    Where is everybody?

    Where did everyone go? Some days were only getting 1 or 3 posts a day! Was there a migration? I gotta say- it makes me really sad that the Circus, or Cirkus of old has dwindled to current status. I spent years trying to re kindle the fire any way I could. I guess it was all for...

    Well, I thought I would post it here first. AS3X ASK-21 sailplane, complete with three chargers, original box, and a DX5 transmitter. The antenna cover kept falling off, and at some point got lost. But, that's OK because I'm giving it away with the package! The ASK is in good shape...

    120cc AW Freestyle 260

    Just found a new video of the 260 that I think highlights it's 3D ability. The video isn't that great, but watch how quick this kid goes from one maneuver into another. Total control. I understand the production version will have 1" less chord at the tip, and 1" less span on each wing to...
