    When I saw this ad, I couldn't help but think of @SixPapaCharlie 's Brynon. I hope royalties were exchanged (I doubt it).

    Yeah, the Brynon. Made for guys that only understand four basic colors and don't have a clue about magenta.

    It's fine. Timing on this seems suspicious as well:

    Really?
    A record?
    Do it with a tailwheel and just keep going in circles from runway to taxiway to runway without setting the tail down... Or use a dirt oval...

    Cox made airplanes just for flying in circles.

    As did I. And no, that is not a testiment of my skills in flying them.

    Your video was better, your airplane is cooler, and I had fewer concerns about w&b while watching.

    I was going to trademark these things for @SixPapaCharlie but didn’t want to draw any IRS/FAA scrutiny... :)

    I crashed many! :)

    The bigger stuff that needed steel wires got a bit hairy once you ventured above the venerable 0.49 CI engine.

    Only had one of those. Luckily never crashed it.

    Did more Estes rockets than the circular flight path airplanes though. The bigger the better on those!

    My big brother tried to combine the two, by strapping a rocket engine to the back of the control line plane, but he wasn’t much of an engineer. It flipped over before getting off the ground and ended up a smoking, melted pile of goo. It was fun to watch though.

    I graduated to radio control by the time I was 13 or 14. My all time favorite was a Goldberg 1/4 scale cub. I put a rubberized pilot in the cabin. He wasn't a full body...only belly button up and I mounted him to a flat piece of balsa. His head was a separate piece and his neck slipped down into his bomber jacket. So I rigged him up so that he turned his head when I stepped on the rudder. :cool:

    I didn't dabble with RC planes until after I was already a pilot. I built a couple ARF trainers with .40 size engines. I got about a half dozen flights out of the first one before it met its demise with a street light. I found a better spot to fly the second one - a paved ag strip out in rice country, and got a few dozen flights out of that one before it hit a telephone line on a low approach. That damage was repairable, but it was stolen out of my garage before I could get another flight.

    Genie screw drive garage door openers suck major whale penis. The thing would sometimes randomly open before it closed completely. I lost a lot of stuff when I didn't catch it that morning. Never again.

    When I was stationed in Hawaii a buddy and I were always customizing our CL toys. At one point we had a couple that would do three foot diameter loops.

    When we got bored with that, we went to the local grocery store and bought a $4 styrofoam glider. Lopped off the nose and fiberglassed an 0.49 engine with a built-in fuel tank. Carved out a hollow spot in the fuselage just big enough for a receiver, battery, and one servo. Fabricated a rudder and connected the servo. Fiberglassed a cup hook under the nose. Took it to the grass lot (Richardson Field) west of Aloha Stadium and using 100 feet of rubber band and 100 feet of 550 cord staked in the ground, hand launched it with the motor screaming. By the time the fuel tank ran dry we would have it in the thermals coming off the parking lot of Aloha Stadium. After a five minute or so powered climb using just the rudder to point it where we needed it, we could keep it aloft for as long as we wanted on those thermals.

    I built one of the Goldberg 1/4 scale Cubs while I was in Korea my first tour. I finished the wing and fuselage and had a Saito 120 4-stroke motor for it.

    Unfortunately, I never got around to covering it and forgot to take it with me when I came back to the 'States. When I returned to Korea three years later, the Cub was still there at the crafts shop! I worked on it some more and again forgot about it, so it was never finished. :(

    I got into RC helicopters and gliders after that and even played with some of those insanely fast line control planes. Those were the ones you could see in the crazy competitions, where two guys would fly in the same circle and cut each other's ribbons!
