New Soaring Society.... A.S.S.


Hey guys,
My bud Dustin and I are working here on a FOB in Afghanistan, supporting an ARMY UAV system. We were dinkin' around yesterday with the Fun Cub and and it made us think of how cool it would be to start an RC aero group for all the guys here, for the purpose of teaching both power and sailplane flight (Afghanistan Soaring Society). So were looking for help. We're looking for stuff that's not going to get used at home anymore, neglected/broken/repairable gliders (floaters, crunchies and epp) and usable radio's (older unused stuff) to aero-tow with. We'll be more than happy to cover any shipping charges. If all you have is a pile of covering scraps, balsa sticks & sheet, abottle of PU glue, or Henrys glass we'd love that two. The younger kids around here want to be able to fly R/C but are constantly strapped on the $$$ front(ARMY). If you happen to have a floater with a full 1 piece wing, just carefully cut it on the center and we'll re-assemble it here. We will set up a thread in the Forum and post pics and updates for everyone to see and make comments on.-Guy & Dustin

Well... seems that a group of Texans will be looking hard at you guys for infringement... The Armadillo Saoring Society may not look too smilingly at your infringement upon their already-established A. S. S. designation...

Aw... heck... Army guys...?... OK... go ahead!...

I have a 4 channel JR FM radio that is yours if it will help. Channel 31, but I don't have any RXs, if nothing else might work as a buddybox.

I haven't gotten kicked out of anywhere, but I've gotten some strange looks, and I do wear it quite often

I'm not sure, but I'll try to find out. If so, I have some receivers, but I don't think I have any crystals on that channel.
