Hello from Scott in Powell, TN.

I am nearly 50 years old, prior military, nearly 20 years engineering experience. Very handy in the realms of electrical/mechanical/electronics, but NOT so confident with WOODWORKING.

I don't mind driving to meet you for some R/C aircraft related BUILDING/FLYING/trading/buying/selling.

I am SEEKING an EXPERIENED BALSA KIT BUILDER for some genuine tips & help!! I have assembled and set up many partially pre-built ARF's, AWARFs and Helicopters...but I have NEVER BUILT A BALSA KIT (nor scratch building). I have a few balsa kits to build, including 1/2A, profile and also a beautiful glider with no printed plans. If you can offer some building help, I can pay you some cash or throw some kits or parts your way.

AS AN ADDED BONUS, I will soon have access to a WIDE OPEN and SECLUDED PRIVATE FIELD where NO AMA membership card or club dues are required. We can go flying without the crowded field or long list of rules...if you don't mind taking a ride down to Madisonville, TN with me.

I have some R/C airplanes, helicopters, nitro engines, brushless motors, ESC's, props and more for trade.

I have a PHOENIX DOLPHIN Mk2 ARF available. This gorgeous yellow & blue taildragger sport plane is still new in the box...and it INCLUDES the new replacement set of ESCAPADE LANDING GEAR, which bolts in place with no modifications and it totally corrects the nose-over problems associated with the factory supplied main landing gear. Did I mention it is a BEAUTIFUL plane? This baby would really scream, when fitted with my Super Tigre GS45ABC and Jett performance exhaust!!

I have some smaller brushless outrunner motors and ESC's as well.

I have 2-cycle glow engines, from .09 to .50 cubic inches. I have MORE THAN ENOUGH engines for my current list of projects, so some of them will be traded or sold off. I also have some extra mufflers, performance exhaust headers and tuned pipes.

I have some brand new HEAVY DUTY and UV PROTECTED 5 Liter (1.3 gallon) red plastic fuel containers, which are PERFECT for mixing gallons of nitromethane fuel with various additives (castor, synthetics, nitro content booster). Unlike the commonly available fuel jugs, these are designed to take up very minimal horizontal space.

I also have a lot of extra nitro/gas propellers in the following sizes: 10x6P, 11x5, 11x6, 11x8, 12.25x3.75, 12x5, 12x6, 12x7, 12x8, 13x6, 13x8, 14x5, 14x6, 14x8. Brands are APC, Dynathrust, Master Airscrew, Testors, Top Flite and Zinger.

Just send me a message so we can start doing some great BUILDING, FLYING and TRADING!!! Thanks, Scott
