As a courtesy to some who asked a few weeks ago, I am posting to remind you that the local R/C Club (QCRCC) will be having a public (free) display at the Regency Square Mall this Saturday, February 2, from 11 am till 4 pm, center court. There should be some really nice models on display so come by and take a look, I would like to meet you and share in this great hobby.

Hillary in 2016?  Why not?  We've already had one "girly man" serving in office for the past 7 years, we might as well give her chance as well!

Thanks for the comments. Yes, that jet is mine. Actually that is a jet built from foam with small electric fan units in it. Not that large, compared to some of the others I have, which will be on display.
Unfortunately we will not be flying the planes at the mall, not enough space and too much liability, however we will have some small indoor helicopters which we will be demonstrating.
Hopefully as soon as the weather gets better you can come out to our local club site, any Sunday that is warm and the wind is not blowing too hard, and see us fly. Last Sunday was really nice and we had almost 15 pilots out there and lots of guests.
I have been involved in this hobby for over 20 years, and I love it. I have flown all types of planes and have seen the technology progress to a point where it is more affordable than ever and easier for someone to get in the air.
Hope to see you at the mall.

I hope the one you flew on earthmomma was not made of balsa wood and styrofoam.... Wink
This one weighs only about 20 pounds and is really light for the size aircraft. Itis powered with tow microturbines burning Jet A fuel. It has retractable landing gear and flaps, as well as a small computer on board to make me "look better" in the air (it smooths out my manuevers and keeps things straight)...we call that cheating but the older I get I feel like I deserve ever little help I can get...haha
Not a 787, but an Airbus 321. Carries a little over 1/2 gallon and will fly for about 9 minutes.

They make WWI planes, they are more difficult to fly than the more "modern" aircraft, but the governing body which provides insurance for liabilities (AMA) prevents you from putting anything like a real gun or missile on a plane like this. They do however make some laser systems where you can dogfight, but as a cheaper variant we sometimes tie a crepe paper streamer to them and chase one another trying to cut the other's tail. Harder than it sounds.....
Look forward to meeting some of you.

It would be loud also. It was going to be a electric rc race. They do have races at Hobby Town in the parking lot next to Bojangles. The next one will be Feb 10th I think. Those little cars are fast.
I came by your display today. I was impressed. My wife would not let me get near it.

She has always been a hobby widow and remembers when I was obsessed with RC planes.

I laughed at a post on the forum recently when some lady talked about changing price tags with a marker before she got home. I have been guilty of that myself many times. You guys have a lot of fun…I remember.

Great hobby.
