Well, I am back into RC after several years away. Being an engineer I usually research everything before posting so I haven't really got any posts going. I have read through the entire
F22 Epp/Depron Parkjet - with plans http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=740049
I feel I have a pretty good understanding of electric motors, batteries, the new radios. It is impressive how powerful the motors are and how light the gear is.
I am now 40 and looking at kids. I have foggy memories of watching my dad fly a U-control Cox PT-19 when I was 3. From then on it was U-control, Estes rockets, and then RC airplanes. My first plane was the ACE High MK-II. I took several months to put that together at 7yrs old. My dad tossed it and it had a great climb out. I turned it right back into the ground. It went back home in a pile. We had several planes after that. I also got my friends involved, one of which now is sporting several with real jet engines, and cursing my name for the amount of money he has spent.
It is good to be back in it. I look forward to getting my kids flying. I think you can learn so much about how things work by building and flying your own.
My squadron consists of a GWS Zero, ME-109, and Corsair not yet put together. I also have the F-22 I built out of 6mm depron which is my best flying plane.
I also had to get my brothers back into this hobby. They now both have radios and parts to start building.
Thanks for all the guidance and help through the posts,
