I have two planes to maiden, both been done for over a month, it's tough looking at them every day and not being able to fly them

That's why you always need to have an extra "new kit in box" on your shelf.

Download a free plan and start scratchbuilding!!!

You know that's a great idea. Any links to favorite plans from anyone??

I would love to do something like Artsloper's Buggati, Reed's Jart, and Steve's Rodent (...man there are so many great build threads here just in the slope area...I wish I could remember them all...) I'd also love to make one of those
old school (1930's, 40's, 50's...) scale gliders.

But, I find even thinking about starting a high calibur build of the above planes pretty intimidating (for me anyway). I keep telling myself I need more room to build and more supplies...more info...always more info

Anyone willing to share free plans that could possibly result in success for the beginning sloper with moderate skilz?

Free plans? Look no further than rcgroups!!! Check out this thread:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=301997&

Or check out one of those "Limit EX" threads. Seems to be a straightforward build, and the plane looks like fun! I know there are at least 3 recent threads for that plane.

If you feel ambitious, you can just get a 3-view, and build a PSS!!!

For me, I'm just going to finish my "started-but-never-finished" builds.

The way I see it, it is your fault that it has been raining so much! You should know that when you finish a new plane either the wind dies or it rains.

You know, they're laughing their behinds off at our whining in Minnesota and Massachusetts.

Just for the record.
