2015 PSS FEST GROUP BUILD Sign Up
Please Post if you want in!
It's that time again. The 2015 PSS Fest group build is coming soon. In order for you slow pokes to have any chance of getting a plane finished we need to get this started early!
This year, after much consideration the choice is the Boeing B-17. You probably have seen them fly or even been spanked by one when flying half pipes. These are sweet flying planes (the primary reason it was chosen). Flight performance is similar to the Zephyr, actually a little better. The big fin really keeps this plane tracking nicely. Plus there are soooo many cool scale paint schemes.
The plug is in the process of being updated. A large canopy and fuse deck has been added (like the Zero and Aircobra) and the vertical stab has been added to the fuse. The Span is 56" and these normally weight about 50oz when build with Balsa sheeting. But with the longer span they fly like a much lighter plane.
Since a new mold will need to be made and Dan has not made any of these yet he does not have the final fuse cost. It will depend on how much material and work is involved in the fuse layup. I think we will do short kits again (fuse, hatch, cores, plans). The cost for the kit is $150. Anyone that needs a kit shipped needs to work that out with ISRDAN.
Paypal your payment (gift to friend) to email@example.com
Please include your REAL Name and RCgroups name!
Lets shoot for mid November for delivery and first group build day, that gives everyone about 7 months for finish a plane.

If you care to see the thread on the Plug "remodel" it's here
And here's a really poor quality Video of some great flying.
What is the E.T.A. on the plug? It was oh so close on my last visit .
Canít wait to get started. I will post a lot of pics so everyone can follow along as we bring her back to life.
My goal this time is to hand everyone a finished fuse primed with a fitted hatch, deck plate, and mounting bolt for extra lead.
All you will have to do is build the wing, horizontal tail, and paint.
Haha! Greg, is a group build day happening? Or are we all gonna build in our own shops and post pics and give each other crap here, or both?
I will have Mark do something like glue the wing to fuse, of course I will check it when he is done
Looking forward to a bomber, so cool.
I can paint.........
