Anyone heard what the weather is gonna be up theah in Maine? Forecasting rain in VT this weekend for the Killington Classic Motorcycle get together.

Would be a good trip up there though with a side trip to NH for the Seafood Festival this weekend.

So much to do, so little time!

I used to fly a lot in college, but I haven't flown for ages.

This sounds cool, maybe I'll drive down on Saturday or Sunday.

Not sure of the scale, but its about 6ft long when assembled. It takes a 5hp glow-fuel engine to turn the turbo-fan, which is about 6 inches in dia. I believe the thrust is more than the weight of the plane. I got the radio too, if your interested, I believe its a 12 chan Futaba. I know there were a couple pieces Back ordered from the kit which I never re-ordered, but you can order these thru BVM. Fully retractable landing gear, the nose gear was one part that was back ordered, but I never re-ordered. All actuators and releases are operated by pressurized air tanks, onboard the F-16.
Its a kit, and just a box of parts right now, so no sense in posting a pic. I attached a complete list of what parts I have. Sold asis. Its a kit.
Make me a offer !

That's insane, no wonder everyone in the rest of the world thinks we're whacky. If your model RC plane needs a trailer you may be obsessed. :P That A-10 is ridiculous.

when you have 15-20 grand in a model plane you are in the upper level of the "who dies with the most toys wins" club!!

But the club has no legal authority. What I'm asking is if I went out and bought one of these and had a field for takeoff and landing I'm assuming their is no restrictions? Is their any FAA restrictions as to where you can fly them. Those things are pretty damn big.
