New here, but not new to RC. Was into planes years ago off and on for a brief moment and when I moved to Vancouver Island, I ended up racing on road and off road cars. Back to planes! I'm finished with racing .... I just want to put fun back into the hobby , not stress! My best memories are from when I was kid all out bashing Tamiya trucks with my buddies at the school yard. I get plenty of laughs watching the Flite Test videos which I started watching about five years ago. Enough watching - I want to laugh! Does anyone know of any big flight festivals on the west Coast? Living on the Island there is just less of everything, RC included. There are a couple of clubs run by old guys with way too many rules, not my style flying in a pattern all day. Id love to attend something like Flite Fest. I just started a Tiny Trainer scratch build chuck glider as I do not currently have any flight electronics.
