General Discussion / Top Flite, sign of the times?
« on: July 27, 2018, 08:15:28 PM »
Looks like Top Flite is discontinuing it's line of kits, I guess most modelers or should I say flyers are choosing arfs now, sad to see but at least people are still flying.

Nice. Hey what's that yellow thing tail up in the water?  :P :laugh: ;D

Some guy who thought he was doing a remake of "We all live in a yellow submarine" and got a bit carried away. Stay tuned ... perhaps he will do a re-take at the next float fly.

It is with deep sadness that I must  announce that Old Yeller has gone to the great hanger in the sky, she was a wonderful friend and will be deeply missed.
Now onto other planes, as you may know (or maybe not) O'le  horseshoe McDwayne won another plane  :laugh:  :P :laugh:  :P :laugh:  A Trainstar foamie, it has a 55": span and wouldn't ya know it Leading edge had some foam floats in stock so we shall see what happens.  8) ;D

Buy the lightest colour you can from Balsa USA and paint it.

That is the other option, I can do that with 21rst Century fabric covering, and another option is to just not crash again, but hey  8) :laugh: :P

I've tried everywhere as has Leading Edge, the factory that made it has shut down with no plans to make it elsewhere, Balsa USA has some  colours left but no OD green. Coy sent me an email saying he may have some so there is hope. Until then I better not park her

Nice. Hey what's that yellow thing tail up in the water?  :P :laugh: ;D

Never ordered there before so I can't vouch for them...

Thanks Jason, tried to order from them last week but couldn't, I did a google search and it looks like they are out of business

Please I need to rebuild the wing center sections of my DVIII as it had a bit of a rough take off.  >:( :'( :-[ 
Thank you

My first solo flight with the DVIII, she takes off straight and true, fly's rock solid with no bad habits at all, when Rolly did the first maiden she went nose over on the landing so I removed a bit of weight from the nose, don't know if it did anything but it flairs in for a perfect landing. I think I'll keep her.  ;D  8) :P
Thank you to Glen for the great video.  ;D

The crowd was hushed, tense with anticipation,will she fly or come crashing down,  ah no they weren't  :laugh: :P  But I was nervous as hell so I gave the pleasure of it's maiden to Rolly, I shouldn't have worried it flew right off the board I don't even know if he had to set the trims, fly's great wish I  had more video but I lost site of her after take off. To say I'm happy would be a major understatement,  ;D 8) :P

WOOHOOO!!!!!  She needed a couple of primes but once I got her going and running for a while she starts up no prob now.  ;D :o 8) :P ;) :D ;D 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
