Hey, old guy here. I've never had my own blog before and I'm not sure how active this one will be.
I had been away from RC for nearly 20 years until about 3 years ago. At that time I had no real plans to return to the hobby. My Grandson approached me one day and asked if I knew about RC planes. It seems had been out shopping with his mother ( my only daughter) and they'd seen someone flying RC planes. She told him he should ask me if I would help him learn.
Well I agreed to help, and it turned out that I really did have a interest in getting involved in RC again. My grandson can now fly small trainers and quads but has such a busy schedule between Boy Scouts, school, and church, that we have very few chances to fly together.
This summer my interests have move towards larger helicopters. I now fly a 550E, 600N and 700E DFC align helis.
But I just found out today that my new E-flite Carbon Z Cub is on the way, and should arrive on Monday. This cub works out very well because it will fly on the same batteries that I use in the 550 and 700E helis. All I need to do is change the EC3 on the ESC over to a EC5 or make an addapter and we're in business.
Well that's about it for an intro post in this blog, maybe I'll post next week and have some pics of the new cub.
