Hello, my name is Rick. Just fell into this site. It looks great. I fly a 1/2 scale Smith Miniplane and a 1/5 scale Waco. Been flying the Waco since 1986. Also have a couple of small electrics. Blessings to all and happy landings.

After that I start by wrapping the header or can numerous times with 1/8" soft copper tubing, in this example there is 26 inches of copper tubing on each header. I like to start the...

After dozens of emails and months of trying to get rebuild parts from Pilot RC I gave up. I am just going to move everything to a new Yak now. Pictures of the new one as I swap everything over. 20190513_205949.jpg
