1954 Y-Bar by Tony Brooks.
My version of Tony's 40in pylon power freeflight model using a DC Sabre 1.5.
Weighs 180 grams at the moment. Will use a Seelig Mini power timer.
I should think mine will end up over 200 grams finished. Tony Brooks had one of his in 1954 finished at 6oz.....Must have used very light wood with careful building.
I know of two others here, an Elfin 1.5 won our Aussie vintage power at the Nationals in 1998, and another with a Webra Rekord 1.5 that I've been told is a "crazy thing". Guess it's overpowered.
Will be a few weeks before it's finished so hope to give it a fly before Christmas.
