No way! Are you already a member there? Whenever I want to get cheap parts for my Champ I am told I don't qualify for membership on their website. To qualify I have to order $200 of stuff at normal price and then I'll get a discount price.

And sorry about your plane. It's hard to argue with old timers and if you take into account they may not live much longer it's probably better to leave them be. Maybe they're grumpy because they're scared.

That's a bummer, nice bird turned to junk. So far, I'm staying away from the club fields and sticking to "park flyer's" and now I have a good reason to keep it that way. Unless I up-scale quite a bit, I just don't see myself at a place that needs traffic control. Best of luck getting her fixed and compensated for.

The field is not a 'club' field...just a place where a bunch of guys fly.

We are self-policing and so far it has worked very well, so the last thing I'm gonna do is set the place on fire and destroy the good natured fun and friendship we all have.

I'll just accept that that old bar-stid is a POS who failed to even utter, "Sorry."
Even if I was completely RIGHT I still would say sorry to a fellow flyer whose plane I just SHREDDED.

But I want to help preserve what we all have out there and not get into the structured club "taking turns" and rules BS. I'm just gonna stay clear of him from now on. He is a very nice guy who helps everyone --- especially newbs -- and I'm a "newer guy" myself -- having only arrived there in July.

Plus, I just found out he bought a 10-acre field about 2 miles from my house -- just in case we lose our current field to commercial construction. So he is an alright dude who just made a big mistake.

Good morning all.

Blu .. I feel for ya was not fun watching. To much plane for me but a sweet looking one that it is. Do not let her get you down


This was not the first time at the same field you had issues and deffently not the first damaged plane either. You always get them up flying like Ridgewalker and Jim

For rules at an open field will only cause problems and why we do not fly at a members only club. will be anyones guess

There are always two sides to the story.

Watching and trying to listen to the video is hard to decide who is right or wrong.

Mac, you are at one End, away from trouble. You were doing a circuit and in the midst of it CRASH?

How long in the circuit were you?

If you were one step ahead thinking your moves that crash would not have happened. I hear you saying I was that one step ahead.

But you were flying a cross and looking straight ahead and not forward. You did hear and did see but was to late to avoid

The flyer was 30 ft to your side thinking he was perfectly clear, calling out four! launch! whatever

He should have said next in line. And wait. And the flyer in air take note to say my flight is just started/ended

We call this curtasy (sp)

Since it is an open field that is the way the cookie crumbles

And to repair and mend things man to man. Would buy one or walk in with a few parts to help one another out, and not to say , SORRY or nothing at all.

Since we are not there we will only trust the word of op

For a group of members at the field I am sure you Mac walk in head held high four coffee in hand a dozen donuts talking shop

This is where you guys fly. Knowing all are addicted and just cannot take a days rest from rcgroups, or flying

Never am I insulting just sharing an opinion

Get her repaired as the T28 wings are to fragile for regluing

She is/was sweet till she met her maker. And that hurts, we all know

Big Jim. I P A S S on the go pro but the go pro II may be the better. gopro sound is awefull, pro II has a ext mic I hear.

I look into the kodak playfully duel hd108p60F coming out in feb 2012

I hear that cam will have a 26mm lens panaramac still, ext mic and some. It is a fixed focus cam for 200.00 since you have an iPhone this may be better then the go pro. Gopro is a cam for a sports person no vid screen no sound. Just video.


Yes I wait and not buy. Tom frank seems to be on it with sales commission and he is not a lab just anyone else out there pushing his personal time. I bet he has a bucket load of these cams for free lol

Since we know the hd1080 model is out since 2011, that 808KC is 15 fps and to hear the #11 will not get att'n is a crying shame

The #11 is the cam to get but the #16 will do fine. I could care less about stills and other stuff if it is suppose to record Video, the end. Enjoy it but remember one tests it's called, but observing a real test 1 meter. to a screen. is the test. to correct any video would be using a black white paper in increments.2k,4k up to 26k etc. Not a backyard plane etc flight. Funny how they have dead pixels. Being picky will cost ya. these tests are in a cam under a hidden file that runs for hours called engineer test.

Enough said thought I drop in see what was up and say my peace

I am looking into the mini cub but not to swap out for a dsm2. If I have to I will. I as well looked at the mini dragon 300 only at banana. Hobby for parts and stuff.

I think my Super cub is to big to fly at the park. If at the park I fly at home It is Harder to fly at the confined quarters Why I preferred the mini super cub due to its size

Any suggestions

Winter is treating well and playing safe then sorry

Happy flying welcome all noobs and others I missed thank you

Thanks Fishy for your condolence. I think your field is plenty big for the Super Cub. I would fly any of my big planes there. Just fly it and you'll grow into it.

I loved the colours of the Plane, and would have loved to see a Blue Scheme' for you.

I remembered walking into the LHS in Wallingford CT, on the shelf the Ggs model, 50 plus inch wingspan.

I fell in love by the looks of it, staring at it for 5 minutes, WOW, And seeing your flight and the crash, saying not good. Flying over grass, would you think the plane would have suffered the same or less damage? I do not like pavement at all when flying, and know even when cold weather, the ground is just as bad.

With me at the Local field, thefield is long enough 1000 feet, but the width is short, guessing that I must not stand in thecenter, but further down the field, Since we know wind changes my direction changes.

It is like Mac being comfortably down the field, away from everybody.

For me I must be away and clear I chose not to fly when others are present that I may need to land abrubtly.

Why I loved the field in CT double the width.

yes ishall again get used to it, guess that is the problem being away so long from Home?
