Plane looks good! How big is this? Good looking ship, I would think others will allow it here without problems, the engine your using is fine. Good work!

Thanks!! the span from tip to tip is 30" so it is pretty small- and very fast. i love you cheroke herr sure do make nice kits. my parents gave me the pitts for christmas last year so since it was finished it is almost a year old now and still holding strong. how well does yours take off from grass? i had a lot of trouble getting mine off because my feild is very bumpy. its ok now because i put the bigger engine in it.

I ve taken off grass for a couple of times and it was ok. I can do it when the grass is freshly cut. Your pitts needs to go much faster for lift but with my cherokee it is real easy. Plus i have norvel .074 on it.

Here is my friend Guy Van Cleave of Greely Hill CA and his Micro Hawk. He scratch built this from a January 2000 Model Flyer magazine. I am going to make the excact plane with a different color, same sceme. It uses a norvel .061 without throttle. We have flown it about twenty times and it always goes fast. Two channels and a lot of fun. Jarhead

Graupner Loop 061


This is my conversion of a Graupner Loop, it was for a geared 400 size but I built with a Norvel BigMig 061 r/c, AUW is 500g.
