Dick Sarpolus Tomahawk

Ah, I remember that one. Was looking at some old issues of FM recently and ran across it.

I have not built that particular design by Dick but I have built probably close to a dozen of his designs. They are all easy to build and they fly extremely well. Since the design is somewhat dated and was originally idented for a glow engine, I would look the plans over carefully and see what can be done to drop a few oz's. Not that his designs have a lot of superfluous structure to start with anyway!!

If you decide to go ahead with this project please let us know how it turns out!!

If you have any questions you could probably contact Dick via FM. He is a very nice guy to work with.
