I am sitting around at 4am and thinking of a new plane.I really like a beaver,Those big fat bouncy tires for landing in the snow in Alaska.The old weathered red and white paint scheme.That wonderful springy landing gear.Maybe FLOATS ??? A good size would be a 50 inch span.Removable wing for easy transport.Plenty of electric power or maybe gasser.Could there be one out there on a shelf or in a cabinet or even on the floor no not the floor.I guess once the sun comes up I could start my search.Is it possible will I find my perfect Beaver?I wonder are plans available or a KIT could be an ARF maybe a RTF? Could it be will my search for that perfect plane end or is all this just a DREAM?? I am off to my layzboy for some more ZZZZZZZZSS
SEE Y'ALL SOON
Once again I am working on a plane.I reduced some P51 profile plans to a 20 inch wingspan.I cut two fuselage sides and am spacing them from connected together at rudder to a one and a quarter inch fuse thickness at firewall.I added one inch to center of wing to make up for spacing of fuse.Now I am assembleing the whole deal so I can set up my electronics. The problem is I am building all these indoor planes to have fun with over the winter and have not located a place to fly indoors.Stupid human trick once again.If anyone that reads this knows of a place to fly indoors in maryland feel free to let me know.For now back to the build I guess its tlme for some glide testing. As soon as I figure out how to load some pix from my camera I will put some up.

This is my first blog entry I just put some carbon fiber rods in a foamy F4F I am building I hope it will fly good.Dr rc cut it for me he does a great job and will cut what you ask him to.I have a tower pro 2409-12 on it and these usually fly nice.I will try and get some pixs up soon. Just heard on news the hurricane is on a direct path to us so I should have plenty of build time coming.Hope power stays on.People here are going crazy all generators are sold out and the walmart did not have a flashlight on the shelf when I went today for carbon arrows.I had to sit in line to get gas that is the first time since the gas crunch.Got to put laptop on charge so I can use it if power goes out.Hope we don't lose WIFI. See ya after storm JIM
