While I could get a set of plans for a P-51 Mustang and scratch build it, why bother? It would just be lost in the squadrons of Mustang ARF/RTF models seen at almost every field, and quite frankly, I...

Thought I would post an update

Pre-flight checks were done, and the model rolled straight down the center of the runway,...

Yup, shipping is crazy. I'm going to wait for a local RC swap meet to see if they will sell.

Somebody dropped the ball, and put the wrong description with the wrong picture.

I'm certain the modeler in New Hampshire isn't too happy, either.

Model Aviation screws up

If you happen to check your November 2018 Model Aviation magazine, and check the "Focal Point" section (pages 56-57), and that gorgeous, gray and bright orange fighter looking aircraft in the lower...

Been there, done that.

This seems to be the age of 'instant gratification'. Why spend time (and often times, more money) building a kit when you can get a RTF foam plane, and be up in the air in...

Shipping a plane?

Has anyone had any experience shipping an RC airplane around 60" wingspan? I was wondering if it would be best to just bring it to UPS and find out what they would recommend, and how much it would...

Eject! Eject! Eject!

I'm seriously considering 'punching out' on the hobby.

Honestly, I think I've flown less than a dozen times this summer. Joe Nall was cancelled after a friend drove from NH to stay with us and...

Plasterboard (a.k.a.: sheetrock) will take pins well, but it's somewhat flexible, so you will need to place it on something more sturdy. I used to use a section of 3/4" (19mm) plywood and lay the...

Out of action for awhile

Laid up for awhile while I recover from being hit by a car while riding my bicycle. No broken bones, but my entire left side is either stitched, road rash, or sore. I guess it could have been worse....

No problem in removing the hub. A lot of motors give you the option to mount in front of the firewall (using the hub) or behind it (using the shaft). Just unbolt the hub and you're all set.

It may have something to do with colleges and universities that don't actually give grades out of fear of "triggering" students, and hand out degrees as if they were participation trophies.

There won't be. All it means is that electric 3D guys will be lined up, waiting for a chance to fly when the one or two pilot stations open up. And, you'll have guys flying 3D while the "slow planes"...
