I am back at it. This time I am looking to revive some old sailplanes and build an old kit. I have a 60" Son Of Savage that was one of my favorite slope planes. I also have an old Wanderer and two kits. One Gentle Lady and one of my all time favorite slope/thermal planes a Bridi Tercel. I have an electrified Kelly and bought and built a Spin DLG, but never flew the Spin DLG. The servos links are not done well enough to fly correctly. Need to fix this plane as well.
I do not have a lot of time for building so I am also looking to purchase a Speedo from Aloft Hobbies. Although this requires some building as well.
I am still flying the heli's off and on. I have enjoyed flying my MCPx and MCPx2 the most.
I have flown the EXI 450 through only four batteries, but she is flying well. I replaced the feathering shaft and main shaft. I also replaced the main gear set. All with Align parts. I bought more of the Fiberglass Blades from EXI. At about $4 a set you can't beat it for what I am doing.
Moving it around a bit more. Doing some forward flight and trying to do some figure 8's.
I am really impressed with the EXI Kit especially for the price. The 2nd one will get better components.
Bought an EXI 450 SE Carbon kit with case. Great kit for the price. After a few headaches I finally got it flying only to crash it while test flying. I set the Pitch curve as if it was a throttle curve. Big mistake. Getting another kit and hopefully fixing this one.
Good thing I bought a clone for cheap.
I have been flying the 250 and getting a little better. Need more heli's and more flight time.

As usual I am off and on with RC. Never leave all the way. After flying helis (if that is what you want to call it) about 5 years ago I went to cars and trucks. Figured they would be cheaper when I crashed them.
Bought an MSR after a friend told me he loved his MCX (thanks Mike). The MSR is so much fun. Amazing such a little heli can fly so well. It got me hooked on heli's again. Went and got a Trex 250 se Super Combo. Loving it and having fun, but not comfortable just yet. Really haven't flown it much. Looking to get a 450 clone. Cheaper and not as freaked to crash.
I have been trying to sell some of the stuff in my RC garage pile to get some cash for the RC heli addiction. My son is now becoming an rc heli addict. We are also enjoying flying some planes.
I will eventually post pictures of my old heli's and the new ones. Joker's, Raptor 50 (converted to electric), Logo 10 Extreme, Hornets, and Eco8.
Getting back into slope flying. Have an old 60 SOS I want to restore. NIB Tercel and Gentle Lady. I also have an old Wanderer.
