Hello, as I said, I'm in Kalamazoo and a member of the Kalamazoo Thunderbirds. I'm a returning pilot. I've been away from RC for about 10 years. Time enough for many things to change.
My grandson found out that I knew how to fly RC and asked if I would teach him. That's about all it took to get me started. We have about 8 micro aircraft and three of the mid size foamies from Horizon Hobby.
By the way I think those guys at HH are pretty great. I'm not used to the new hi-tec radios and everything else that goes along with electric aircraft, but everytime I call they've got an answer and they're so patient and helpful.
Right now I'm in the process of assembling a PKZ P-47 Thunderbolt. Seems like a great aircraft and I think it'll fly great. I've been flying the HZ SC LP, with a E-flite Park 450 under the cowl. Last week I flew my PKZ P-51 BL, with a Park 480 in the nose. The P-51 is one heck of a flyer and the Park 480 just makes it better.
That's about it. I look forward to helping and being helped by others on this fourm in the future.
