Iíve been working with Jordonís father John for over 10 years. Over the years we exchanged many stories of the three boys antics with any airplane they could get their hands on. The latest is the result of Jordon (age 14) who has finally worn out his E-filte vapor. A Sig Cub was in a box in Jordonís room holding up his magazine pile. One morning he asked his father what he thought of taking the Vapor electronics out and putting them into the Sig Cub. Hey, that is a great idea was Johnís answer so off Jordon went to make the project happen. In about a week Jordon had the plane all framed up. Somewhere on the internet he read that a thread that took a glue stick and Easter plastic wrapping to cover the open frame work. This is how he covered this machine. Creative and simple. His first flights proved to be a success. Jordon is now looking at changing the rudder. He feels it is undersized for what he needs. Iím very impressed at his creation in this time of mass manufacturing and molded models.
