No, we have to sell this house first. Everyone that has looked at it so far has made an offer. They haven't offered enough yet. My wife and I have our hopes up high but the housing market is really really down. Buyers will buy if you give it to them but the right one will come along.

I've had two people to contact me that's building a Legacy in the last three days. That's kool. I noticed that a lot of people have been looking at and/or downloading the plans but no one has been posting. In fact the thread has closed but it can be reopened.

You're doing good Bluefish. Flying like a pro for sure. Looks like that Chubby fly's great. I'm glad you can land it now and everything. Great plane to learn with.

Maybe you can post more videos.

I'll try to get the time to start on some plans soon for the Chubby. I'll get you to help with the details.

Thanks for the update and posting the vid.

Big day this Saturday. First we'll start out with breakfast at the nearby restaurant and then to the fight field to fly our models. One of the guy's has a new P-40 he'll maiden and I'll maiden a new one I've built.

Then it's down to Jim's house, also near my house, to see his Railroad layout. I've been a member of the Piedmont Garden Railroaders for three or four years but I don't have a layout yet. Bunch of great folks. Look at all the work he has put in his layout.....
Jim's Layout Walk around 7,23,2011 (2 min 36 sec)

Around the layout at Jims (12 min 3 sec)


Then after lunch Triple Tree is having a full scale fly-in (Thu - Sun) and my son wants to fly down there. http://www.tripletreeflyin.com/

That night I've been invited to a Bluegrass concert because an old buddy of mine will be playing in da band. I'll take da wife to that one.

Full fun Saturday. Come and join me!!!

What am I going to do Sunday? Rest!

Thanks for the words of confidents!
Wow thats some train setup!!
Your planes have saved me so much money and are great to learn with.
I think the tail could be abit larger on the Chubby.
I started a new build, with your fuse design. I really don't know what to call it.
The tail is larger and the wing is a low version, I'm not sure how it will fly or if I can fly it without crashing, but we'll see.
Still going (2 min 36 sec)

Wow! I like your "Bluefish" design. The name kinda fits the model. I hope it fly's as good as it looks. I can't wait to hear your maiden report and see the video.

Thanks for the "Still going" video. It's always fun to see your planes fly. Keep the post coming.

Got it all in except the fly-in. My son had to work and I didn't want to fly down alone. Finished and got home about 10:30pm but what a fun day. The weather was perrrrfect.

I finally got a chance to maiden, Brian my cam man dropped the "F" bomb when the cam would lose foucs. I cut it out but I had to split the video.
The plane flew great! Very stable flight but not arobatic, the alirons could be larger.
My landing was abit rough but no damage.
