Awesome. Thanks for all of the input Kevin. It is an amazing plane and I am sure it will be an amazing UM. Any chance you could spill the beans on a bigger PZ or E-Flite Beast?

Major,

Spill the Beans?!?! Sure!!

There is the .....hmm. Can't say.....
And then there is talk of a.... NOPE!!!..can't mention that either....
Oh yeah! What about the....Dang it!!! Hushed again...GEEZZ!
I guess there aren't any RC beans I CAN spill....

I can spill JKE beans though. We are busy in our shop working on 2 new model 12 two seaters. Both custom builds with 410hp 10,000 cc engines and VERY complex paint schemes. One will be based in SC and the other in GA. Other than that, trying to find some time to fly RC but it has been SOOOO hot here after work, just not having fun with it.

Sorry to hear about your uncle. Not all Gee Bee pilots died in Gee Bee airplanes. I know of a few who died of old age and I know of 2 that are still alive today. Are you sure your uncle was in a red and black gee bee? What was his name? Do you know more about that, when, which airplane, etc? Do you know which Sukhoi he owned?

Oweee...big word that sums a lot up... but says nothing. Accordingly I'll also add nothing: ad hominem is an adjective!

Truth. The world needs more single engine, twin prop, bi-canardel biplanes.

A good source to start with. I think I remember seeing the name Knight when I did some GB research last year, but I can't say for sure.

Sadly many of those books are hard to find in print today.


Edit:

Hey Kevin, you should join us at the fly in at Greg's in October, I'd love to meet you but I doubt I'll have the time to make it to Oshkosh in the near future.

Good ol P-40, one of my favorites, right there with the P-51. My all time favorite will always be the GeeBeeZ though.

Can't claim that as my work though, swiped it off the internet somewhere.

Lots of good GB info out there if you are willing to take the time to look. I had forgotten that Kimball had build the replica for The Rocketeer, that movie was one of the many that helped me fall in love with aviation as a kid. I watched it so many times I wore out the VHS....
