I have been reading your website and enjoying it. I have learned alot and been able to start. I purchased a Sig Senior before you emailed me about the wind and ailerons. You got me to thinking about ailerons on the Senior and I found that the ARF Seniors do have them so I got in touch with Sig and found that I could purchase just the wing. Do they still call the unit you were in the army the Section 8 unit? I have gotten most of the stuff I needed to start my trainer.Thanks for all the help Phillip Curtis

"hey, great tips. your site is the best i\'ve been to. i got back into building free flight after many years (like you, the army took up a lot of my time) and i\'m finally trying to build my first scratch build. currently i am working on an old design by fred reese (the littlest stick). it should be done in a couple of days. it\'s going to be an electic park flyer. BTW i was in Kosovo the same time you were. you probably gave my company a brief when that guy ate the barrel of his weapon. he also ruined a good port-o-potty by putting a whole thru the roof. you got my email addy if you want to see some of my pics (over 500)"

"Lovely stuff - both the design of the site, and the content of the pages. I\'m thinking of getting back into the hobby after a long break (more than 20 years). What I liked most was building. What I liked least was noisy glow engines and fuel on everything, no matter how careful I was! So it\'s going to be electric for me in my retirement."

"I am looking at taking up model flying. Im in the UK and have been surfing the net for a couple of weeks to find out all I need to know. I stumbled upon your sight this evening by mere chance. Its a corker! You obviously love what you do and that comes across in your descriptions of projects. All the other parts of the site are fascinating as well. You sound like a very content gentleman, well done!!"

"I would like to reply to your comments on aerofoil sections for 3D models. The aim of these models is to fly relatively slowly so that transition in to hovering manouvers can be achieved low to the ground from any attitude. The symmetrical section obviously caters for the varied upright/inverted entry attitudes. The large radius leading edge and thick section (up around 15% or more) cater for the slower speeds and higher angles of attack as well as a profile drag component. This all has to do with what is occuring at the stagnation point (where the airflow has to decide to go either under or over the wing). The location of the thickest point from the leading edge also affects transition from laminar flow to turbulent flow and also the point when separation of the airflow would occur. This is dependant on the angle of attack but also the airspeed at that angle. Due to the low Reynolds numbers involved (our relatively small models) the transition points from laminar to turbulent flow MAY often be far further back than on a full size airofoil. Separation bubbles with reattachment may result and these bubbles may move around the surface of the wing in varying attitudes. This may explain why some of the more critical model wings become erratic on one day and not on another. I got a bit carried away with the techy stuff, but I hope it means something."

"Hi, I ran across your site while browsing for some items. I agreed with your profile of a modeler wholeheartedly. I worry we may be a dying breed. Keep the faith is all we can do. Your site will, no doubt, contribute to the continuation of our marvelous and fantastic hobby or if you prefer artform. Sincerely, Harold Yates in Pensacola Fla"
