New to R/C flying, new a beginner plane
| Right on CG. As they say in Paris, chaqun a son gout! What does an ARF
| "builder" do with his time during those long winter months?
Fly, of course. Or repair his ARFs. Or spend time with the wife and
kids, because they won't see him much during the summer.
| But then again, maybe all the ARFers are from the sunny south and
| they just assemble and fly.
I doubt that. And even an ARF can require quite a bit of work.
In any event, people can and do fly in the snow.
| I'm afraid I'm from the old school where the real hobby component is
| building. My greatest satisfaction is going to the field and having
| someone ask me whether my kit-built plane is an ARF.
Kits? Bah! We'd be more impressed if you made your own sticks,
rather than buying boxes of pre-cut sticks. And plans are nice, but
if you want to really impress everybody, design your own plane.
You may be so much better than the ARF flyers, but at least they're
flying. And the scratch builders are so much better than you, but
they're not even getting to do much flying during the summer months
