Well here goes another building season of wishful thinking. Out of the 8 items on last year's building list I got 2 1/2 of them done! So lets hope we all get around to it this winter!

1) Assemble my Dave Patrick Edge 540T still in the box from last spring and get the DA50 installed and setup with radio gear.

2) Detail and do the installation of my DA100 in the 1/3 scale Hostler Edge 540 and complete the setup of the Multiplex Radio system.

3) Assemble the Pheonix Sukhoi with Saito 1.50 and get radio setup done!

4) Finish the repair on my old Goldberg Sukhoi and build the wing kit with the Saito 1.80 and install radio gear!

5) At least have all the parts cutout ready to start building my Vallencourt Hawker Hurrican 1/5 scale.

6) Finish at least one of the 4 electric projects I want to build and setup!

I also have a couple of other projects to do but if I get have of this stuff done before spring I will be happy!

So heres hoping fellows and good luck with all your projects this winter!

I don't have too much planned for this winter. For myself, I hope to build my lazy bee powered by an o.s. La 15.

I'm also building a plane for Andrew this winter (I traded him some stuff in exchange for building this). It's a fun fly plane called the "wacky-bee 3". It's looks like it will be tons of fun. Other than that I don't really have any other big projects. I'd like to do some more free-flight planes this winter and maybe another control-line later on. I might try to design a plane for the 1/2a contest on rc universe, but I'm not sure yet!

I'm still going into science fair and I have to kick it up a notch now that I'm in the senior grades. That means I'll have to take time away from the hobby for that .

School has already taken lots of my time. This is my first post here in a LONG time! Now I'm starting to get back into a regular habit and finding a little more time to come here.

Uggg, that's enough of me, back to school...

Wow, where did summer go???

Well, my projects are:

1.) build Brian Taylor Hawker Typhoon #2, this one the weight watchers version

2.) fix up some aileron problems on a Brian Taylor Harvard

3.)rebuild the front end of a 1/8 scale Ron Daniels Hawker Typhoon

4.) rebuild fuselage of a 1/12 Ron Daniels Hawker Tempest II

Too much rebuilding IMHO.
