This is a tribute to one of my favorites, My Tower Vista Glider.

I bought the nonpowered version and powered it. I used HS-81's, Spectrum AR6100e and a BP motor.

I has several great flights of 45 minutes with this bute....one day I lost all contact with the plane and it spiraled down out of control. It was not in a gazillion pieces, but enough to take my time in rebuilding. I think the receiver failed, although it is the 1.2 version...I know THIS one wasn't pilot error....

I'll get around to putting it back together soon...I can't wait for the Florida Summer Thermals!

This is really a cool little plane....just a nice stable, slow flyer.... This video was not in slow motion...it really was going that slow with quite a headwind.

This one one my flying buddy's creations....a plane that can be folded down and mailed to be flown by the next person and so on.... needless to say, Owen has a few tweeks to make. What a great time it was watching this test flight! > Bud
