Airborns Texaco Event 2010 SAM Champs. L to R Kent Meglemry, Jay Burkart, Jack Hiner, Hank Gullet. I built 3 of these Airborns
My Texaco 1000 Sqin Airborn. Built for the 2010 contest season. Lighter airframe, better color scheme for thermaling. Was flying it at about 3500 ft per my altimeter. NEU motor, Aurora radio.
Electric Wakefield, Stahl Gypsy. Speed 300 with MP Jet Gearbox. Climbs like crazy. Thermals fairly well.
