Looks good Ray! Just one weak link is all it takes to bring a plane down. Thanks for the heads up!

Hi Gordon;

YES ---- you are right about one weak link , in this hobby . If you think what can happen , it will take the fun out of our hobby .

After something like this happens ( we have all had a crash or two or three ) ---- i have said to myself " if I did not like this hobby so much , I would have quit years ago " I still enjoy it .

Been watching your rebuild ----- nice job my rebuild was not as much work , and is ready to go again .

Ray

Hi Jack;

Yes I had a lot of fun this past summer with the Checkmate It is a Sunday flyer , just what I wanted . I am not a 3-D flyer . On the rebuild of it , after the dead stick , it flys a good as ever . ( must have got the right and down thrust right on when I made the new fire wall )

On the 2nd kit , that I had for sell ---- it went to a modeler from Edmonton . I met him at Camrose , and he took it . Mark phoned me back all ready and says he loves the kit .

Ray

Re: **New** 50cc Checkmate from Aero-Works

Hi All;

I see today my build on the Checkmate has over 10,000 posts . When I started it in Feb. 2013 , I did not think it would do that .

Would like to hear from any one that built this kit , and your thoughts on it and how you think it preforms in the air .

I had a very good summer (2014 ) with mine , and will enjoy it again this coming summer .

Ray
