Tony!

We are going to have to send you more kits quickly as fast as you are putting these together!

Have you decided shoulder or low wing, forward taper or rear taper, 29" or 25" wingspan?

Sincerely,
Doug and Becky

Wing and tail feathers done. Decided to go with the 29 inch "rear" taper wing. It just looked right to me. Balsa putty and final sanding now.

Looks great Tony!

You will very much enjoy this configuration. It is my favorite config for looks and all around flight performance.

The Super Sport is kind of a sleeper..... it's a great performing airplane with a wide speed range even with the long wing. It's my go to favorite.

Sincerely,
Doug (and Becky)

Thanks Doug!

I decided to go with the 1806 electric combo on this 29" span bird. I'll use the Cox .020 TD on the 25" span SS.

Hi Tony,

With the 1806 on 3 cell, it can slow down to a walk or accelerate going vertical out of site. You are gonna like it.

Doug and Becky
