We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks. We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.
LARKS Mission Statement
To promote model aircraft building and flying as a family oriented hobby, to freely and openly share what we have collectively learned and experienced, and to provide an enjoyable, friendly and safe environment for our fellow hobbyists and guests.

A terrific discussion and comparison of various connectors by RC Helicopter Fun.Com
I was researching what connector was safe to use at up to 120 amps and found this site. Using their advice, I went with XT-90's.
The update discusses enforcement of rules for Airspace Safety.
James and Walt have persuaded me (Dave) to graduate from the Sig Kadet Senior to something larger and more aerobatic. James has flown Extreme Flight Products for a couple of years, and suggested I try them out.
I wanted something semi-scale and have always liked the Laser 200, so I chose Extreme Flights 74 inch offering. Having just viewed the Laser online at the Smithsonian, I decided not to use all of the Extreme Flight graphics but find some graphics to make the plane look more like Leo's Laser (see Link of the Month and Link to Callie Graphics. Callie provided Leo's Graphics for a very reasonable price). Radio still the Spektrum 9 channel.
Above is the ARF kit pieced together (nothing is glued at this point). Once the plane is built, graphics go on. As I progress, I will update.
