This came in the other day:



I laid it out, and built a holder for it. It's going to drive me crazy waiting for everything to come it. I will start doing as much as I can until servos, motor, ESC, and super cubby landing gear get in.

I like the color scheme.

Yup, hobbyking 1600mm clipped wing. $50 plus shipping from the US warehouse.Can't be beat. A tip, they only add $5 for an additional plane, so might as well stock up when ordering.

The landing gear sucks, so I ordered the gear from the eflite super cub for it. Should be suitable. I will also be putting bigger tires, but probably not the balloon tires from my 182.

I have a beater XP Dell but the power supply and USB are shot, so I'd rather invest in something that will work with what I have and they are macs.
FlightGear runs on Macs, with the Mac OS download. Get the 2.4 version..http://www.flightgear.org/download/main-program/


And yes it's a full size aircraft simulator, but they have a Sig Rascal 110 and an RC glider in their download pages. Just don't fly online at KSFO as everyone flys there and the frame rates and lags are terrible. Livermore or San Jose are better for online.

The intrest has been sparked to get started on a new project...
I've got an ARC version of the World Models Midget Mustang, 60 size, NIB, in my collection.
This past week, I wound up with a couple extra YS 110's...

What sparked the sudden intrest?

I convinced myself that Aerofly is worth the investment and now, of course, I can't find a single place that sells or stocks it!! Story of my life. Tower Hobbies says it's discontinued which makes me wonder if it is even worth it to buy it directly from Ikarus.

Web referral please

I think I'm going to invest the time to learn how to properly fly RC planes. Get the AMA card etc and join a club with a field. Please recommend a good RC website to use as a resource. Something like Adv Rider, with people who are (mostly) serious adults willing to help one another.

I did a quick Google search and there are dozens of sites but I'm a lazy ass in the sense that I don't want to have to spend days monitoring each to see which ones are helpful versus those populated by 10 year olds. Not that there aren't knowledgeable 10 year olds! You know what I mean. Please shorten the learning curve to finding a good resource.

Thanks
Bob

Took out the Texan today. First time flying with my new Spektrum DX6i. I used an orange RX that I bought off Amazon since I couldn't wait for the ones for HK to come in. It was $20 on amazon with free 2 day air with my prime membership. I was pleased that I got a range test of approx. 75 paces. The manual with the TX says that it needs at least 30 paces. I was very impressed with that.

I am much happier with my DX6i than I was with that flysky/turnigy radio. I flew with it the other day to test it before I put it up for sale. I am convinced that my problems I was having with it earlier were from not using D/R or expo on the Texan, and aileron separation on my Cessna. Not the radio iteself. I placed it on ebay and the current bid is higher than I paid for the radio. Go figure.
