I have been interested in flying model airplanes since I was about 12 years old and have been at it off and on all these years. After having been away from it for about 20 years, I returned to find out I was like Rip Van Winkle waking up and so many things have changed. New computerized radio systems, lithium ion batteries, rare earth magnet electric motors makes it a whole new experience.
Reflexes and eyesight now is making it harder for me to keep track of smaller models so I am in the process of making one big, slow, and easy to see. This one should fit the bill! The wings are hot wire cut from styrofoam sheet as are most parts of the airframe. This will be my winter project!
It is never too late to have a happy childhood!
