Well, it was a fun day at our annual fun fly in Tucson. I was able to fly my "rebuilt" Easystar and try out some rc cars. I tried the Traxxas Slash and an old Associated model. What I found out was that I am a better rc driver than I am a flyer! Though the cars are tempting, I still love the rush that I get when I put a plane into the air. There is always that feeling of "oh " That is what makes it fun! With cars, you can't mess up too badly and gets kinds boring after awhile. Now I am looking to finish my Swift 16 heli build so that I can get that into the air. All in all, it was a day of crashes, food, and fun! Gotta love fun flys!

I am looking for ideas on a beginner wing. I have some misc. rc parts such as a Castle Phoenix 25, Eflite Park 400 brushless motor, and a 2 amp Kokam lipo.
I don't have to use those components in the wing, but I would like to if it is possible.

Well, I am about to begin my first heli build. I still do not have all of the parts, mainly because of money issues. I do have a nice Scorpion 4025-890 and a Hyperion 80A ESC to go into my Swift. I am finally finished with my class and I have a nice 4 day weekend to begin my Swift 16 build. I am sure it will not be smooth, but oh well...it isn't like I am going to fly it soon anyway! Wish me luck!

Also, thanks to Kyle at RcSupersales.net for his great help and for going above and beyond my expectations for a retailer. I recommend that anyone building/flying helis to go an check out his site.

I am going to start documenting my Swift 16 build here, which is my first build. I ordered it from Kyle at RCSuperSales and I should have it on Thursday. I will be beginning it this weekend! If anyone can give me any tips, please let me know!
