Thought id start a blog.
I had done some cliff sailplane flying some 15 years ago. So 4-5 years ago. I bought a parkzone Corsair which i crashed right off. Then joined a club and bought a parkzone t-28 and learned to fly. No safe technology, just a simulator and some buddy box flying.

2nd plane, another corsair. 1st it was painted dark blue. After a crash I repainted it in the light grey, white and blue of the later versions.

All foamys but now moving into balsa

Ill post photos when i can. But if interested, you can click on My Attachments and view what ive posted.

Note: these past few years, i've crashed so many times that ive gotten good at repairing foamys! 1/2-1 hr i can reglue, touch up and paint a foamy back to flight ready. Sometimes so good that you can hardly tell where it broke. Im not so sure that i should be proud of that! Ha!
