What's It all About ???

This page is all about the building and flying of radio controlled model aircraft. It's a highly diversified hobby that takes in as many skills as you like to use. Everything from electronics to carpentry, to painting, to drawing and designing with a little bit of metal work thrown in. Some builders even go into doing their own machining, pattern designing, fibre glassing, moulding and engine design. You can use electric motors, 2 stroke or 4 stroke internal combustion engines or even minature turbine (jet) engines for power. My own models use 2 and 4 stroke internal combustion engines and range in size from about a metre in wingspan to well over 3 metres from tip to tip!

Slow progress is better than none!

Yes, I know, it takes me forever to get anything much done. No excuse, it's my hobby, I work at the pace that suits me and do what I want to do when I feel like doing it. If that doesn't suit you then I have two suggestions -1. Get a life.  2. Go find some one who builds at the frantic speed you think everyone should work at.

OK - so I've had my little rant to the bright spark who felt compelled to email me with his demands - sorry fella - it's a hobby for me - not an obsession - go complain to someone else.  For those readers who understand that this is a hobby, and that you can work at any damn speed you want to here is an update.

1. I've almost finished the Bird of Time rebuild - the wreck is  starting to look like a Bird of Time again - a couple of update photos on it's build page.

2. I've made some progress on the Lancaster - sorry the photos aren't ready yet - AND - I've started to build the Mosquito. 

3. So - when I get around to it - hopefully in the next week - or so - there will be an update to the Gallery page, the Lancaster photos, some progress on the Fournier RF4 and a bit more on my helicopter obsession - and yes - I will try to put a Mosquito page together..
