that's what nearly happened to me. I still can't believe i ever got it done being 13 years old at the time. I can say I'm proud to have done it once. But I don't think i'll ever do it again.

what really sucks is when it crashes. All that work down the drain. Stupid O.S 25 glow motor. It had run great for nearly two years. Then one day out of no where, stupid dead stick immediately after take off leading to a tip stall and wham! That's when i got into ARFs

You to your "My RCGroups" and there should be a listing of your active points at the bottom of the page.

No listing= no active points= no worry.

Does anyone buy an actual kit anymore? I think Top Flight still makes a few from what I see on the Tower Hobbies catalog. But they are becoming increasingly rare. Almost everything is an ARF these days. Even the high end 3D stuff.
The last "real" kit I bought wat the Top Flight 60" P-51B... I have bought 2 House of Balsa kits, they are ok, but they could have been done a little better.

Since I started making ARF type kits, well more work than the ARFs you used to I gave up buying the products of others, I was just about ready to buy a P-51 from Blitz but I decided not to after hearing from the guys and reading the reviews... I am tenpted to have them remove RCWorks from the name because of the quality concerns and I do not want the confusion with my own products.

I am looking at breaking out of foam next year in to some molded composites and maybe later on some wood, I just don't see the market for wood like there once was. That's sad.

I love my foamies too. I have a few kits from DW Foamies and they are simply superb.

I think it would be very interesting to get the entire LTUP gang together to meet face to face.

God. I hope not. I think it's ridiculous that he's suspended.

I do Denver..there's nothing much out there in ARFland that appeals to me. I liked some of the funky stuff that Hobby Lobby used to import, but alas, they carry the Same Old Stuff now, as does everybody else.
You want someting different,(old timer, odd scale, glow powered combat) ya have to build.

HE isnt suspended, I think he finally realized the actual value of the content of his posts were valued not as much as some.

Agreed - it'd be good to put a face (and character) to our Nemesis!
