RE: [Airchairgroup] Where have all the Models Gone?
- Dave and airchair friends,
I apologize for spamming the group. In the future I will limit my messages here to strictly airchair related content. I respect your feelings on this matter so much I even wrote a blog about it:
This is the last link I will send the group that is not related to airchairs. Again I am very sorry for spamming you and it will not happen in the future.

We are getting of topic gentlemen. Let strive to keep this site about airchair construction & airchair flying. I for one don't wish to wade through other stuff.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end.
- Interesting though , has Anyone tried to do a scale RC GOAT, BUG or PIG ? That might be a real good starting point for anyone seriously looking to build a full size. I have a PIG on the drawing board with a 4 ft wing span .
- I think it would be a very fun model. What would you use to build it aluminum?
