Moderator please move the thread to the sport flyer section. I posted in the wrong section. Thanks.

I remember it from the mid 80's. Flew well and was sort of a "stand way off and squint scale" version of the skypup homebuilt ultralight.

Or, likely more correctly, via Google Translate:

真实的东西,

Cute. Vaguely recall the 'Real Thing' plan version from when I first got access to US mags and thought 'Wow - do these folk turn out some neat original models'. Love the scale 'engine'

WOW I actually have one of those that has not been flown for 20 years. It needs a little work I might convert it to EP this winter.
