Great Planes 59" Revolver EP
Last summer I threw some lights on my old Parkzone T-28. I have found night flying to be very enjoyable so I've been thinking about doing a nicer dedicated night plane. When I fly during the day I tend to do a lot of touch & goes, and spend a lot of time messing around down low. At night, with hidden obstacles and frequently VERY wet runway I tend to stay up higher doing more traditional aerobatics. So for a night plane I wanted a non-scale, reasonably fast, traditional sport aerobatic plane. I also had the power system sitting in my toolbox, so I needed something in a 6-7lb .46 size. After quite a bit of indecision I finally went with the Revolver.

Unfortunately the Revolver crashed on it's maiden flight. At least the maiden was at night so I did get to see it fly at night. As I was finalizing the trims I made a downwind turn going way too slow. Totally my fault. I still have the wings and have been contemplating ordering another one, but for now, there are no plans to replace it.
