A History of Flight
I've been flying for over year now. I started late last winter. I was waiting to see if there was going to be a race season for RC trucks. But the city decided to shut down Riverside, our local RC off road track. It was a load of fun racing the nitro trucks. But eventually we didn't get our lease renewed after just a few seasons and the track was shut down permanently. What a shame. So I was looking for something new. I wanted to get away from all that dirt anyway, I figured the sky is way cleaner! So I started looking around at some planes... :D
I got started with the Aerobird Swift. What a handful! I thought tip stalling was a natural aerodynamic occurrence at any time during flight! Not to mention under powered. etc. etc. I remember to my horror trying to fix it's innards! Later on (maybe 6 planes later) I resurrected the Swift one and hopped it up with a 3500 brushless in-runner and 3S LiPo. The thing actually wasn't so bad to fly with a little power.
