yep, had one. About the same time as my first C/L. A Cox PT-19. Moved on to building "Lil Satans". Good times. First ones were dope and tissue before I started swiping my dad's monokote while he was at work... Those TD's were a mother to start with no spring, but once you got them going, wholy crap were they fast!!! Good times. Then I discovered girls.....

I was also out riding my 78 Frontera 370, this bike was sickly quick, and would pull the front off the ground in 5th gear by simple twisting the throttle

Yea but I forget the details.

Speaking of bikes... In 1985 I had this Yammy RD 350. It would do a wheelstand in sixth gear..

always wanted a 2 stroke street bike. You'll find an old RD once in a while in the classifieds. I'd really like to find an RZ 350 Kenny Roberts Special from the early/mid 80's. Had a Banshee motor in it. Those things were whicked fast. Had a deposit on a new one and wifey getting preggers with our first ended that dream.

the RZ350 did not have a Banshee motor, the Banshee ended up with the RZ motor about the time the RZ disappeared, Yamaha made a great choice when they made that move, best sand machine ever built, how can you compete with 2 power pulses per revolution.

yeah, I couldn't remember if it was the chicken or the egg first. I've ridden MANY Banshees, most of them heavily modded race machines. I used to race hare scrambles (2 wheels) and a few guys in our local club rode chairs and most of them had Banshees. What a rush they were. I can only imagine what that must be like on asphalt. I can pick out the sound of a Banshee from a country mile...
The RZ I was going to buy was showroom new, but the guy that bought it, did so and had them upgrade the carbs, put on race pipes, race pegs etc., then went to pick it up and ride it around the block. He brought it back white as a sheet, parked it and gave it back and took a bath on the sticker. Almost had it at sticker price with about 1500 in mods done to it. It probably would've killed me back then.....

busyflyin,
I had a couple friends who had the .40 size. All of mine were .60 size because I wanted collective pitch. I really liked that helicopter. No gyros, just busy thumbs. Also had a couple HeliBoys at this same time period. I had pretty much just changed from Heathkit and World RC to Kraft radios at the time that photo was taken. Here's another heli from the same time. OS Max .60 SFR w/ tuned pipe.

I wish I had pics of my dad's first heli. The old Du-Bro Hughes 300 with the pull start weed eater motor. Metal hoops for flybar paddles, fuse carved out of solid wood. He messed with that for a couple years and never got it more than 6 inches off the deck. Never forget that thing.
