Purchase a spinner from the internet or your LHS. Some have made them... I haven't had the nerve to try that yet.

SG Talon... Super Genius.

I bought a bunch of these. They work very well, except you need an APC style prop with a large hole in the center. I like them because they really help the look of a plane and add nose weight when you need it!

Those look like a clone of the Dubro product.

Good deal Scott! Be sure to post some pics of that setup.

Put some details on today. Added scallops on the tail and wheel pants with black edging. The orange and yellow idea did not pan out, so here it is. Going to put one more scallop on the fuselage below the horizontal stab to compliment the rest of the rudder.

Ken, I can't wait to hear your maiden results. I just love poly tips and RETs.
I may just have ot build a simpler profile version soon. If my radio issue doesn't pan out and I decide to just do another RET, I was going to finally do a Sport-Bug but this guy has climbed the ladder a bit.

Looking forward to a vid.

We are still planning on Bringing this to the US in an EPP form ... We are currently working on 7+ airframes trying to get them all wrapped up in kit form ... I hope to have it available by mid spring.

Hey Greg,

It's been in the 80's here this week in SC. Does that mean it's already
mid spring? LOL! If it's gonna be a while, I may just order the EPP from
you and put my scapel to work. Let me know. Warm regards, Jim

EPP kit


How much do you think a kit will be?

Well Shucks,

I was hoping to see some U.S. built M.R.'s before now. Come on Gents,
I'm needing some inspiration, or else a kit I can buy. I'm a sucker for slow
flyers with my ever decreasing reflexes, and this one certainly has a lot of
appeal going for it. How about it Ken, I didn't find your maiden flight, or
subsequent ones. Purty please! Warm regards, and a complete
and total lack of patience, LOL!, Jim
