Meet up?
« on: March 27, 2012, 10:49:25 AM »
Okay, so I think we've all been wanting a meetup day where we can fly/drive/hover/crash/hobby store/parts wall, so when's a good time for everyone? Prolly during the daytime would be nice, so we have sunlight to fly around outside in, and whatnot. I can bring the 120SR, possibly the 450 3D if i get it by then and don't crash it into the ground. (Simulator should help, just got Phoenix)

Also, a trip to a hobby store might be cool.. Graves? Bob's?

Monday, Tuesday or Thursday evenings work best. I can also do weekends with enough notice. Let me know if you need a calendar event put up, but we might want to keep it small for now.

Well, not a public thing, members only, but afaik just myself, you, and f00bard are the only ones who are gonna be doing it.. if there are other members into RC though they are welcome. It'd be cool to have a little 'intro to RC flying' thing too, we have some cheap small helis and I could get a slow foamie plane that we could do some beginner stuff on.. we could learn, then teach others.

I want to start flying fixed wing. Been eyeing the ultra micro Corsair and the Champ. Getting orientation down with helis we could do on an mCX2 or the Syma s107 ($20, IR TX/RX).

My roomie just got a Hobbyzone Super Cub LP. It's a great trainer plane, it doesn't go super fast and is really easy to control, and hard to mess up.

I met a guy at a car show in New Smyrna who runs a business selling RC jets & parts which is supposedly one of the biggest in the biz.  He seemed interested in having a similar event for members of a car club that might be interested in flying jets, so maybe he'd be interested in doing something for FamiLAB too.  Maybe someone here who's into RC planes knows of his website already.

Looks like we have a preliminary day for our first RC meet up, this Saturday at the lab. Any other members wanna join in? There were a couple people flying my helicopter last night who seemed to enjoy it. I'll have that.. and maybe something bigger.
