I wont be flying any of the expensive newer warbirds anytime soon. Going to practice on the Apprentice and Timber before I tackle the tail dragging warbirds. Practicing with the PZ P-51 and PZ F4F Wildcat, both hand launching and belly landers.

Using a recently purchased Spectrum DX9 radio.

Enjoying the hobby. Sticking with foam as I can repair if/when I crash..........

Practicing everyday with my RealFlight 9 sim on a 32 in curved screen.

Thank you for stopping by.
