GWS DC-3 "De-commisioned"
Well I new I had to do it sometime. This weekend I pulled all of the electronics (except motors) out of my GWS DC-3 (see below for pix). The GWS DC-3 is an OK flyer, but the small wheels are just a problem on a grass field. I was constantly messing up take-offs and landings on it. The airframe is still in pretty good shape. Perhaps I can find it a home.
I just need the servos for new planes. I will also probably re-use the receiver.
I'm mostly using my Spektrum 2.4Ghz radio now, but I do still use my 72Mhz Futaba radio for some planes (Fokker D-VII). I think I'll use these to build up some more 'park' size planes that I can goof around with in the local parks.
Even though I've become a bit of a balsa snob, I will still fly foamies ... especially when I want to build something myself from fanfold or depron and bash it around.
