    Pretty much settled on helicopters for the past few years, but I was flying giant scale aerobatics before that. Kind of thinking about switching back lately. I added some pics to my gallery.

    I too flew glow engined planes almost 20 years ago in FL. The club members were plenty helpful but is was a pain driving a long way to the field and the politics of the county and keeping the field were taking a huge amount of time. I have gotten the bug again with the little electric park flyers. I am going to get a Hobbyzone champ to get my hand back in. I can fly it in the side yard of the condo, right out my front door!

    love them. Im hoping for a chinook for my Bday. I like the ones from thinkgeek.com. very good little heli's. I have some airhogs from walmart that are ok to learn on.
    want a honybee heli. want. in the long run they are cheeper than pets if you get a battery charger.

    Here's my Heli/Plane radio first with custom tray


    and my Car/Truck radio with Ghetto home made tray

    Both have stick extensions made from Axial Crawler suspension links

    Here are some tools I have found help tremendously Self adjusting Vise Grips

    I am C6 no hand function and can do it all myself with patience.
    An easy fix for some may be these

    Hey Andy
    How goes the flying? I haven't been keeping up to reach my 1000 flight goal for the season. Just Logged fight 184 the other day.
    Do you need another 500 size A-Star Fuse with 3 Blade head and scale blades?
    Give you a good deal.
    PM if you are interested.
