OK, so I was so impressed by a Twisted Hobbys Click a couple f weeks ago that I pulled the trigger and ordered one. Alil more than I usually spend on an EPP plane, but when it arrived, I was amazed at the quality of the kit, and it's components. Every thing but the glue and the equipment. The online manual is very good, just wish some of the pics were a lil bigger, but we are getting it done. So far, everything has fit like a glove, and it is going to be a straight as an arrow plane. Kudos to those that engineered this thing, and to the programmer of the CNC equipment that cut it. You can't get the wings on wrong, and the horizontal stab will not go on upside down(not that I have ever done that). Sandy is impressed with the kit, and if Mine flies like the ones I saw last weekend, there will be a couple more in the stable Gotta run for now, it is time to start making pushrods. The Click is complete, and looking good. Slightly over weight, but so am I. All ready for the maiden some time in the next few days in the local gym.

It has been over a year since I came back to RC. I have made the transition from mode 1 to mode 2, and I am starting to get pretty comfortable with it. Aerobatics come easier, and the mishaps (insert crashes) are fewer and further between Flying indoors is not nearly as intimidasting as it was in the beginning. Thanks to Gary Jones (The one and only), Dennis Robbins, and Chris Bowker for all you guidance and help. Now wheere did I put that box of foam, the knife and the glue HMMMMM gotta go build more planes, down to 54 in the stable now. They are having babies.

I shall now be known as Mr. Foambuilder, not Rapid Roy. I am by no way rapid as I used to be, so this name fits me much better.

Man this Foamie thing is bad for the pocket book. Seems like there is always something new to get. But WOW what fun!! Great bunch of guys and gals here too. Looking forward to more indoor flying soon.
