Auto Skunkworks


Months in the planning... test mule built... 20 degree hang angle .... and she flys !!!!

Initial trails and adjustments and now very stable flight...

Custom head spindle runs smooth ...

To our knowledge one of these scale models has never flown... so on to the mods and finishing.....

Hi Rich... just a bit of advanced mystery to maybe intrigue some.. your ground breaking designs have generated so much interest and pleasure to so many ... it's a shame such a great type of our sport seems to be tinkered with by so few.

They don't know what they are missing
