Lucky you! This really is a good time to be down there. Spent 12 years in Tampa area and it's hard to beat "fall" down there. Up here, it's just getting windy.

STILL. WAITING. FOR. PARTS

Went to the club just to hang out a bit. And one of them had a rc CAR. What the hell? What did he bring a car for? GHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Sorry, I'm in a messed up mood from not flying for 5 days

The T-28 and the Christen Eagle in the picture. I had to do a lot of work to them to bring them up to spec, but they're good to go now. The beechcraft has new servos and a smoke system added.

man that really stinks- what parts exactly are you looking for?? You might do better with a wanted ad here. I got a new airframe for my GeeBee much faster that way. Cheaper too!

Man, that is one good looking flock o birds there! Who makes the t28? Or is that a T34? Whats the one on the end? I love seeing other pilots planes!

Grazer - if you are itching - have you looked at the new PZ Corsair that was just released? They also just started shipping the UM spitfires. And the 3D sbach is coming next month. I am gonna go broke well before Christmas

I have most of the PZ warbirds, not a Corsair though. I'm not too keen on the UMX stuff.
I do have an Eflite Mystique on order and a Durafly Dynamic-S on its way to me. I have the appetite for a larger electric powered warbird in balsa.

Headed to the Fredericksburg field in the morning to deliver a H9 DVII to it's new owner, again. Can't believe I was able to get it and the big Corsair in the back of the Subaru.

I'd meet you there if you can get me out of school

I could probably get away with it without any issues lol
Just JROTC, english, Independent Study (AKA planes/quadcopters), and German...

I'll be there on saturday if the weather holds out.

Fortunately the T-28 is the only 1 that has not been severely injured..lol I took the new Champ out and kinda ran it into a net at the ball field causing it to come down on the tail. I have the new tail just havent put it on it. Granted it's completely functional but I want to keep her in pristine condition. Now that I know how to fly a little bit more...lol

Well, SOME of the parts came: the tail set for the ember 2 and the extra batteries. But the Ember 2 still needs its new gearbox, and the T28 is still waiting for the new Fuse. So, still no flying:
