    I just love my Cherokee and probably going to get another one in the spring. My current one is too nice for regular flying duty after the repaint, so I will get a second one that I don't mind transporting, flying, and handling. Growing up around Cherokees, Warriors, and Arrows, the E-Flite Cherokee is a must-have plane for me and probably the plane I enjoy flying the most out of everything in my hanger.

      I got my decal kit from Callie for my Cherokee. Doing some touch up on the paint, then will add the final touches.

        Our family had access to our aero club planes as my dad retired from the USAF and instructed part time with the group. We took trips across country in a Cherokee 180 and the next year an Arrow III.! Big shit for a young teen in the 70’s, so yeah - I am a Piper fan for life and just lucky enough to represent the current product line as an Instructor. Super lucky I even get to fly those planes regularly...I lost count of how many variants of 5 basic models.

            That is nicer than the ones I learned in, but I think at last audit I had around 2000 hours in those birds Click image for larger version

              My first flight was in an Arrow when I was 3 years old, and spent most of my childhood flying around in my grandfather's 1978 and then his 1994 Arrow. My dad flew a Warrior and my uncle had a Cherokee 140. Being around PA28's was just normal when I was a kid. I logged a few hours in a Tomahawk, but didn't continue with getting my license. Starting building cars instead. Once I get done with my master's degree, I am hoping to get back into flying again. Until then, it the E-Flite Cherokee and Parkzone Archers. My grandfather passed away a few years ago and sold his Arrow the year before he passed away. The new owner keeps the plane in the same hanger and I have been able to fly in it a few times. I designed the paint scheme for it when I was in middle school and it still looks good today.

                We only recently aquired the Cherokee. Most of my time was in the 7AC and J3, few hours in a 7EC and Decathlon.

ID:	171842 A club member got good video of the maiden. Up and down with only some light trimming both vertically and lateral. In fact I only flew the other 2 planes once before the noon winds rolled in. Soon as I get the video I will get ya the linky.
                  what a fun flier and The assembly /set up went perfect. Used a 3S 2600 mAh, 4 - 6 minute flights and each battery still had 50% charge. While my first nose gear plane all 3 soft touchdown and rollout with nose up.
                  Got her home a applied the Minwax Clear gloss Polycryllic. She is sharp now!

                      She flew great at 50% and SAFE on it is hands off and low rates. I think I flew like that for about a minute, then switched to high rates for another minute, then turn SAFE off. Flies about like the T-6. Put flaps at one notch and reduced power to 1/4 and it just settled into a nice approach attitude and speed.
