Based on the interest of my boys we’ve rejoined the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics)
and joined the local Radio Controlled Flying Club “Manitwo Flyers”
We’ve had a plane for while, but I had never gotten around to reassembly. It is a built-from-kit “Ugly Stik 40″ which I traded other hobby gear for with a good friend. Well built, but perhaps a bit on the hotter end of being a R/C trainer. Here is what it looks like (click on the picture for a larger view):
Our youngest, Victor (who is the only non-Radio Amateur Male in our house BTW….) has had the lessons so far. The club has excellent people and great facilities. I guess pretty soon I will have to give it some time and start lessons as well!
The Amateur Radio Connections are pretty obvious, but we need to accomplish the basics of R/C Flying first!
