    Big score today

    This isn't 1/2 a but still is good to find. Went to a yard sale today and they had 2 kits from Balsa USA never opened. One was a phayton biplane and the other was a smoothie. I've had the phayton before and they fly great. Looks like a sportster which should fly great. Anyone know anything about the smoothie?

    RE: Big score today

    Raise the wing mount 3/4" inch, invert the engine
    and use an aluminum gear. A good strong .45 on
    the nose and it is a nice airplane. For some reason
    they never seem to be very fast but with a little
    help it is a nice plane.

    I had an OS 48 4 stroke, it flew great. The older kits had high quality balsa, and it was very light.

    RE: Big score today

    I flew mine on a .46 OS rear exhaust mounted inverted
    with the pipe run under the wing. A real pain but looked
    good.
