Cross Country Flying
I remember back around 1976 / 77, reading a magazine article about the crew that flew a Senior Falcon across the USA. Does anyone happen to have an online source that refers to the flight?
The idea of flying across the USA has been tickling my mind for a few weeks now, ever since driving across Wyoming on a trip. Boredom while driving tends to lead to all sorts of odd thoughts, like how would I attempt to cross the state with a model aircraft, what kind of model, what support would be needed, etc, etc, etc ..
Has it been done since '76?
Another thought: Why not make a contest out of it? Who can cross the USA first given a common starting date / time?
Eh ... just ramblings from someone suffering flying fever during the winter.
Still, would be nice to get more information about the '76 flight.

Since it has been done you will have to do it with Elec.plane. Wonder how many charges it would take, at least you will have something to do all summer,fall,winter and spring Better yet has to be done with a parkflyer you can pick what one you want.

there was also some guy that flew an rc heli a long ways, following in with, of all things, a full size heli.
how's about a sleek 100"+ 60mph glider with lots of camber adjustment? get it high and fly as ya drive...
