Turning to the Dark Side

Well,
Lately, I'm not sure what the heck has been going through my mind, but I've done the un-thinkable. I've built and flown two nitro powered models. The first one, a Sky Raider Mach II is a club 40 pylon racer from World models. If you want to race with th eother guys, it's either that or the L.A. Racer. Either one has to have 1 of three approved motors and each has to use every part that comes with the ARF kit. I have to say, I'm having a blast with it. Then, as if denying my electric heritage.. I said yes to a "like new" Saito 82 four stroke motor. Well then of course I have to have a plane to put it in. So, now I'm flying the Seagull Models Decathalon with a four stroke slimer in it. I still hate the mess, but the power and the noise is definately fun.. and it's different. But, to make it all up, I kept all the 50CC electric equivalent stuff that used to be in the Pitts S12 I bought from Lmopar69... it passed away in spectacular fashion at SEFF 2010. So, I just made a deal with a friend of mine for a 87' Lanier Edge 540. Can't just have all these 10 and 12S lipo packs sitting around doing nothing... right?
