"The original Cloud Dancer by Fred Reese"

Larry Neiman's Cloud Dancer

If you are new to scratch building your airplanes or if you just want something to build this winter you should check out this airplane and Larry's build. He has supplied the plans and instructions but better than that he is telling about each part of the build and the pit falls he has discovered in the instructions. Like covering the wing from the top spar forward before you drill and pin the landing gear mounting block. Larry is a second generation model builder. Some of you might have been lucky enough to purchase one of the planes his father built. If you did it's easy to see where some of Larry's talent comes from. This article is worth a look.

Here is a link to Larry's Cloud Dancer

Please Take Your TRUST Exam Now.

AMA has been approved to administer The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST). AMA has worked closely with the FAA to ensure that TRUST meets the intent of Congress without placing an undue burden on our hobby community. The TRUST Exam is free to take, so be cautious of any site that has a fee associated with taking the exam. Additionally, some sites might offer to send you a laminated copy of your TRUST completion certificate for a fee. There is no requirement to purchase these cards. There is no set deadline to take TRUST, but the FAA recommends taking the test as soon as practical.

For any additional questions regarding TRUST, visit AMA’s TRUST FAQ.
