Your rolling in high cotton now!
I love being waist deep in the high cotton!
Hey Shug. I've built and flown 6 Ares. All flew great. I think of it as the true All American Stunt Plane.
Six...wow! I want to build one someday too.
Now that you have flown some good, well trimmed models, it's a real eye opener and helps you see what you need to do to improve your own models, and what to do a look for on the next ones you build. You've hooked up with a good group up there, just too much winter for me in the Great White North!
Type at you later,
Very true. I will build this Winter for sure. After looking at Keith's builds I am inspired to be better at it, be patient and really try.
This Summer has been about airtime.
Very nice! Mine is a lot of fun to fly, and I like to think of it as an old friend. I won't fly it for a very long time, and I'll take it out to knock the dust off. I'll always get a one flip start and flies like I remember it always did.
I like hearing that. I'm just happy to not bonk it in on my first flight with it.
Interesting the way things have changed.
Late 50's and early 60's you hardly ever heard of a model being for sale or someone bringing a model to the field he didn't build himself.
I bought my Smoothie, but got lucky on that, I believe 1963? Give or take a year.
I had to build my Ares.
Fast forward to today and I find myself waiting for a stash to go up for sale, I'll know soon what's there.
Shug, do you think you'll try your hand at building? I won't be mad if you don't.
I will tell you this. Your activity as a modeler, who gets out and flies and brings that activity to the Forum, has prompted myself to put together an ARF Pathfinder, so I can fly more often.
Yes, I flew it yesterday!

I put the word out to my club I was looking to buy and got some responses. And I did not know if folks sold older planes. Thrilled to get them so I can work on flying.
Plan to build this Winter. Have an electric P-51 ready to be built from RSM.
Good to hear about the Pathfinder....I have been eyeballing that one for sure. Looks so good. How did it fly?
