Keith Paskewitz  "This shows my original Tigercat F-7F3 Forest Service plane with my Daughter & Son who are now grown".  It had a 60" wing and weighed 16 lbs.

Keith Paskewitz "I built this plane about 34 years ago with retracts operating tank for fire retardant & 2 Webra Speed .61's".

Keith Paskewitz  "I never did get the fire retardant drop to work right.  It kept leaking out before it was ready to be released.  This plane is now for sale in Lincoln for $900.00 the last I heard".

Keith Paskewitz  "This is my new Tigercat F-7F3 Forest Service plane with 52" wing & weighs 7 lbs. with battery.  It has 14 electric motors in it altogether plus gear doors.  I hope to get the fire retardant to work this time.

      I publish Metro Area R/C Flying to make a central web site for all the area R/C clubs, not to replace individual club sites, but to tie all of them together and promote growth and interaction between clubs. The most important service of the web site is to post the Metro Area Schedule. The schedule lists all the events for all the clubs in one location so that R/C flyers can see what events are available in the area and plan ahead. I believe it will also help the area clubs to work out their schedules so that a club event, will not conflict, with another club's event. The next most important service is to provide a Page that has maps to all the events, meetings, dinners and parties. Right after that comes the Newsletter Page which lists club newsletters. Reading other club newsletters lets members see what others are offering in the area that they are interested in and promotes interaction between clubs.  This is your web site, if you would like to show-off your newest plane, or share an experience, you can E-Mail pictures and articles to me at:  There’s an Email Link on every page.
