Yippee!

What should I get for my first plane, Zagi or Slow Stick??


The subject line is of course a little insider joke for the R/C Groups veterans I'm just popping in to say "Hello!" I've been away far too long. Several distractions kept me away from here and from building/ flying in general, but thankfully things are easing and I've been able to hit the air again. I'm still loving the Attitude, it's usually the one I grab when I can squeeze in a flight or 2. The 010 Mini Speedwing has also been a good one for the winter, doesn't seem to care a whit if there's any wind or some water on the ground. Flying has generally been infrequent due to a lousy schedule and rainy/ windy conditions.

I've got a couple of projects that I'm resuming, the little Aerojet freeflight conversion has been sitting for months as has the Dare Fokker.

Anyway, hope everyone is well!

The title definitely got my attention; I figured it had to be some sort of joke after noticing the poster .


Hope you find time to relax, in addition to meeting your other commitments .

The slow stick will be far more forgiving and is a better trainer for a first timer... hehe, j/k. Good to see you back again, wondered where you'd gotten off to.

Definitely a Zagi!

And you know what would be really cool... cover it with a Texas state flag scheme.

Welcome back Tres!

Glad to hear you were getting some stick time even though you weren't posting here very often. If I were you I'd go for the SA Groove!

Tres,

You should have posted:

"Which Astro 010 brushless should I buy?"

LOL! Thanks guys, it's good to be back around a bunch of nutcases (like me )

Wayne, good memory! I sold that one to a local and he beat the crud out of it learning to fly. He ended up recovering it and gave it to his son for him to beat the crud out of learning to fly I was a bit disappointed when I heard as it had a great covering scheme on it. Oh well, the MSW is still flying the Texas colors at least

Thomer, any recommendations?

I'll let ya'll in on a secret, another reason I've been drawn from flying is my Harley now has a stablemate Bonus to whoever can guess what it is. The award is... um... my undying admiration

It's a Buell of some sort. I think. Maybe. Belt is on the other side, but that exhaust layout and instrument cluster is pure Buell.

Mmmm.... torque....
