I will not be embarrased but I have crashed over 50 planes in the past 4 years. I can fly though, but things just happen. IF 25 members send me $5bucks I can get a new JET

WIFE said the next time you can buy something expensive is when you get a JOB

Having a college degree at this point in time seems to be nothing
I've got a better idea. Send all the videos to Tom Bergeron and ask him to put them on America's Funniest Home Videos. Who knows? You might just win the $10,000 prize.

I would donate to your cause, but I know that you'd just go out and crash that one, too. Then it would be one more jet down the drain.

I'm sorry we're having a laugh at your expense. But it's just too obvious.
Your like that lovable goof on whatever sitcom.

But he seems to have a good sense of humor about it, and doesn't take himself too seriously. I like that, I don't either.

I suspect we've all had some "incidents", that if video'd and posted would be good for laughs!

Hey Sherlock - You have several "don't ask me how I know that" things to add to the thread!

ONE Member wants to give me $20 bucks




He does not want to disclose his name though, WOW I was surprised, the most I was expecting was like $5bucks. I am asking him to let me disclose his name so everyone would believe its true, WILL KEEP YOU ALL POSTED

I think if you started flying larger airplanes you might have more luck. Bigger flies better, easier to see as well. Lighter flies better as well, but it doesn't have to be featherweight either.

I wish I could recommend a big, middleweight jet that was ready to go without tons of mods. The Haoye F-18 sold by Kondor is a great flyer but as an edf it needs tons of mods to get there, new ducting, ply gear mounts, it's an expert level project. The 90mm F-18 foam arf from banana hobby is almost as big but needs lots of mods, the mechanical retracts are just too much of a pain, air retracts are the way to go. The kit version is a lot of money for what you get, but it's cheaper than a yellow aircraft F-18 but then that's a glass ship.

I bought the 46 class servo less retracts


Yea not sure what to do, My problem is I get bored fast, I want to go fast, if it does not go fast its not a challenge. I really enjoyed the funjets, but they are so small. That proedf f18 90mm seems sweet. It would be expensive project though , Is there a company that makes like really really large foam planes? I mean something like 100inch in length?

I suggest a flyfly. The mirag can be pretty quick, but your rightit would get expensive. If ya get that job than it's no problem tho.

Sherlock...
I'm willing to chip in a few bux for your cause, since you've given me so much entertainment in your persistent hand launching endeavors. I encourage others to help the poor guy out... Good luck and I want to see you actually get one up in the air;-)
