New to rc flight and enjoying the learning curve. I have started my new hobby/addiction with a wild hawk from hf. I have fallen in love with this plane and think it is a great plane to learn with. We have had our struggles, but with a little therapy from rcgroups we have experienced great growth in our relationship........ And that is why i decided to join the blog fest.

The wild hawk is a bit long in the tooth, but any of the pusher/glider type planes should be a great learner for anyone. (bix,axn,skyhawk.....) you can stuff the nose in mother earth and not worry about prop/motor/gearbox damage. i have completely broken the front half of the fuse 3 or 4 times and been able to patch it back and continue the quest for flight. One crash destroyed the receiver, and that is the only one that cost more than some glue and tape. It turned out to be a blessing , the stock tx/rx was a little weak, and i found a spectrum 6i for $75 that can grow with me in the future.


I have been able to answer most of my questions from misc blogs on this site want to say thanks to the people that that share experiences and knowledge that help people get some air time.

I will post more detailed info about my first flights in the future. I also have some video........ I have never "posted" videos before? so i will have to figure all that out. yes i live in a cave and dont have a cell phone!

And yes, i have had about a dozen successful flights and landings ...... Probably about that many crashes also.
