Hi Aarsalo

Supporting your local hobby store even if it is in Kitchener is a good thing to do. The Kitchener club is a big club with lots of experts and good flyers in it. You can find names and addresses on the MAAC web site. Just google MAAC and you'll come up with the site. Go to "links" as that will take you to a list of the clubs.

I'd volunteer, but I'm too far away. I live in Merrickville, just southwest of Ottawa.

Cheers and good flying.

aarsalo: I have a GWS Beaver (NIB - c/w motor and gearbox/prop) and a 30A GWS speed controller with ESC (ICS-600-FP) also NIB for sale. My sister lives in Guelph, and she's visiting this weekend - I could send them up there with her. Call it $100 for the package. All you'd need would be batteries and a charger. Send a PM if interested.

get the tigermoth

I don't know how active this thread is, but here's my $0.02. The pico moth is best for indoor flyers - it can fly at 7 miles per hour! It is only three channel, so you can use a very cheap radio. It will fly for 45 minutes on a 40 dollar lipo battery - but you will need a good charger in that case. You have to check out http://www.backyardflying.com where you can get the airplane with the engine for only 69 dollars! You can make that on a bottle drive. Then you need a simple controller. A hitec focus III Am with micro servos would do - you could get a used one for maybe 50. You need a battery or two, another 80. And the simplest and cheapest charger that is any good is the same as I use, the Hitec MKII, which is also about 60. So for the set up (airplane takes about two hours to assemble) you won't come in under 300 unless you catch a break. Remember that for indoor you need the smallest micro servos you can get - 6 to 9 grams. Ah yes, one more thing - you will need a speed control, which will run about 30. Chekc out backyard flying and do keep in mind you don't need a brushless controller, just a Pixie 20 will do.

Thank you to all that posted responces. Just so that you know that we decided to go with a new aircraft called a slo-V I think. It seems to take a beating fairly well it can run in to things whit out to much damage since the wing is made of styrofoam.
