Hi, I created this blog for my passion for anything that flies! In particular, I’m very interested in the hobby of RC plane flying and its extreme version..long range flying.
So why Icarus? well as we all know Icarus was the unlucky one who fell when he ‘flew’ too high resulting in his ‘wings’ melting due to the heat of the sun — gorilla glue hasnt been invented yet obviously =), so why Icarus and not Daedelus (i.e. the one who survived). Well to make it short, Daedelus is just too square.. Icarus is the guy who tried to push the envelope and although he failed, he is the Test Pilot of myth, the first Top Gun.
Through this site I’ll document methods, tools, off-the-shelf RC equipment, flights and hopefully not that many crash landings =) sharing the passion and safely pushing the limits of RC flight!
