  • Greetings from Georgia!

    Hey guys! New here. I live in the beautiful state of Georgia, and we are privileged with nice thermal weather most year round. I'm looking forward to using this site more! I have already made my first post, being a wanted ad for an E-flite 4.2M Blanik. A little background on me... I am a full time student, working towards my flight instructor ratings. I am also working towards my A&P certificate. I own three full scale airplanes. Two unpowered, and one powered lol. I have a LET L-13 Blanik, a Scleicher Ka-7 Rhonadler, and a Globe GC-1B Swift.

    I have been been an avid rc addict for a good portion of my life. I am just now getting into scale soaring however. I'm excited to start doing some scale aerotow like stuff!

    -Colin

    Hi Colin,
    Thanks for joining the group and congrats on getting started in scale soaring. Like you, I was an avid full scale pilot and flew RC quite a bit as well, once I ventured into Scale Soaring and aerotowing, most other types of flying is just an afterthought.
    You'll love attending aerotows, hopefully you can make the SERA event May, 4-7 . more info is here

    I'll be attending again this year with Jim this time. Should be fun, the last two years were a blast.

      I was in Peachtree city last weekend helping a buddy pick up a Hatz fuselage. We visited the Dixie Wing of the Commemorative Air Force and crawled around the aircraft in the hangar going through their annuals. What a lot of fun! The Globe Swift is one of my favorite low wing civvy jobs and I am almost finished with a 1/6 RC version. You will absolutely love aerotowing! It is so fun and the like-minded folks are even 'funner'! Well... except maybe that lenb guy from up north! Welcome aboard!

          Hey I appreciate it. My dad works with the Dixie wing. Their P-63 King Cobra just maidened the other weekend! And awesome on the 1/6 swift! I can't wait to see it myself. I want to build a large scale rc one eventually. And yeah I've done some aerotowing in the past, but not a lot, and not with giant scale gliders.

            If it's anywhere near as much fun as fullscale gliding I know I'm in for a treat!!

              Okay, ol' buddy! Can't wait til we all fly some more!

              Meadowlarksoaring, I hope we didn't get in your Dad's or anybody else's way... we got the grand tour and everything! I'd like to build a -63 with clipped wings like one of the old Reno Racers!

                No I'm sure you didn't get in their way at all! There is tons of room there haha. Yeah the P-63 is such a unique airplane, I love it! The Reno racer is iconic in my book, that would make an awesome subject to model.

                    I live in Henry County (Locust Grove), and go to school in Eastman Georgia which is kind of Inbetween Perry and Dublin Georgia.
