Becoming an airplane.

Went with my Irvine 150. Stripped down and sold my Sig Cap to use the Irvine and servos in this bird.

Forgot the elevator joiner before mounting the horizontal stabs, so looks like I'll be using two servos for or a double pushrod for the elevators.

Our region's largest funfly of the year. 200+ registered pilots, a few vendors, of whom I always buy something from, and lots of pilot prizes. I've won major prizes there three of the last four years, including a $100 gift certificate from KMP, a patio table and chairs last year, and this year a KMP/ESM 80' Stuka! Not that I'm bragging ... well maybe a little bit .

I've got an Irvine 120 2 stroke I may use on that ... just a bit of irony there using an English engine in a German bomber.

My Laser Arrow arf bit the dirt hard this year at Gimli Modelfest.

I had help tuning the Supertigre S61K from a guest flyer from Italy. Enzo said he 'spoke' the right language for the engine, and he most definitely got it running sweeter than it ever had in the past.

Unfortunately I didn't have the thumbs for this model yet this summer, and ended up planting it in the barley. Engine, pipe, airframe and most of the electronics were destroyed.
