Stevens AeroModels - eHopper


Just received my latest purchase from SA; The eHopper is a 1:10 scale reproduction of John Chotia's 1981 Weedhopper Model C (JC-24C) ultralight and has been faithfully reproduced from Chotia's original hand drawn plans. Featuring the simple snap together assembly you've come to expect from Stevens AeroModel combined with awesome scale detail and superb in-flight manners.

I was thinking by Friday..... classes started back so, it's busy at West Point. I've built 3 SA kits, have this one and still need to build the SKYBUGGY 300. I know I won't stop there and I'm sure I'll come home with a few in February "if" they are at the WRAM Show. Definitely going to build the Pietenpol Sky Scout (480).

I do have the colors to go with the black, yellow, orange and red.... however; something might hit me as the cover time nears.

We really don't need build threads for SA kits.... they just go together! Place parts from each page into large plastic bag, add a few drops of CA and shake lightly.

See just like page 8 shows.... wing ready for sanding.

Love these kits!

This looks like it would make for a good micro fpv platform

Well.....


I'd have to say at least a great keychain camera platform.
