Exiting-the-Hobby Clearance Sale

Not when it comes to my 3D flying. The beatings my poor 3D planes have to endure regrettably seem to fall more into the category of "recurring". :)

I have NEVER been able to do that with any of my planes except for my Slow Stick. Wish I could do it with my J-3 Piper Cub; I'd love to be able to fly that one from my back yard.
