Everyone one of those planes would put any ARF to shame...however with time seeming so ever precious anymore there are some dandy ARF's to get you started while you build your kit.

How's the crops coming along?
Sorry Jack, missed this post! Yeah I have 2 decent and one Ok victim to fly while I procrastinate. One area I don't see a lot of discussion on is the Comp ARFs. Knowing yours sure flew well (rolled it inverted 20' off the turf on the maiden flight)

Crops. Was in Toon town on Saturday so I got to see the comparison. From here to 50 miles up the road they're doing good. From there NE they are late! BUT, the price outlook might keep me cautious about going over-board on a plane!

Yup I can testifiy to Jacks Carden experience, not sure if it's his first one he had built, but it's one of them and still going strong, even after eating a warbird for a snack.

Brent, this is the cowl that I was telling you I covered, instead of painting, it was a big job but worth it in the end.

Yes, most Comp's do fly well. Best one I've run across for IMAC is the 2.6m Yak 55. But you have to accept what you get.

A lot of the gents you flew with have been doing IMAC for quite some time. They are very talented and know what changes they want to do individually to their new airframes.

But a very well set up ARf will get you a long way in flying and learning what you want in a personal build.

Have I pointed out how much more friendly you (Jack) have been, well since the cleansing has started.
