Joe your contribution and dedication to this hobby has been second to none. And your threads are iconic will be read for years to come by our kids etc.
If we raffle a D plane , I'm sure we could get a good contribution for a D160 build.
. April is coming
and we all would love to hear the boom of a D160 through the shear @ 500..
It must cost an arm and a leg to build one of these..?? At least we could make a difference..
Just thinking out loud.
That's a pretty cool idea Tim. Would really make a difference for me. Things for me are a bit different than when I started the project. I do happen to have a beautiful red/white/blue D80 (one of a kind) that might be perfect to generate some funding. I think I have enough carbon but need lots of resin and other supplies. The servos will likely be the biggest ticket item. Would be fun to get the latest greatest servos that will finally work in this plane and share the build here once again. It's gonna be a ton of work though. Gotta get my head around it. Gears are turning.
Have a couple builds I need to finish for people first. That will help me knock the rust off.
