small as a reintro plane, so built a second wing with two more bays, to 24", and reduced power to a 180 motor. Graceful and relaxing flyer now.

The original D.Q.A was the demo for Babcock's pulse rudder system but the plane flew so well it became more popular than the radio. 250 motor and a 32" span. Stubby fuselage, doesn't like to fly when windy.

The Lady Bug is an Andy Clancy design based off his Lazy Bee. REM, 22" span, and a 250 motor flys it well, a bit faster than it would appear and lands hot.

The J-3 Cub is the micro foamy everyone seems to have. Flys OK.
