In this, the first of several "FRIDAY FLASHBACKS" on my YouTube channel, I'm featuring videos that for whatever reason, never got uploaded. Sometimes they're long forgotten on some crowded hard drive, and sometimes life just gets in the way...

With some free time as of late, I've gone through several storage drives, and have found some REAL GEMS !

First up is a rarely seen, gorgeous model of a de Havilland D.H.86 Express by master modeler Dan Johnson :
de Havilland DH-86 Express by Dan Johnson - FRIDAY FLASHBACK! St George Utah, 2016 (5 min 8 sec)

Brent Hecht's classic old SIG Kadet powered by an old O.S. FS-52 out a Rabbit dry lake :
SIG Kadet LT-40 with O.S. FS-52 4 stroke engine - Is this the BEST RC trainer of all time? (3 min 19 sec)

I was given this plane by a local hobby shop who in turn was given it by a widow who had no idea what to do with it. I gave it to Brent who then recovered the fuse (it was in pretty bad shape), but kept the original skin on the wing and tail surfaces as it really tells the story of the plane, with the original SIG markings on the tail, and the mHz frequency on the main wing!

Question: is the SIG Kadet the greatest RC trainer of all time

Let me know what you think...
