I've recently started...with some of the cheap-o micro RTF planes made by AIR HOGS.

They seem good for the beginner. (Don't wanna crash a pricey nice plane)

Share PICS!

Used to be, not enough time anymore. All I have left is a 6' Yellow Aircraft model F4D Phantom II. Turbine engine, nav and landing lites, flaps, retracts, tailhook. Ive kept it because its painted up to match the real one I flew. Has my squadron insignia and callsign on it.

I only bought an RC plane one time, 2-stroke engine, it turned out to be too heavy and I launched it off a hill, it couldn't keep flight, hit ground, and shattered and a broken prop. That's the last time. I would love to get a P-51 Mustang or Corsair. Or even an F-16 with a micro jet.

Or a Harrier! I love those vertical take offs!

There are a few flyers here.

I'm still in the planning stages of a scratch built, all wood, electric P-38 Lightning from my own plans.
After 30 years of building and flying, it will be my last one.
It will have one flight, then put on display.
Just like the Spruce Goose.

Somewhere around here I posted the instructions on how to build this:



It uses rewound computer disc-drive motors!

Another member took this style and kicked it up about 200%, with some great designs, cool flights, and some really nice hand-built motors!
I searched and couldn't find it, but it's here!
There's also some nice flights on video around here.

Used to fly R/C about 15 years ago. Had a Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX that I built myself (scratchbuilt).

Sold it several years ago and just barely have time to mess with 1/48th scale static plastic planes now. Got about 50 of those!

I had a 1/5 scale Royal F4U Corsair. It was great for flying, ez start. It caught fire from fuel down the side of fuselage. Burned thru nyrod control cables before I could get it back for a landing. I just pretended a Zero got her.

A buddy of mine had an FW-190 when I had the Spit. We used to make the sky look like it did over London in 1940

(Course, both those types came later in the war. In 40 it would have been a Spit Mk II and a Messerschmitt Bf 109 )
