    Jay and I have both been on RCPowers for many years, but about 5 years ago we began our FRCFoamies partnership and we've really loved the support Dave and Shannon and the members of RCPowers have given us! Jay is from the UK and I'm from PA, so in summer of 2013 Jay flew out to the US and brought the plans to our F15 mkII which we build together in my basement.

    A couple days later we drove down to Maryland to JettaManDan's fly in where we flew with Dan, Chip( FED5OH) and BJ (AsSoulsDream)- Awesome time flying especially night flying several Alpha Jets at the same time...

    We also took a tour of the Patuxent River Naval Air Station which gave us inspiration for several planes including our F18 and especially our Boeing X32 Guppy!

    Last summer my wife and I visited Jay, his wife and kids in the UK and we got to fly together again when we released the Mig 29 twin prop..

    Trying to convince Jay that he needs to bring his wife and kids back for a 5th anniversary visit and, of course, Dan can organize another JettaManDan fly in!
    On behalf of FRCFoamies, I'd like to thank Dave and Shannon for the opportunity they've given us on the forum, and we'd like to thank all the members on RCPowers that support us. Looking forward to an AWESOME 2018!

    That was one of the most fun weekends ive ever had. The night flying was a blast. As well as Introducing Jay to some american Japaneese food...and some BBQ! I kept track and i went through 120 charged lipos! We flew almost non stop and i remember being so totally exhausted and sunburnt after that weekend I had to report to work late on the monday and shotgun advil all day! Lol!

    I do hope we can get another GTG in this year. And have a blast once again. Ive been on RCP for 9 years now...and enjoyed every minute of it!

    Congrats on the anniversary FRC!

    It was 6 years ago that i had spent the entire summer building and wrecking a simple f-22 profile foamy over and over again at a rate of about 1 week.... but oh boy did I learn a lot in all that. I was determined I am going to fly.

    While researching model aircraft 5 years ago I stumble upon the RCP site and was impressed that I didn't see all the negative effect criticism and arguments that would tend to run over most other message boards. Help and genuine concern for someone posting even a stupid question was something new to me but... i quickly got comfortable with that much.

    First RCP and then absorbing FRC under the same group played very well for me. Being just a ordinary user guy on the end, I was who benefited from the coordinated efforts and of course it created.
    .... more planes
    ... big improvements in design.
    ... better construction
    ... improved finished appearance.

    ... and yet they even flew better than expected upon each new release.

    With continued new products releases, changes in construction materials and method of design ... It still remains a developing science. You have my attention and thank you.

    Excellent work gang and I've had a pretty exciting ride so far.

    Yes! Feels longer actually because Jay and I have been chit chatting on rcpowers since 2010 but it's been official for 5 years.
