Who's was it that had the chunk taken out of the rotor? Also, is there any way to mount a camera on an RC plane? I'm thinking of saving up for one, and I want to see it from the pilot's POV. Plus, a miniature dogfight would be cool.

I'm still partial to Tomcats, even if the flying drumstick has paid more bills.

@ Dave

I would find that unlikely, it's 30 years old and a plane that is sadly no longer flying. Well except for those few birds.

Yep. I thought about that, too. Can't wait for EAA this year. Because they get too crowded in Oshkosh, they base FiFi out of the Appleton airport, and a Huey, a P-51 two seater, decorated for the Tuskegee Airmen, and a Dauntless SBD Dive bomber out of my local airport for rides. Last year, I rode in the Huey, this year, the SBD!
