What do I do? How do I get Started? There are hundreds of questions new people to the wonderfull world of R/C will have.. Most people start out with the wrong equipment, and no idea what they are up against.. Thats what I did..I tried to do it all by myself.. I did manage to buy the right type airplane.. Only because I got lucky.. Most new pilots want to fly that Super fine P-51 Mustang with retracts and Gas engine

So, I get the thing built and I wait 2 weeks For the local flying (Area) to be empty (not a soul) lol. It lasted about 45 seconds and pieces and parts went FLYING everywhere.. It took me about 6 months to get over the Shock or better yet, the embarrasement of realizing I couldnt fly a toy airplane...(Imagine that!) I finally rebuilt the poor plane and swallowed my pride.. I then got some help from the local flying club and their instructor.. After that for me at least it was a piece of cake...Long story Short, I could have done it a lot sooner and a lot cheaper if I would have gotten help to begin with..

So, what makes a (GOOD) trainer plane... Almost everything a beginner sees is labeled (trainer).. Of course everybody has an opinion on what style airplane or heli is best to start with.. Since I am writing this article it will be based on MY There are LOW wing trainers, MID wing...Tail dragger, What works best for me is a HIGH wing, flat bottom air-foil, trike-gear, at least a (40) size so you can see it and the wind wont bother it too much..(both of which are more important than you realize right now). Ive even trained with electric planes as long as they are large enough..

Our club is in the process of setting up a pc at the field with an R/C flight simulator plus we have a CLUB trainer we can use if you havent purchased your plane yet.. You dont have to be a member to get a trial run, but we will ask you to join after a few visits.. You will be required to have AMA before you can fly on your own..More about that in my next submission...CHRIS RILEY..AMA 332650 V-P MCRCC 228-326-1436

It is a boy!

Joshua David Latil was born on May 17th around 2:09 pm, 7 lbs. 6 oz. 19.5 inches long. He is doing great so far! I always thought new borns were a bit on the ugly side the day of birth, but I think Joshua was an exception, truly a beautiful baby boy. Jenny started at 9 am, so it was a quick labor for the first. Jenny was having a tuff time till she had her epidural, and then things were MUCH better. We have been learning a lot the last few days, and have been living on about 2 hours of sleep a day, but it is worth it. Jenny is doing well also, she looked great minutes after birth.

Chris, David Felder and I (David Latil) headed out to the SeaBee days event today. Chris brought his scale heli, David brought his scale and 90 size raptor, I brought a swift and a microbat.

Turned out they really didn't give us enough room to safely give Chris and David room to do anything but hover. The crowd still enjoyed it. At one point, there were 2 heli's in the air at once, which was abruptly ended when Chris' tail servo failed in mid flight! No damage was done. Chris isn't too happy that he is going to have to strip his scale body off (no small ordeal). David F. also had some trouble with his exhaust.

I helped Chris get the Swift in the air, had a good time with that. Ended up having some issues with that too, but everything came back in one piece, Unlike my microbat (don't ask).

All and all, it was a pretty good time. We'll know what to expect next time. We'll definitely bring some 'do not touch' signs for the heli's, a MCRCC sign, some more chairs, and some more foamies.
