Father and Son build Complete!

Hey all! My son Dylan and I are excited to share our winter build project we recently completed.  I wanted to share with my son the experience of actually building a kit, versus an ARF.  Indeed, I did end up doing a majority of the project myself ( it’s the age of instant gratification ya know), but Dylan still has enough ownership in the airplane to give a hoot.

Our project plane is the Great Planes Piper Cub, .40 size.  I figured the cub was a great classic trainer to be his first gasser, and he tends to like scale airplanes the most.  We have powered it with an ASP .61FSR 4 stroke, added some scale goodies like Robart main gear, and control it with a Futaba 6J system and a Hitec XG3XA, 3-axis stabilizer to smooth it out. By the way, I highly recommend the Hitec Gyro!  It’s only $30 and works really well, especially in foamies!

Covering is 21st Century Fabric, pre painted in Cub Yellow.

If you care to see more of the project, I wrote a thread on RC Universe for the whole project : Forum Link

We have flown the plane, and so far it flies really well!  Even Dylan has some time on the sticks and he loves it!

Here are some pictures of the completed Cub, Dylan took all of the inflight photos, he’s getting pretty good at those! :

Flying the Friendly Skies

On June 18, 2015 a group of 10 Adults supported by Bethesda Lutheran Communities visited the Miniature Aero Sportsters (MAS) in Brighton Colorado for a day of learning about remote controlled airplanes and were given opportunities to fly the planes.

It was the first time Bethesda’s Castle Rock Day Program had visited the site and their first attempt at remote control aviation. George Kerr, MAS member, had invited the group to join him and other MAS members who delighted in sharing this sportster activity and in teaching others how remote control airplanes work.

Smiles, cheers, laughter and clapping were heard frequently throughout the morning and afternoon as the individuals were able sail their individual aircrafts high into the sky. Zach told the group he wanted to get a plane like this for his birthday. Jenny was intent upon her plane doing a loop-de-loop as it went by. Jordan just couldn’t get enough and wants to be sure to come back soon to fly all over again.

Bethesda Lutheran Communities provides services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Colorado, in a variety of residential and day service settings.. MAS provided a daytime outing of learning and fun all rolled into one. The MAS club also provided lunch and refreshments for the group.

New friendships were made and new skills were learned. It was a beautiful day of sharing and enjoying a time in the friendly skies over Colorado.

Bethesda Ministries supports more than 2000 people with developmental disabilities throughout the United States. To learn more about Bethesda visit us at www.BethesdaLutheranCommunities.org or call 303-795-2061.

Serving the Northeast Denver Area the Miniature Aero Sportsters (MAS) flying site sits on 48 acres with a 500 foot paved runway. The club is open to all who have a current AMA membership. MAS consist of a group of individuals with a common interest in radio control aircraft. – See more at: http://www.miniatureaerosportsters.org/mas_info/#sthash.TaDQvlnb.dpuf
