Carrera ASW-17

I have had this one since about 1983. It has spent most of it's life waiting to go flying. I got it back out of the box and put some new radio gear in it to fly it again. Just like having a NOS plane since, if I remember correctly, it only flew twice in my teens. If I get ambitious I might take the old servos out and replace them with something smaller so I can install the cockpit. I also made up some carbon fiber pushrods. The balsa rods were showing too much flex. I set the powerpod on there just for fun.
