Pat,

I can't believe that the finished ship has been posted for more than a few hours and not a large response from everyone. Anyway, congratulations! It, as usual, looks great and I wish you success with it.

Looks great Pat. Have you considered adding a spray boom from plywood and carbon fiber tube?
You will be selling a kit, won't you?

Beautiful, as usual. 7.3 oz. for a 40" plane. Amazing.

Jim, I'm really not that surprised. For some reason there's just doesn't seem to be much interest in Ag-Planes. I did the larger C*$$#@ Ag Wagon too, and it did not do any where near as well as I had expected it would.

Meanwhile, if anyone is interested in building an Airtractor, ring in, and if there's enough interest I'll work it up.

Pat,

Sparky has really cool little radial motors. 2 1/2" and 3 1/2" I think.

IAMAN, Now that I know the model flies well I'll go back and add a few details. After the first Airtractor experience a couple years ago I was really leary about how this one would fly, so didn't go to any great detail on the p-type. But now that I know just how good it does fly, it'll be a terrific platform to play with.

Ag planes have a lot of interesting stuff hanging out. With your skills, it will really look good. Does it fly in what appears to be a nose down attitude like the full scale? That made the one I built from Dblum plans hard to fly at first. Flew great once I got used to that sight picture. I would definitely like to purchase a short kit. Perhaps for my birthday!

Count me as very interested -- but not quite ready for another kit just now. I got interested in Ag planes from building a half-scale Agri-Duck a year or so back. It ended up quite heavy and consequently was a pig in the air, but I always loved the way it looked.

Agri-Duck is the low-wing version of the Mud Duck. Full-size on either of these is around 110" wingspan.

Lost my note. Missed Ya on line the last couple of days. What's happening in your tree?

Weather allowing, I will put the maiden flight on my little Airtractor in the morning. If she handles OK, then there is some other (light stuff) detail work that I will add. Mine finished out a little heavier than yours; 9.25 ounces I think, but I went with the 800 mah battery that we first discussed. STILL under a couple of small planes out there that weigh in at 13 ounces and fly on the E-flite 250's.

As soon as I figure how to post them, I will put some pictures up. Thanks again for all that you've done!

Got a break in the weather on Friday and got in a flight for the in-flight pictures. We'll let the pics speak for themselves....

Looks just like an Air Tractor! When does the short kit become available?
