Hi all,

Let's try some photo of the month. But this time, anyone can enter a photo, then the group can vote on the photo.

This is a past winner using the old method:

Sadly, not too many people actually fly anymore.
Why do you think that is?
For me the maintenance loss the "fun gloss", so a hobby that feels like work at times, was doomed in my book.

I really miss those early mornings with a fun bunch of guys though.
Been in and out of this hobby since 1976.

I was born in 76!

Without camaraderie it isn't as fun, that's for sure.

For the fun of it and since Brutus & Xpress posted two,:rolleyes2:

This is what the GPS address request to Pilot RC in Shenzen Providence looks like on a Chinese GPS! Now that's special, no?

I think he's alluding to how easy, and maybe pointless being able to hover is.

Not sure I understand...
For some reason I was thinking there was a single picture limit for the "contest:. Perhaps not, as obviously I made that chit up all in my own mind!
Sorry guys-

Brutus- I have the highest regard for those who "huck"!! Mastery of the sticks is not optional!

Fwiw, "staff" have never really been eligible. Post what you want, show off your best pics. Its not like you will be winning a cash prize.

This was modeling at its truest form. Back when if you wanted to fly it, YOU had to BUILD it.
The next level was to take the actual three views and project on tracing paper backing up till the aprox size for the power to be used and scratch build, well nearly everything.
Even cutting foam cores was in its infancy back then.

These were Rutan's Quickie & Long EZ probably 1982 +-.

The owner of that Long easy let us crawl all over it for scale photo docs . and then took us (individually) for quite an aerobatic ride over the Atlantic.
