Time to Build a New Plane – Which One? – Audience Participation Requested.

June 20, 2009

Several of the staff here have asked me to feature a plane here at the blog. Show the assembly, etc.

Rather than me picking, I thought it would be “funner” (no that is not a real word..) for everyone to get a vote.

I like all the categories and planes we sell in general, thus I’m happy to assemble whatever planes you all want to see.

Pick a plane from any of these brands and vote. Comment here, send me a message at Twitter, etc..

Thanks in advance for your input!

Menifee Club in Temecula

260Trojan 36 ARFTrojan CanopyTrojan CowlClub Meeting Show and Tell 1Club Meeting Show and Tell 2Club Meeting Show and Tell 3Menifee Flying FieldWent to a club meeting out near the Hobby People Murrietta Store. The Menifee Valley Flyers.

I love clubs. This one was especially well-manners. They all seemed to get along so well! And, new members were there and were welcomed, and the meeting was overall just really fun!

First, I met Mike Braun, one of the Hobby People District Managers at the store. Had a nice conversation with some of the guys down there. They were busy of course helping customers and what not, but generally seemed to be very pleasant (as they should be!) And, they had some great questions for me so that made it fun.

Then Mike and I went to the Menifee field as temporary guests for the day (we would only fly there, of course, with the permission of the officers and of course, we have AMA). The field is at the edge of a hill and while the flying area is not too big, it is protected and there’s no houses, roads, etc to hit. It’s very pretty this time of year too! Thanks to the club!

Mike B flew his Mini Magic Extra. Mike used to be a car guy (he and I raced cars together back at Bob and Jim’s in Riverside when I was in College! 88-91!!!). Bob now owns Dynamic Hobbies out there. He’s an official Global Dealer and a heck of a nice guy.

The Mini Magic Extra Flies Great. Mike has the same motor out of the Fledgling along with an Impulse 1450 3 cell pack. Mike flies it great too! No longer just a car-guy, Mike is becoming quite an accomplished pilot!

I flew a prototype BHModels Exra 260 EP and a smaller T-28 Trojan. It’s a 36 size version of the 91 size we already carry. Both were fun!!! They are so well made. It could go on and on, but the bottom line is they are GREAT.

Flew both with the Airtronics RDS8000 as expected. These radios continue to fly perfectly. Secure, reliable, rock solid. Don’t know what else to say! They simply work.

At the Club meeting, there were 3 show and tell planes. A Cermark Extra with E-power. A BHModels Yak 46 with an OS46, and a VQModels P-40 Checkertail with a 4Stroke!

The members all say the like the models and impressed with the quality, flight performance, and price. What more could a project manager ask for?!!

So, why am I posting about something so mundane? Day of flying and a club meeting??? wooohoo like that doesn’t happen everyday?

My point is: It does happen! And it happens mostly because Nice groups of people who put modeling and club success first over petty differences make the best clubs! And, this club is no exception!! They are leaders, in my opinion, of what a club should be! Lots of activities, lots of fun, while making sure they have a safe, reliable field that encourages fun, learning, and participation. Yet another prime example of why clubs are great and how great they can be when organized and lead by decent people who care. I was truly impressed and was thankful I was invited in and treated so well!

All of you clubbies out there, you know who you are! Keep up the GREAT WORK and THANK YOU for making the hobby fun and keeping those flying fields up and running!!!!

Review on Ezone

December 13, 2007

The BH Models Trojan 60 size ARF has a GREAT review online at ezonemag (RC Groups). It not only shows the plane but a fairly affordable conversion to electric power. Powerful electrics are becoming more attainable without exotic equipment. This article really shows how nice a big power system can be.
