Hello to all.

I have a RC airplane that I have had for a long time and have never been able to get comprehensive tutoring. I have flown twice with my trainer but still need allot of guidance before I can go solo. If there are any tutors in the area surrounding Montana, Bon Accord, or even on the plots in the Rooiwal or Bultfontein areas please contact me.

I am very keen to get to the level where I can fly alone as I live on a plot and have ample space. If guys inthe area are looking for a spot to fly contact me as well.

Cheers :thumbup:

Hi Paul,

Nice to see a fellow modeller here! :thumbup:
I've been in the RC game since '99; although I haven't flown much from 2005-2007 ; raced karts for a while.
Been flying off & on since then, got busy with home renovations & then the move from PE last year...

I flew mostly Correx planes since 2002 somewhere. I would love to come fly at your spot; just need to redo the Fuse on my Spazzler...became brittle so I had to toss it. I have a buddy cord for my JR radio & I fly mode 2.

PM me.

Good Morning

I live in the Cullinan area on a farm so also a lot of space for flying. My brother in law and i are playing around with rc helicopters but flying mostly on the simulator because it is much cheaper than a crash kit. After most of the landings we still have to bend more than once to pick up our aircraft.

So if someone can give us some tips/help it will be much appreciated. Or if someone want some flying space you re welcome.

I started on a Stick 40 and changed later to a 4star 40, later I scaled up the plan by 20% with a 80 four stroke flat twin what a nice plane :thumbup:
Had a Space walker 1/4 scale that I never built :sick: :thumbdown:
