    5min into flying sea otter on asphalt...

    Everything was going great, it taxis very well in deep snow (with a little bit of up elevator). Slides across the asphalt great with and added plactic shield on the bottom. Was flying great on the few short take off and landings. Then on my last approach, just as i was bouncing to a stop (seems...

    I built my first plane (FT Storch)... and now its winter... I picked a bad time to learn to fly.

    I'm just looking for friendly talk/help to help me get through this winter here in Northern Michigan. It does not permit many good flying opportunities... I had a chance to fly my Storch 1 time (the day before the snow came, and has not stopped snowing for more then a week), but crashed it many...

    Snow Bomber V2

    Winter is coming. Well not really but I will start gather the parts to get one of my projects from last winter reborn. Last year I had some success with this plane but the big props meant I had to build the motor mounts really tall. In the cold and with some hard landing I kept knocking them...

    FT 3D Indoors?

    Hi everyone! Quick question. Is the FT 3D too big to fly in a decent sized school gym? I'm looking to get my flying fix amid winter's wind and cold. Thanks!
