  1. Rescue project: finish building an airplane that was started but never finished. I'm just curious what everyone has hanging around in the shop that needs a flash of inspiration to get back on the board again. Anyone's building board. I've found a few kits in the "started" phase and the projects are sometimes more exciting than had I gotten them NIB. Most recently I finished an Astron 40 that came with a personal backstory I'm now proudly a part of. The satisfaction is more doubled. I've now got a SIG Somethin' Extra, which is cool, but I don't know who owned it last and why the project stalled. It's going to make a great fun-fly model but without that personal connection, I'm having a hard time jumping into it. Anyone else have this problem?
  2. Does our club do any kind of swap meet? I didn't see anything on the calendar. I'm thinking of something casual (semi-private) where we take one of the evening winter social meetings and hold a swap/auction. Perhaps some proceeds could go to the club?
  3. Lots of good choices in there. The right choice depends on the field availability, budget and aptitude of the pilot. I would also add that a quadcopter is good for beginners because the small versions can be flown indoors, practically anytime and the eye-to-hand coordination skills learned translate directly into airplane flight.
  4. Best of luck to you, Tim! Congratulations on the new chapter. West Virginia sounds like a great place to live.
  5. The most beautiful RC club awning I've ever seen. Makes me proud.
  6. Someone has got a great idea on how to teach our kids about business, marketing and manufacturing with a model airplane kit at its heart. http://www.telemastersupplylines.com/
