Model Aviation Links
(Or miniature aircraft if you prefer)


I tend to be most interested in sailplanes, electric planes, and other things that fly gracefully and quietly. Here are some links to some other (mostly) like-minded sites.

My Kadet Senior... R.I.P. My beloved, dearly-departed Kadet Senior. Whaley's Comet had a bomb drop and was immortalized by legendary IRKS newsletter editor Andy Schott as "The Famous Flying Flaming Eyeball"

Quiet Flight Suppliers

Hobby Lobby
High-quality stuff from good folks who understand electrics and soaring well. The catalog is great!!

Dave Sanders is a very nice and helpful guy and his EPP airplanes look, fly and bounce great!
