Sorry to say that 15 minutes you took to dream that up was worth my seconds.

i totally agree :lol: :lol: your sig always cracks me up

i think blg sounds both funner (lol) and less fun than ws
more fun: don't have to bother with prop and such blah
less fun: it doesn't go by itself: a ws plane looks so much cooler if it works right

build it out of wood, not metal.... get a kit, usually they work pretty well, just make sure you don't rush building it

yes do please build it out of a kit and out of wood(especially balsa wood)
I can't wait for this event to come back!!
My team rules at this type of event!!!

Funny story: One of my former teammates(who is now on stroudsburg High School team) made an airplane. It did loop de loops all the time so we wrote a list of side effects(like death, loss of blood, loss of extremities, Broken bones, etc) pretty funny actually cause it always crashed head first into the ground and never broke!!!

Let's not bump threads about non-current events unless there's something useful to add.

Huh? BLG isn't an event next year in B or C division, thus you won't find much discussion on it.

There's no reason to bump an old thread unless there is something of substance to add.

Nothing wrong with discussing a non-current event if it's a legitimate discussion, but useless posts aren't necessary.
