    Ed really has his hands full these last couple years. I miss hearing from him. He's a good man.

    Yes, me too. Hope he's flying the daylights out of that Cub.

    Lots of good people on this site.

    Ed Fisher is still recovering from his broken leg, but is able to walk on it again and is working in his shop. He is making progress on the J3 as well as a Supercub.

    Got to visit Ed last fall. Great guy and what a shop but a lot to keep up with. Glad to hear the leg is on the mend.
    Best,
    Dave

    I'm not on this site much. I was making good progress on the Bearhawk until a little over 2 years ago, when we decided to move. I live at the same airpark as Ed now. Haven't touched the Bearhawk since the move, but bought a GP4 and also flying a Champ. I really need to get back to the Bearhawk....

    Thanks, One of your neighbors is an old friend of Dallas's and we used to fly RC with your neighbor when he lived in WV. We knew you moved there very shortly after you moved.
    Love to see the Bearhawk flying.

    Yes, Tony has mentioned flying RC and Dallas a few times.

    I’m planning to get re-started on the Bearhawk soon. This last year has been difficult with my father’s cancer and funeral. He was hoping to see the Bearhawk fly. He’ll have to watch from a little higher viewpoint now.
