Well it's been one year now that I have been in the RC hobby. I joined the AMA and rcgroups one year ago and did my first flight on 2-11-11. It all started with my 1/4 scale J-3 Cub. from there it went nuts ,trainers, SPAD combat planes, 3-D fomies. In the last year my hanger has changed a lot, I even had to make racks to keep everything in order. This past year I have built and flown many different planes, the SPAD's or coro-planes were a blast, I really like flying combat. The 3-D fomies are fun too.
As I look back on the year, I have been quite busy, not only learning to fly but getting involved it my club, as I took over the Web Master and news letter for the club it has been a chalange as I have Dislexea as you might have guess by now. you can view here
Who knows where the next year will take me. I do plan on trying my hand at some IMAC flying, as I picked up a 30% Edge 540 and am installing a DLA56cc. in it, and I might take my big Cub to a Scale Masters event as well. I love the events our club puts on, so you know I will be at all of those as well.
You can read all my stuff on my blog. Untill my next post Fly safe and have Fun. Happy Newyear...

Well Christmas is here so I decided to make my twin grandson's their own plane. with that in mind, a guy at our club hosted a build in his shop, he pre ordered all the parts and supplys we needed. We built 32" foam planes they have 2cell lipos with a 12am speed controler running a 1500. Got to admit the things are a blast to build and fly. of course I had to have one too. after I was done I noticed I put the strips on backwards oh well...
I think we will still like em.

Well after some research I discovered that the 3w 24i engine was not going to be big enough for the 30% Edge I am working on, so I got a DLA 56cc. for it. Now I know I will have plenty of power for this beast... Can't waite to get it all together. I plane on installing the 3W 24i in a 90 size Cap.
