Edited in April 2015,
enough courage gathered to admit my flying skills to the folks around here.

Try to change my reader only position to a semi active poster as of now also.


Alberta ended her temporary last flight back in June 2013 in an somewhat
High elevated STOL type of "landing"

Added November 2016:
Since I was asked many times in the past about my "Tree landing and rescue" technique , I thought I update my intended pictures only story with the "how to's".

Get some munchies

All it takes to perform a high elevated STOL is a total RC Newby like me, back then.
I was just overwhelmed by the beauty of this WWI model airplane when I started looking into this hobby. I had nobody close to me to ask for help or even some advise, I just searched the internet for some time.
So here I was trying to teach myself with a great but totally wrong plane for a beginner.
On that "temporary" last flight I was happy to finally getting her up in the air for a while on a hazy early morning. She went past me on a downwind leg and almost scooted out of sight. I managed to get her to turn back in a very wide turn heading alongside a far away...Continue Reading
