Default Anyone hear any more from Army Dad?

Just curious if anyone has heard anymore from Army Dad or his daughter? I was thinking about him for some reason today and realized his daughter hasn't posted for a while. Sure hope things are getting better for him.

hay guys long time no talk to. I am still alive and kicking Just went to the doctor last week and they put me about 70% recovered, how much better ill get is anybodys guess but the way i look at it i could be much worse. i can walk and talk but not the same as before, everything is a challenge but then ive never been one to back down from a chalenge. i am back flying but i have to have a craft where things happen pretty slow i just cant handel the fast ones any more. i am flying a lot of slowstick type plane and gliders both powered and unpowered. while Ive got everybodys attention i saw a picture of a carl glogberg viking converted fro electric rc anybody know where i can get plans or a kit. well yuo guys will be seeing a lot more of me now i havent posted sooner because my typing was pretty bad not that it was ever any good. gald to be back. Army Dad

Now that's the BEST news I've heard all week!

I am so glad to hear you are recovering well Dad! You sure had a lot of friends here at Wattflyer, and at my Church praying for you! It does my heart good to hear you are flying as well.

Sorry I can't be of assistance on the Viking, not familiar with it.

Oh, and don't worry about the typing thing... none of us are any good at that!:p

Take care friend and give my best to the family. Is Chris still deployed or is he home yet?

Well we'll continue to pray for him then, as well as all our other servicemen and women serving in harms way.

Welcome back Army Dad. I don't know why, but for some reason I just thought about you and had to ask if anyone had heard from you. I'm glad to hear your progressing so well. Keep after it. Every day will be better. Glad to hear you're flying again too.

Be sure to keep us posted on your plane choices and how you're doing with them.

Default He's Back!

Hello Armydad, great to hear you're back and recovering. Best wishes to you and your family!
I believe the Viking thread you're refering to is by Franny;
http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2629
There's photos and info there and she's also built a Goldberg Blazer converted to R/C. There's a thread on that (also) on "Old Timers". The Viking is her aerial photography platform and it works great! I fly with her quite a bit and can tell you the Viking would be just what you're looking for, slow, stable, easy to thermal.
Good Luck and Good flying, glad you're back.
Ron

Yup, welcome back, and great attitude!

There is a kit for a Viking, 50" span, 400-size motor. If you are interested, I can check the manufacturer, or someone else will know.

Here ya go: Spirit of Yesteryear models, website is www.soy.on.ca. All the ordering info is on there, including a catalogue of all their kits, including the Viking. Many other old timers are on there, and the kit prices are reasonable. Check with the online suppliers as well, I think some of them carry this line.

My buddy has a Viking, and the wood seems good, plans are very nice (seems to me it is laser-cut as well?).

I do hope your recovery proceeds apace, Army Dad...
