Not sure what I'm doing?
Well, after I hung things up for a while(i think the last time I flew was in 2003) I finally started going through all my stuff again. Things have changed so much that I fill I don't know the hobby anymore. I just wanted to see what others that are currant have to say about some of the gear I still have and if it's worth anything?

For starters: I have a brand new JR 9503 with a few receivers. Some fataba 401 gyros. JR 8311 servos and a bunch of fataba 9202's. An all carbon framed Vario Benzin with lot's of extra parts and 2 gas engines. A vario cobra fuse. A Robbe Futura SE with a ys 91.

I have more but I think that's good to start with. I would really appreciate your feedback.

I guess it depends on what type of flying you want to do..I haven't been flying Nitro's cause the fuel just got too expensive; If you can afford it you might try a flybarless model in the 500-570 size range..from my own experience switching to the newer type models (Logo 550) about 6 yrs. ago really renewed my interest and has kept me looking forward to weekend flying! I do a great decending funnel!

It's a little bit old, but nothing wrong with that gear...especially for scale. With what you have, nothing has really changed. Sure, there's high-voltage servo setups and flybarless technology to get your head around. But, we still have guys flying gear as old as yours at the field every weekend.if it ain't broke, break it.

Welcome back

I still fly equipment from the 1980s. My two X-Cell Tempest are as much fun to fly as when I built them decades ago. Yes. A lot has changed but your equipment is still viable.

You mentioned you have JR 8311s available. I flew my Raptor .30 last weekend and as I logged the time on my computer, I notice the throttle servo on that model is an 8311 with 71 hours flight time. That servo has likely been in use since you last flew.

Sooo... Build it and fly it. Parts are increasingly difficult to find so fly carefully. If you want to fly hard and crash a lot, build something more modern.

Thanks for all the input! Good to hear that I don't have obsolete stuff as fare as my radio which is actually a 9503. I knew my Vario Benzin is still hard to beat but parts for my Robbe Futura SE are going to be more than difficult. I'm going to have to get to know a few 3-D printer guy's.
