Default OT: Who's into R/C flying?

I fly gas but this is the first time I've seen someone fly in their basement.


Unreal indoor flying

I guess it was to windy out side

I'm just getting into RC planes. I got a small electric 3 channel Piper Cub Trainer
I few it twice and crashed it twice. Lets see if I can bring her home in one piece this weekend. Thank god for cheep trainer planes. It only cost me $16 if I break the fuselage. A complete plane with motor is $65. If I crash one a week it is still way cheaper than a hours worth of gas in the boat .

me an Packinair got into planes. lasted about 8 minuets. made a boat out of what was left after the first flight . . . we stick to ground based stuff these days


hey RonP did you know we have one of the premiere RC shows in the world here in toledo. i think it is coming up in the next month or so.

that vid clip is unreal. i wonder if that guy has good reflexes. never seen anything like that before.

That was amazing. I have been flying RC planes for along time. That blew me away. That guy has way too much time on his hands. Cool.

I used to do some RC flying before I started flying full-scale stuff. I've still got a couple gas RC planes in the basement, a Cessna 152 and a P-47 Thunderbolt, along with an 8-channel Futaba radio.
