Droydx, I think you may be right was the guy who made this from the Sandiego Area ?
Whom ever it was he handed me the kit on the slope. hmmmm maybe 10 to 15 years ago. I Cant recall they guys name. From what i remember of it he just started Designing the airplane. We where flying in Oceanside Ca togther with a few others. He MAY have been one of the 1st to make wingeron. I THINK...But then again i could be way off base. I am old Like the Chair hehehe

That is a CR Turbo S, I believe the ST is the 60" model. I have two of them. The elevator detail and wing tips confirm it. Fine model, which has become a collector's item. I wonder if you bought it directly from Charlie Richardson.

Thanks for the info that was the guys name, The kit was giveing to myslef and a buddy of mine at Mesa drive in Oceanside many years ago i wanna say the early 90's but dont quote me on that. Do you still Fly yours ? Most of my Kits i have stored away are rather old. Just got back into the hobbie a month or so ago.. Most all blasa kinda scary to fly them with all the new stuff out.
