Not yet, it's going to be a while until I can free up funds for it. I have a Stinger .10 I'm working on right now that will also be receiving a Rossi engine, just smaller in size of course. This will be the one to watch for if you want to see speed.

Wow, I use to run Desert Dirt Bikes through Alamogordo back in 81 when I was stationed at Biggs Field.

Then I'm sure you can remember how depressing it is here lol. Hunting, racing, and R/C can only keep you sane for so long in this dump. I've been stationed here for 7 long years, so I'm getting out of the military unless they PCS me soon; I need grass and tree's, not dirt and rocks!

It takes a special person to like the desert. The 450 sq mi of Chihuahuan Desert that was the Ft. Bliss reservation back then was golden for me and my family. We spent lots of time in the desert enjoying the different aspects of it. If you are not a desert person it must be a bad nightmare and I feel for you as the desert isn't for everyone. I had a hard time when I was transferred from there back to the East coast with all the trees, grass, and foliage. Wow, different strokes for different folks I hope you get some good PCS orders and are able to rotate out.

Yeah me too man, I'm locked to the F22 (crew chief) now so I only have a few select bases to go to and none of them are wanting people.

I have both planes also. The Revolver(70") is electric and the Sundowner is glow, of the two I prefer the Sundowner. It is cosiderably faster than my 8S powered Revolver, not as aerobatic but I seem to enjoy going fast and doing really big (as big as you want and still be able to see it) loops and cuban eights, slow ail rolls and such.
Funny thing for me though, I find the Sundowner easier for me to land, doest have the tendancy to bounce nearly as bad as my Revolver will. I use spolierons for the Revolver but do not need them for the Sundowner. Both need a long aproach IMHO to bleed off speed so not really a good choice for a short field if that is an issue.
