That's way too cool Kenny. Now all we need is a video downlink so we can have true RPV's. It'd be neat to pilot it from a video screen.

Hey guys, this is way off topic but I'm looking for a Herr Cherokee kit preferably NIB. I either find them at the off the wall online shops for $85.00 or the $49.95 places don't have them in stock. I just bought one off of EBay and it was lost in the mail. They refunded my money thankfully. Nobody sells Herr locally that I know of either. So does anybody have one they want to sell? I'd consider a Herr P-51 as well.

Joe,

Quantum Models has the Cherokee for $57.99

http://www2.mailordercentral.com/quantummodels/

Or, you could go to Sig's web site directly:

http://www.sigmfg.com

They have it directly from the factory for $89 or from their dealer network for $59.49.

IHTH,
Joe

Well get out your float planes guys. The Chandler bowl is going to be full of water by the end of the day. Rain Rain Go away.

Thanks Joe. I ended up ordering it here:
http://www.leisuretimehobbies.net/Planes/hrrk504.htm I can't believe how much trouble I've had getting my hands on one of these kits. All I can say is it had better damned well be worth it! From what I've read about them I'm sure it will be.

David: I'll be ready for Chandler lake very soon. I have a set of Herr floats on the way!

Joe,

If it is anything like the Herr Pitts, you will enjoy it. I enjoyed building mine. Unfortunately I followed some not so good advice and put way too big of an engine in it. It ended up too heavy to hand launch and the wheels were too small to fly from my club's grass field. It probably would have doen well off of pavement.

Joe,

I almost ordered the Pitts too. I'm absolutely sick of all of the 3D and generic looking planes available now. I want some nice general aviation kits. You know, something you might see when you drive by the airport or go to an airshow. I'm not the least bit interested in foam although I will break down and get the GWS C-130 when it's released and that's only because I worked on them in the Navy. I'll probably fiberglass it though and put four Astro 010's on it.

Just waiting to get my hands on it. I've got the motors.

How deep is the water in the bowl right now? All of the weather services show low wind and cool temps for tomorrow morning. I'm planning to fly. I hope there won't be any need to call in the Coast Guard for water rescues.
