It was awesome to see a foamy that big fly around, Nice job Dan.
I wuz there and can testify that it did indeed fly. Women swooned and children cowered.

That was truly awesome to watch, Dan! As you said, it's all about the WOW factor! Here's my buddy Ethan's video.

This is as far as she got today. Ignition failed, only spark to one lead. Frustrated!
Had a good time flying Flop's extreme flight 50cc.

That is one seriously great looking SBach. I love the color comb. Who's the mfg. and what motor are you running in it. If you don't mind my asking that is.

A few problems out at KARCS with the maiden of Flarpy's Sbach, but we got the cobwebs off our radios and had some fun with the EF Edge. Flarpy will explain it all later on video.

Dog guy here, Couldn't help noticing the pup in the van. Looks a bit like my Layla that passed last year. Loved that dog a ton. Still have her litter mate Sasha. Layla is the tan one in my yin/yang avatar. It's great to be able to take the mutts to the field for a day of flying. (Hmm. maybe I shouldn't have opened that 2nd bottle of wine.... prolly shouldn't have finished it off even more.) I'd still like to know more about the SBach and motor setup.

You might be right about the wine! Where pup? Is there a pup in van?

Nate did have his dog with him, so you are a blind clairvoyant.

It's a DA-100 on stock mufflers I think, Nates probably in his garage figuring out what went wrong with his ignition wires.

Liberty, sorry to hear about your pup. That's tough!

The plane is the Gold Wing Sbach 342 V3 100cc. I bought it new from Valley View and have taken the last couple of years to build it... Jk.. Taken me about 5 months. I don't think they make em anymore so if you find one snatch it up.
I so wanted to maiden her today, but my ignition decided to go t.u. Flops right, motor is the DA 100 with stock cans.

The dog is Frasier, and he is a son of a gun. He's still a pup, and is the quirkiest little fart, but I do love the little guy. He was in timeout in the van because he had forgotten all his plane edict over the winter.
