  • Hello 1st post!

    Just wanted my first post to be an introduction. Been into RC aircraft and RC in general for over 20 years, but just now coming back to planes after a hiatus from flying helis. I already have an Avanti 80mm and enjoy reading the "Official" build threads of the Jet EDFS as that seems to be what Im getting into. Thanks for having the forum available, a lot of good information on here!

      DP, A very hearty Welcome to "The Squawk". Seems as though you have a renewed enthusiasm. Great info here and even better folks, if that's possible. Glad you're here, sir. Best, LB

                  Yes, The Fly, Crash, Spend Money, Repair, Set all back up again ( I like to call that process work bench or bench flying), Fly again and Repeat is quite familiar. For those of you that remember Heliproz before Amain bought the domain, I was on a first name basis with a few of those guys! Even though I have a love for the two bladed hobby, its waayyyyyy too time consuming now when you have little ones that want your time. I'm in love with these PNP aircraft because I can build, setup, bench fly and maiden in a weekend! I think that's an amazing feat!

                  I used to kinda balk at foamy airplanes until I found Motion RC and purchased two, yes two, Avanti. They look great, they fly great, and we have parts available, and they are not 3k like their composite brothern! Whats not to like?!

                  And Alpha, are there any plans for maybe some 105mm or 120mm edfs? A 50 to 55 inch, 105mm 8s or 10s BAE Hawk with that black and British flag paint scheme would be the bomb diggidy! I know it would be in the 800 to 1k price range, but thats still a LOT cheaper than a composite... Just sayin!

                  Anyways, its only my second post, don't wanna ruffle any feathers comin in here saying "Hey,, what you need to do is!!!!"

                  Thank You for the warm welcome gentlemen............... Now its time to get back to putting some JP brakes on one of my Avanti!
