WIK Speed Astir


In 2012 I repaired a broken fuselage on a vintage 3 meter WIK Speed Astir, for a guy from my job and I do not think it has flown since.

So yesterday he called me and said that he had sold the house, and I could get all his flying gear for free.
Among 5 other aircraft there was the Wik Speed Astir 3m.

So I spent a couple of hours switching servo connectors to normal standard and change the hinge tape on the ailerons and adjust the airbrakes, and bip it in the TX.
And now it's ready for re maiden with variometer.
