    I tried opening the Raptor and it asked for a password. Do you know what it is or do you have to buy it?

    Howdy guys,

    well looks like modano1 beat me to it, buthere it is anyway the password is......... ojimak

    And here is a tip:
    when you need a password or are looking for one that you know should be on the site, go to www.google.com, and on the right side of the "search box", click "language tools" and then go to the "translate webpage" and insert the desired web address into the box and chose your translation. This time it was japanese beta to english.
    Below is a direct link to the google translation page:

    http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en

    Hope this helps,

    Greg aka GW

    Speaking of Trotskiy's page, how often does he rotate? I'm looking forward to the Vampire.

    Howdy guys,

    Trotskiy usually rotates his model about every thirty days, some times more often sometimes less often.
    As for this site, from what I gathered by reading the english translation, all of these models will eventually be availible for download.

    have a good day,

    Greg aka GW

    Just looking at these models it looks like they were designed to be able to fly. Am I right?

    Flying planes

    Probably flying planes...not just because I read it such as you, but because you can see the pattern for the hook her and there, to allow catapulting them by means of a rubber band.
    I am building the Concorde, and I hope it flies!

    For six months, I am addicted to flying planes...how long will it last?

    I reckon you only mean flying models and not in a real airplane but as a guy who almost has his private pilots license I can tell you that the thrill I get as the airplane lifts off (no matter if it's in an airliner as a passenger or the 172 I fly) never gets old. And a good flight is worth a couple days of the walking on air feeling, at least for me.8)

    Hope your checkride goes well! Don't get nervous about it. I've had my license for about a year and a quarter now and I still feel the same way.

    being a pilot....

    I always thought that i'd fly a plane, but one thing led to another....I didn't got to college, so being a military pilot kind went by the wayside...then, after many helocopter, plane and boat rides I came to the stunning conclusion that I suffer from severe motion sickness...what a freakin drag....but I have always felt that if I were in the front of the plane, controlling the motions and having a good perspective of the horizon, that I would be able to pilot an aircraft......any ohter pilots out there who can't be a "back-seater"?

    Well Doc there is a program, I don't know who sponsors it called the Discovery Flight. For about $60 US (in the US) you can get a 30 minute fligth lesson to see how you like it. You get to do some flying and it counts for time in your logbook. Most flight schools that I know of are involved and it's a good way to get people hooked on flying.

    As far as getting motion sick even Chuck Yeager had that problem when he started out. He puked all over the back seat of the plane he flew in the first time. So there is a good possibility that you could get over it.
