Senior Kadett!

It's a big ol plane, .40 powered. It's kind of like flying a kite. Gus the I.A. Is the owner and builder. It just floated around up there. Pretty Cool! Thanks to him for letting me take a spin!

That's the big version of the one IU want to build. It's pushed back until after the Yak 9 now. But that'll be my first RC. You already have RC experience don't you, Ron?

Yes, but very little. I didn't take off or land. Too windy for me. I hate crashing other peoples planes.

It's a very stable plane and really just flys itself until you provide input.

Hey, neat picture! You did a fine job with that flying lumber-pile! It's a good, old airplane.

You know, I haven't visited too many other flying fields, but this picture makes me think how lucky we are, around here, to have some dedicated flying fields. Not just the R/C places, but the circles where we fly, also.

Here's a poke at you... I hope you weren't walking backwards when you snapped this shot! Ha!

It was fun having you here!

I love the Sig Kadets. We had a Señor and currently have a Señorita. Both fly nice. Nice enough that we have two Señor kits waiting to be built. We gave our original Señor to a relative so he could get his started in flying.

You guys are funny!

It is the FAA's designation for "Inspection Authorization". It is a little more privledge than an A&P has in signing off aircraft repairs, and inspections for airworthiness. I used to own my own repair facility at a nearby airport.

Models are a whole other game, though! None of my real (full-scale) airplanes have suffered the disasterous fate that many of my models have. Thank goodness!

Seeing how unexpectedly I can put my models into the ground sort of tempers my regret that I never got into aviation. Of course the big ones aren't quite as close to the ground.

Haha, yeah, I get that. But at least it takes them a little longer to get there.

Let me translate that:

"I had to convince guys, who have no problem paying $100 per hour to have a mechanic look at their S Class Mercedes, that spending $50 per hour to maintain a Mooney was quite reasonable."
