I joined for several reasons. First of all I was really scammed buy a guy in Grand Junction Colorado. I had saved for a while and was interested in building a big RC Aeronca 7 AC Champ. I have a 1/4 scale. I built AA Industries really a challenge. But I got thru it. I wanted a larger version. And Rcaiir offered a 1/3rd Kit. I ordered it over a year ago. Turned out to be a scam. I am still motivated and want to do this. I lost a lot of money. And learned a lesson. Happy to be on board. I live in north Texas. We have had a record breaking summer temps. And the farmers say we are in for a cold winter! Wel see. AJ.

Just as a warning this guys name is Don Carlson that scammed me. He talks a big talk about being a great modeler. But it's all a scam. All I could find out was he was a roofing contractor. Many warned about him starting jobs and never finishing it. What a mistake I made. AJ.

We have scammers on all model websites in Russia all the time. Basically, they offer for sale very cheap equipment: engines, batteries and so on.. All modelers who have laser equipment for cutting model blanks have long been known to everyone from their publications. Recently, due to flight bans, many modelers have stopped appearing on websites.This is used by scammers-they just hack into an account and sell a fake on behalf of a decent modeler. I'd rather buy on aliexpress than cheap from a scammer.Although in the summer I bought from a well-known aircraft modeler cheap 2 sets of long-range modules with receivers and 2 Arducopter 2.8 + 2 Arducopter given as a gift together GPS N8M. Life teaches us lessons from which we gain experience.

Hey guys I am still beating the bushes for a scale windshield for my AA Industries 1/4th scale Champ I had a set back and I am repairing lots of damage after a landing accident and mid air on short final. Almost made it but not quite. Rebuild my left wing and fuselage damage. So why not beat the bushes for a scale windshield. Hated the windshield I made for it never looked right! If you all come across one please let me know. I would buy three if I could find them.AJ

I recently tried a DIY drone, using HEQ's drone: SWAN K1 PRO PNP, this drone has VTOL function, also provides flight control and GPS. I put my own gopro camera in and used the HEQ battery. The flight time was about 50 minutes, and the shooting pictures were very stable.

And one more remark - now many such sources have appeared https://casinosanalyzer.com/online-casinos/revolut I also got it wrong and passed a lot of money to someone, I wanted to try gambling, but in fact I was tricked and now I'm out of money, from this I can draw a conclusion, be careful what you do with your money because lately there have been a lot of scams.
Hi, I hope everything is fine with you, by the way I was also tricked in such a way, since then I just order with the agreement that I will pay when I receive the parcel, I recommend you to do so.

I'm in Colorado. Want me to do a hit on him? ☠️ 😄 My Tutor is good at kamikaze runs into the head -ask me how I know. 😱
I assume you actually took appropriate legal action?

(No, FBI, CIA, NSA, KGB, ETC... I don't do "hits" for hire. Keep your shorts on. 🤪 I only work for Mossad 🇮🇱, and only occasionally now. 😉)

Unfortunate that you have been scammed. Anyway, I believe being a good person will one day pay off.

Hey Mossed your post made me laugh. I worked a year for Air America. Oh US Park service! Sorry department of the interior. I did contact a lawyer but jumping borders is expensive to get him served. I asked for my money back. What a joke. Just don't deal with this guy. I wanted the guys to know and I was warned about him. Did see Nother post about a guy that received a 1/3rd scale J -3; cub from him. He told me he did not do a Cub. What's that about. Hey you guys been warned.AJ

Airport Atmosphere:

The journey typically begins at the airport, a bustling hub of activity where the excitement of departure mingles with the hum of announcements and the rustle of fellow travelers. Check-in procedures, security checks, and the aroma of international cuisines create a unique atmosphere that signals the imminent adventure.
