S-3 Viking progress


After a lengthy "development" period, I finally got the S-3 all sorted out and flying extremely well. We built two with a third under construction. One is 70mm EDF, the other, built by my friend Gene, is prop-driven. This was a design goal all along and, in fact, the pylons/nacelles can be bolted in place, depending on your power choice. I tried to make it easy to build with conventional materials and off-the-shelf retracts. Hope you enjoy it; I find the "scratchbuilt" jets forum among the most interesting and informative of all of them. Lots of great effort and creativity here!
Thanks,
Rich

Hi Rich,
The S-3 looks pretty good. I checked you're website and see you don't have a price on it yet. Is that coming soon I hope?

Also, your T-33 and P-80 look pretty sharp and are at a good price. I'm really surprised I haven't seen someone do a build log on one here. You should think about it to stir up some interest in a couple of sleepers.

Bad Lemon,
I went through the gyrations required by RC Video for posting vids to RCU. Got a pop-up that said the site was "full". E-mailed "Magnify" (video host) and got no answer. Finally posted the video to You Tube. Here's the link:
