I decided to do something unusual. Post on RC Universe again! Of course it would be here on the Royal thread. I'm going to do something that is rarely done on this thread. I'm posting pictures of a Royal kit that I just finished! The Royal Piper Colt jr size. It has a 57" span and for .40 size engines. The kit came out in 1976. My friend bought it in 1986. I got the partially started kit in about 2005. I worked on it a little here and there and posted pics here on this thread many pages back. I resolved to finish it starting late January of this year. I finished it last week. It flies great! I put a vintage OS .32FSR in it and the power is perfect, as I fly "scale" I have yet to ever go past 60% power. It's covered with Coverite 21rst Century fabric and painted with KlassKote brown. It weighs exactly 5 pounds. The panel is scratch built and the seats are from a Royal cockpit kit for their Jr size Cessna's. And it has lights! The markings are from Callie Graphics. A 1959 factory scheme. Oh and one very important thing, the kit was modified to end up a TRIPACER with 2 extra seats, 2 extra windows and flaps!
And now I will crawl back under a rock as I do NOT build GIANT scale or electric!
