Notice the pile of PT-19 pieces in my friend's hand. That's my pit boss to my right.

Couple of fine guys. I really hope to meet y'all again. I want y'all to meet Watt's old friend Curtis from Alabama, he's a hoot, always happy, and a damn fearless pilot. Fun guy!

Myself adultering my own COX-aholism with this beautiful Denight 50 Special R/C plane made by Hangar 9, powered by an OS Max 56 FS Alpha four stroke powerplant



No matter if it is the Denight I am flying, I remain COX powered..(The logo on my back is worth showing more than my face..)

Fly baby fly...Denight 50 Special during take-off..I must admit taking off the ground is way more difficult on a rough terrain and deep grass than hand launching my COX powered RC birds..



Look at the patience on my ole-lady's face while I am kneeling in prep for a flight..



And finally....tons of power in this antique TD051 RC to drive my Toucan..The black thing on the right wing is a key-chain camera

Orange County Social Services, right. You're a long way from home. Andras.
Hey, it's great that your wife will go to the field with you. Mine will come and even launch for me if I just fly the babies across the street, and she likes the contests, but won't go to my club field at the fort. They don't have porta-johns. Rolling Eyes

Thanks Rusty. I should have asked what the building was, not is. It is the former COX HQ at 1505 East Warner Ave. Santa Ana California

Oh... Doh! I'm not much of a Cox historian and wouldn't have remembered that. We have plenty of guys here that could have gotten it right. I'm more of a Cox abuser

Our son Fletch a couple of years ago with his Li'l Bat.  He's about 2 feet taller now, 16 and not a scrap of interest in flying.  He and I built a pair of Blackhawk Li'l Bats.  He attempted to fly it once- didn't work, gave it up.  Hard to keep kids interested for more than 5 seconds, unless of course it involves a screen and 2 thumbs.  That keeps them going for hours.


This one is his older brother.  Holding the handle for the photo was about as close as he got apart from launching (badly) once.


I went for something slightly larger.


Then all 3 of us got airbourne in one of these.

Taking off with a winch launch is better than any rollercoaster.

My flying buddy is a glider pilot. I have yet to take a ride though.
Those Lil Bats are tough to launch. Mine is just all over the place until I can catch it. I expect the kids have many redeeming qualities, even if it's not model planes.

My late brother flew gliders and was actually killed in a gliding accident. I never got a chance to go up with him- he was air force and was all over the country. After his death we went to visit the gliding club he helped establish & we went for a fly. Couldn't quite entice my wife to go up, but us boys certainly enjoyed it. I released from the winch rope at 1,000' and the instructor let me take over straight away. Got about a 20 minute flight in and gained about 1,000' more in altitude due to a very strong thermal. The idea that you could keep flying and even gain altitude without an engine and no other means of energy input apart from nature just blew me away.

Yes, small combat wings are very squrrelly and take a bit of catching. Unfortunately Fletch didn't want to take over from me and wanted to start his first attempt himself and couldn't catch it. Broke off the engine mount so ended the day's attempt. Haven't got him out since.

Yes navion34, they had 2 Blaniks and they're a great training glider, but unfortunately they had a worldwide grounding due to a fatigue problem in Europe and it almost destroyed the club. The cost of modifying the Blaniks to fly again was too much and they were sold off for a very low price. I believe one of them is airbourne again after having about $20,000 spent on it. The club has really taken a few hits and struggles to survive. Unfortunately they are too far away for me to be more involved more often. It's certainly a cheaper & simpler way to get into flying full size.
