EFlite Stearman

Obtained from a fellow Veterans Park flier.

My Aussie buddy John let me have this after he had three unsuccessful flights on it. I watched him each time he flew it and he'd struggle for about twenty seconds and then crash land it as best he could. (I filmed it, I should post it here) Turns out he didn't have enough weight up front and it was extremely tail heavy.

Luckily it survived, and he was through with it, so he just gave me the airframe and wished me luck. I was fortunate to just have to replace only the motor/cowling piece and repair a landing strut.

A beautiful and slow classic flyer. Really enjoyed this one...

(Update 1/1/2015, two of them are for sale NIB here on RCG... I'd get one again but I've got another classic bipe already on the way, though I know it's not going to look as good as this Stearman)
