Not sure what you have is a ringmaster. Ringmaster is a control line stunt model. looks like a 40 sized Dirty Birdy. Sig makes a lot of canopies and they should have something close.

Mowing time???? You said MOWING TIME???? Move up north & try SNOW SHOVELING time for a change. That is something that you can really complain about. Lived in Florida 1st 25 years of life now live in Wisconsin for 45 years. I take mowing time any day of the week.

snow?


no shoveling snow please! I suggested that my friend carve a wood canopy and just add it to the fuse.. I think that will be the best thing to do anyway.. Thanks for all the help Guys.. WHAT are your guys working on ?
I got the tank built, installed and plumbed, finished motor install and linkage attachment so I got the front install done last week on my day off.. I plan to do the push rods and glue the tail feathers on Monday...fingers crossed....... Terry
