Cool New Project

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to give you a heads up that I've got a new project underway. You can find it at


    It's a free-to-the-public forums site dedicated to the Champ, Citabria, and Decathlon family of airplanes and I've got an RC sub forum for enthusiasts to post RC stuff related to these aircraft.

    A little background, when I sold MultiRotorForums and GSN to Paul, I paid off any debt the sites had and paid off my office lease. I used the little bit I had left :face-palm: as a down payment on a 1968 Citabria 7ECA. That is the 115 hp version, no flaps, pretty basic but very fun to fly.

    Having been a part of that community for about a year and a half now it's been frustrating that the only place to go for info is either Facebook or a pay-to-enter club site that is just about dead on most days.

    So here we are. If you love these airplanes then please feel free to give us a look, we'll see you there and I'll keep updating my Citabria build thread right here!

    Thats' great Bart! Dad taught me how to fly in this L-16....military version of the champ. Had a whopping 65hp on tap:confused: L-16 cropped.jpg

    Not only is it awesome that your dad taught you to fly but he did it in a very cool version of a very cool plane!

    Knife edge passes? Hovering? All that horsepower................
  5. I’ve been getting the itch to take some flying lessons but my wife isn’t hip to the idea. We live maybe a mile from our local airport so it would be easy for me to do. Maybe after our youngest is grown...

    that's when a lot of people get started with lessons. if when you get started, try to get your wife involved so she can see what is involved. by learning a little about it she might become more comfortable with the idea.

    I took a few lessons back when a solo license cost about $1,000. Probably a bit more expensive than that now.

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    The "itch" finally grew some legs and crawled off my back several years ago. But I do have a couple of "joy" rides in a Super Decathlon and logged 20 hours in a Turbo Mentor when I was active duty. Now I just log most hours in the shop staring at my dog lol. Well......working on a Cub too.
