Finished…sort of…

The 1951 Flying wing from Retro RC is ready to fly. I used what ever Ultracoat scraps I had to cover it and came up with this interesting combination that I’ll be sure to see once in the air. Orientation will not be a problem!

The little Cobra motor puts out lots of thrust more than I’ll ever need for this 11oz. plane with a 56 inch span. When you pick it up it feels too light to believe. Only thing left to do is fly it. Hopefully this week although the weather looks like a lot rain over the next 2 days.

I’ll be back tomorrow to the free flight Koolhoven with it’s counter rotating prop mechanism made by the great Keith Steiner. Also I’m back to working on the Herr engineering J-3 cub that will be an RC plane for our local Viola Fields site.

I have a stack of Volare and Peck Polymers kits to build this year so I’m trying to catch up.

Hope you are all about to build those nice kits you got for Christmas!
