Roger that Roger, I have no camera, but I have 11 FFF planes set up with electronics, ready to fly. Nice picture of your fleet. The only cure to this disease is another bundle of FFF. Good Luck!

Pretty cool looking planes there, Roger. I should do more with FFF, I normally use EPS.

"Hi, name is Mike, and I too have Dow Syndrome"

I caught it with my first bundle of FFF...after using SB for over a year....

I don't think there is any cure...at least as I can see in the near future....

I just hope I can "support my habbit" and Dow doesn't stop making FFF...I don't know where I would go to get a "fix" if that happened.

Roger...nice looking fleet....looks like you really like pushers...

Hi MIKE,
Yep, pushers are great. My fleet is pretty equal between pushers and tractors
I also have a GWS Spitfire, Great Planes Sportster, and an Oldtimer QUAKER on E power

MAidened the canard delta in the pic last night and had cg and throw issues.
Flew nice after some minor adjustments about 40mph, very fast roll rate, but loops are lopsided.
No unlimited vert here, needs more power than the 75 watt GBX motor I'm running

I've been sick for some time now. It seems everytime I run out of the BLU, one of my flying buddies brings another bundle by and re-infects me. Here is a shot of what I have laying on my benches. I did not get the ones down that I have hanging on the walls.

I suffer from OCS (Owens Corning Syndrome - the pink FFF). Sometimes I wonder if I'm normal . . . then realize I'm not . . . and really don't have a prollem with it.

Let's go flyin!

I have to say I got infected by Vyceroy, we didn't share sodas or anything like that, all it took was a hand shake. And here I am not flying but I keep building...

Tow man, did you ever hear back from our English friends?

@Roger: Do you have plans for that one in the front-center of your first pic? The one that looks somewhat like a Concorde... You've got a cool assortment of those pusher type designs!

Also, do you all think there is one general motor that is most useful for the kind of planes pictured? I'm hoping to be able just buy 5 or 6 "cheap" motors so I can have them for when I get going on my FFF addiction (got my first bundle on Saturday). I'm working on some GBv motors, but using the ESC with that makes it "not cheap" so I'm thinking there is some kind of more affordable brushed (most likely) motor you all are using in these things that don't break the bank when paired with an ESC...

Thanks,
Mike
