You are halfway to a Hellcat - nice application (heck of a lot easier than the contraption I doing) - how does it handle on the ground?

when I first tried it with T28 wheels, prop was too close to the ground. With 60mm it will land on very short grass.There is no problem at all on blacktop. I should of mounted them closer to the leading edge of the wing. And I had to put slight bend in the wire to set them farther forward.
I added some fluorescent yellow to the top and sides of fuselage. I flew 4 times today including early morning and it was great. I don't know if this plane can take a place of my T28, but it is fun and doesn't take much room in the car.

I love this plane! I may have to buy one after i do some playing around with my new radian. Only thing a don't like about it is the little foam dimples on the wings and fuse. Looks kind of cheap. I may have to sand those off.

Good job!
Lots of good Hellcats out there to chose from.
That was a labor of love.

I like how it flies, but I have a problem seeing it early morning or late in the day when sun is lower.
Have to come up with some contrast markings.
Maybe I am just not used to dark planes. All others are white with the exception of orange white Extra 300.

Striking! Ground looper?

I made the tail wheel out of 1/16 wire. Fed it through bottom of fuselage (there is a piece of antenna tubing) and in to the rudder between the screws.
