My grandson Cade has been flying the PAU Edge 36% scale on the simulator. He like doing inside loops, scrapping the ground, and knocking off the landing gear. He thinks that is fun

I looked at 3 or 4 and this is going to be the one for me. I am happy with the field. I can get a model plane in and out of there easily. When I have things ready to fly I will give them money for membership. I will then ease into it and see what the culture is like.

1982 R/C Flying Atlanta


Here is a link to the spot of my first R/C solo. Thirty seven years ago it was undeveloped hard packed dirt.

Was flying a Sr. Falcon.

That falcon looks so cool. And flying field looks real nice too. Hard dirt seems like it would do OK. My runway is pretty complete and I extended it like 10 more feet, it's pretty long now. I think I'm going to just send it, and fly my plane good or bad soon.

Well that was my attitude also way back in 1982. I think it was an act of God that my instructor happened alone. Thinking back I would have never made it without him. You are lucky in that you have stuff to crash in that will minimize damage. Without an instructor, keeping the plane close is going to be a difficulty for you. Knowing which way it is going or whether it is right-side up or up-side down will haunt you also. I would put my name, address, phone number, email etc on the inside of the plane. A note card would work fine or any old piece of paper.

The hard dirt worked fine because it was a large area. In the beginning there is no way you are going to hit a runway.

OK my instructor said to put info on plane to I will tomorrow or soon. I know it will be difficult but I am in with little money and don't want to bother my mom to take me to field again. Thanks for advice though
