Hi all,

I don't have a lot of experience with blogs, but hey, why not try something different. I am very happy to finally be able to pursue my favourite hobby, I love building and flying RC airplanes. I have other hobbies, but most don't get me this excited. I am starting by building an RCM basic trainer. There are a few reasons for this, I haven't flown for a while so I thought this airplane would fly in a trainer like fashion to help me get my skills back. My girlfriend has also expressed an interest in learning to fly so I thought she could use this airplane too. I also have a RCM Sportster to build, mostly because I like the look of it, and thought it would be a fun airplane to fly.

I decided after much deliberation to go with glow engines for power, I might regret this later, but I really enjoyed running them and tuning them and always thought they were as much about the hobby as building and flying.

Anyways, I do see both sides, I even have a few electrics.

Otherwise, I have a Sig AstroHog that is mostly complete, just some final assembly and covering and I was really excited about it, but I'm not so sure now. I have been looking as some kits and would really like a biplane of some sort, and maybe use a gas engine instead of the .60 glow. I'm going to finish it and fly it but I might not keep it too long.

Well, I thing that's enough rambling for now,
