I remember his last flight with that plane... He was doing a very low inverted fly by close to the runway (he had done many times) preparing to go into an inverted loop... The rudder made contact with the ground and that was it. That thing sat in his shop for years....

We have a guy around here who sometimes flies something that must have a 4 or 5 foot wing span at an old abandoned golf course up my street. It sounds like a wailing banshee and he's pretty adept at aerobatics, but I'd be scared of crashing into a tree while attempting an outside loop or tailslide.

We also have people that sail radio controlled sail boats in a sheltered bay on Lac St. Louis which seems a little boring, but I guess is okay if you're really into sailing.

I would like a radio controlled wife myself but the algorithms to make her work properly keep eluding me.

This looks like FUN.


How about a REAL RC Jet.

Ironically peeps, my interest in RC cars has been piqued (again) and I ended up picking up a couple of (entry level) trucks to bash around with.

Now I plan to pick up another rig (not so different from what you mentioned AlexB)

The HPI Trophy looks to be a good vehicle as far as parts support goes and durability. Its a 1/8 scale so you know that its going to be much more durable than your run of the mill 1/10 scalers.

Are you planning to pick up a RTR (Ready to run) or a kit (where you add the electronics yourself)

Also, are you going nitro powered or electric?

*EDIT*
I just realized that you are from Pakistan there Alex... Not to discriminate, but in our experience that region is known for spammers.
Please prove me wrong...
