RC Planes

My first RC plane was back in '76 while still in school, it was a Cessna Skyhawk made by Guillow's [it's still being made ]. It was originally made for U-Control but with the help from my older brother, we convert4ed this to Radio Control.

I'm hoping to get back into this hobby real soon because I miss this. The last time I did any RC flying was 20yrs ago now. It was a Big Stik with a .40 engine but I had a old RC radio that was weak so my range was very short. I lost control when it was about 100 yards away and it nose dived  into the ground [photo] - ouch ! -
