Some of us are thinking this might be their best year ever in flying RC. I know that's what I'm thinking. I'm still trying to figure out my flying goals for the year but post what you want to accomplish this spring and summer. We'll review this in September.

What ya gonna work on?
What do you want to try for the first time or perform sucessfully?
What do you want to master (do it w/out thinking about it or being worried)?
What do you wan to buy?
