Thanks for inspiring me to take this particular type of madness up again. :)

Things are so much easier, cheaper and more fun now than it was back then.
When i started you spent maybe two months building a model, flew for five minutes if you where lucky and then spent an hour sweeping up balsa splinters of the runway.

It also brought my son out from the videogames and he actually seems to like it. :)

Here are a few videos.

The first one is a keycam on a Hobbyzone champ and the second one is the maiden of our scrathbuil tricopter.

We seem to share the same story =). So any update on the tricopter - got the hovering sorted out?
