Yeah it’s a pretty cool plane, I got to see it’s areobatics demonstration and it’s crazy what a talented pilot can do with all the thrust vectoring and stuff
I agree I live in Oregon and over in Burns. yearly they have an airshow I’m going this year and last year they had an old jet not sure what kind it was but it flew mock one and it was just awesome not to mention they had two fully restored B-17‘s that flew out of there, and several corsairs that were part of the show! Go to it I’d be glad to see you

They had a similar thing in aurora a handful of years ago. There was a couple B-17’s, a B-24, skyraider, B-25, and a P-51D

Anybody else running out of room in their hanger? I'm full... and there are still more planes to build.

Do you know when you all have that airshow? I live over by Salem and would make the drive to Burns for something cool like that.

Not RC related but I picked up a project bike today - 2001 TL1000S with a TL1000R engine in it. $700 because it won't start. Hopefully it'll be a quick fix and flip.

Oh that’s awesome I’m really into bikes too although I am just a kid I got too mini bikes and an original pristine condition 1979 Honda trail 90 that me and my dad restored, and my dad just bought a brand new TW 200 Yamaha to get out on the trail
 
A friend gave me this new plane today and here’s the before and after the wings it was sitting for a long time so I need to do some engine work on it because the engine is jammed at the moment but I’m pretty sure with a new glow plug and some oil so I can get it running
