Jumping to the second and third rainbow are well established. It's all in there but historians differ in some interpretation. It's in the hands of the elders. BTW - that's you Dave... and the others know who they are.... secrets of the RVMdom.... the handshake and wave... I've said too much...

Mel... been saving my pennies for a GC in the Northwestern area they keep talking about....Hubs and I would like to find some canyons in the area to fly his machine over...might make for a nice trip... we went to Yellowstone in 2013 with friends and he flew around devils tower... that was a fun trip, so would be fun to find more areas to fly over and see things from a different perspective...

Evening Mutants !!!,

Welcome back Mel, Marty I can sure bet if you and Bob get out there, he would be able to take some incredible photos from aloft.

We have been having great weather here, in the 70's during the day but some have been pretty windy.

I have mutated to flight as well but, on a smaller scale, I still keep my feet on the ground but soar to new heights in this.

A Sport Cub, I had my first crash today but, it was repairable thankfully, and then two more good landings.

My goodness its so much work being retired and riding the rainbow to boot. We will be heading to Quartzsite for a week in a week and then on to Yuma ..... Yeeeee Haaaaa

Cheers !!!

The wingspan is 21" and there are guys that have put cameras on theirs and they fly them FPV using a set of goggles, its pretty amazing. One of the guys that flies out there had two head sets and allowed me to wear a set its really cool, but its very expensive, the cams run $100 and the goggles anywhere from $200 to $400.

I'll wait until I'm a better pilot ... lol ...

Cheers !!!

Hey Jeff!
I did U-control planes way back when. Always wanted a RC.
With the UC I could crash without any problems at all. Wanna see you fly yours!

I think RC planes are pretty easy as they basically only move forwards (haven't done one for real, just a true-to-life simulator). If you want a real challenge, get into RC heli's, they're definitely a lot harder. Even in the simulator I find heli's to be a lot harder than planes. The quad copters are a bit easier than two bladed heli's, but can still present challenges as unlike planes, heli's go in all directions if not controlled accurately.

I can fly a simulator and a real airplane. Maybe with the cam and goggles I could do RC. Something about "being there".

Someone say they need a pilot? Yep that's me at the controls, kind of like rainman " I'm an excellent pilot" . Only had one problem, when told to return to the airport, which sat at the end of the lake I was flying over, I flew the wrong way! Can you say 180 degree error!
