Good and Bad Day to Fly

Wayne rebuilt his 4star 60.....its a whole new plane....he didn't get to fly it today as he had issues with the little red&white plane....it didn't come back in one piece......

the four star 60 of mine not pictured in this thread flew great with the 17cc gasser....i think the prop is a little pitchy or the engine needs broke in a little more....the rpm's weren't as good as i would have liked them....14x8 prop may go to 14x6 or 13x6....

and finally i lost an old friend today....the RedBull Extra330....thats what i get for showing off....pilot error all the way....luckily i have another still in the pile begging to be built....i may try a little 4stroke on it this time....

thats wayne....he is around 80 years old....a master builder....been building planes before the wright brothers i think....lol

i looked it over and he closed in the underside where the wing used to go....then built up a cabin on top....the windshield he said is made from a "Coors" beer can turned inside out.....its a whole new plane.

i haven't seen you around in awhile....how are you getting along Kmot?

As long as you pick up all the pieces to use as templates you can rebuild that easy. I'm sure you can find either a replacement or one close enough to fit.
