It's reached the East Coast. I saw that same hazy-yet-blinding sunset Monday evening.

sure thing, just going to have to wait until i win the lottery or strike it rich in the stock market or something.

could be my imagination but i think the air quality has gotten a little better here. my truck is no longer covered in ash when i leave work(although there's still some on it in the morning when i leave home).

I think they are going for a tongue in cheek title that isn't meant to be taken seriously....an inside joke to the original posters of the threads deleted. (never-mind - posted then saw the OP's response)

On a less serious note Billy/Dave - I recently got a sport cub s2 and started flying........been having a blast so far with minimal repairs up until I accidentally closed the rear hatch door on the tail end of the plane crushing the back half of the fuselage and tail. Mended as best that I can it probably needs new parts which will add up to about $75 bucks.....so the question would be I think I would like to get a UMX turbo timber next since the cost to upgrade is better spent then repairing what I have but my concern is are they decent trainers for those with some flight experience?

no idea. I tried small plane like that maybe 6 or 7 years ago but it was too windy in my area for something that small.

Daveís got far more experience flying. The VTOL is the only thing Iíve ever been able to fly.

It would be easier to buy a house with a large barn and build my own private 1/10 track. And far cheaper.

I say get a Habu STS, no exposed propeller to destroy your hand when learning. I think all the foam on airplane is maybe $100 when added together, but it's much bigger than the micro airplanes. I think wings cost me $30 to replace.

with airplanes not really much. I only had a couple batteries on my propeller trainer, but i have been trying to get out and fly EDF whenever possible so I'm learning quick

The turbo timber is a great plane, UMX or full size. If your space is limited and you don't have a lot of high winds, go UMX. if you have more space I'd get the full size. I'm no expert, but it my opinion, I'd stay away from anything edf until your 3rd or 4th plane, but Dave seems to be doing very well with his.

the new airplane is geared for first timers and has wing profile to help with low speed flying. One of the main reasons i recommend that is because it comes with realflight and a dongle for using controller comes with it and it was specifically marketed to beginners.

I have no idea why I'm recommending it though, i dislike horizon hobby lol.

If i didn't have easy access to rural area i would probably only be able to fly airplane of this size at airfield, and you need license for that.

Yeah i am trying to avoid air field clubs, insurance, licenses and stick to parks and empty fields - a beginner EDF is a great idea but probably not at that size yet - although looks like its got great reviews even as a trainer......I just want to buy something with more power/aerobatic skills to grow into...seems like the Timber (umx or otherwise) would fit the bill....a 1s brushed plane is alittle on the weak side.

Changing fuselage tonight. On close inspection I'm surprised it didn't come apart in the air, lol. I've had more hard landings than good landings though. Many, many more.
