I'm that bad example that Dave and Scott are talking about, started with a Nitroplanes A-10 twin 55mm fans (on simulator with that plane I did well)...30 seconds later I was left with cheap electronics, HA!

i have the same plane and it sucks..totally underpowered...


I started off about 22 years ago building a balsa glider in aero shop class..got it to fly for about 30 seconds...then hit a goal post...quit after that...

4 years ago my 1st build was a F-22 V1...and i haven't looed back..40+ planes to my credit so far..so really i do credit foamies as my 1st real planes....

My first ever RC plane is the F22v2. It's my trainer and I am currently the only guy in the club who flies one. The problem now is I got this annoying bug, see build, see build. Someone on the forum, on his tag line says " damn you RC Powers" and now I know why. F22v2, F18v2, Euro-fighter, BD5B all because of "Dave damn you Powers."
So I can truly say I started with foamies and likely continue to build them until I can't anymore. Hopefully that will be many years hence. And while I"m at it, thanks to all the guys here that have helped along the way, can't blame Dave and Scott for everything, or maybe I can........! GB.

Actually, everything around here is DAN's fault!
Yes, I've known that I'm "different" for some time now...

I started with the HK Bixler v1 RTF based on advice from RC Powers and FliteTest. Then built the F22 v2 as a first scratch build.

F22 v2 was my first plane


If you were inside your plane... You would never crash.

Clearly you've not seen me fly in my Microsoft Flight simulator.

How many started with flying foam jets?
My first experiance with a jet was; I had to take a thousand mile trip, and a jet was the easyest and quickest way to get there.

But if you're talking about RC, I started with foam.

Hawk sky was my first. Then I crashed and attempted to build the x32 and extra but the pars weren't very compatible. My first real foam jet had to be my f22v2 after many other planes built.

My 1st post. Dreamed about flying rc since I was a kid, but never could... A year ago my wife bought me a hobbyco mini cub and a week after I met a fellow who told me about this site. Started with the F22, and with complete joy i've built and crashed 3 of them. Now I'm flying the F117, F22, F18 (wrecked 2), 300, and just put together the F35. I never thought I would go this far this quick; just need more wall space in the garage. Thank you Powers and team.
Get out the way, papa lost control.

Started off with the GWS Slow Stick about 5 years ago, built a few scratchbuilt planes from EPP, then had to take a break from the hobby for a while dealing with life stuff, but had caught the parkjet bug then from watching all the original RC Powers videos.

Came back to the hobby in October 2012, bought and flew the Bixler 2 (one of the best investments I ever made in this hobby to get myself back into flying) for about 60 flights before touching a parkjet.

First depron parkjet was an RC Powers F35 V2 (still have that one...not pretty but so reliable...), since then I have built 9 parkjets, 7 of which are still surviving...like others I seek a 12 step program to help with my build addiction... or at least more "hangar" space to store my creations...

About 6 other projects on my "build list" now...
