Oh wow! I look at your avatar and see the questions you are asking and there is in my mind a HUGE disconnect between the two.

Goes to show how much the hobby has changed. I'm one of the old guys that came up through this hobby from free flight/rubber power to control line to build it from balsa RC. Now the progression is Foamy trainer RTF to ARF intermediate to 40% 3D in a matter of months!

So nice to see someone wanting to add some depth to their hobby experience. Good on ya mate!!!

That is me in a nut shell. I start December 2011 with helis and once the weather was nice bought the Apprentice trainer. For the next two years I was all foam electric until I put together a 50cc Pilot Yak but with a 12cell power system. A year ago spring a joined a new club and converted my Yak to an EME 60 gas setup and also got into Nitro. Now my fleet is 33% electric, 33% nitro and 33% gas. I have a couple of ARF to put together this winter but I want to try a pattern plane with retracts. I mind as well learn how these things get built. This is help me with future repairs.
