    Tiporare nostalgia ......

    Always enjoy seeing others share their classics so I thought I'd give back a little to the forum as well !!

    Tiporare purchased used needing a thorough rehab and lots of paint touch-up from dhal22 (thanks Dave !)

    Specs:

    YS 61 AR with OPS pipe
    APC 11x10 prop
    YS 20/20 fuel
    All Futaba S3051HV's on all surfaces
    SpringAir retracts
    Jetronics retract valve buried in the nose
    A123 1100 mah battery in the nose
    14 OZ Dubro Tank on the C/G
    1 OZ of weight needed to opposite wing of pipe
    Weight 9-1/2 lbs exactly !!!!

    The weight means nothing with the YS AR 61 and pipe. Unbelievable speed and torque for the weight. Rock solid in the air and landings for such a heavy wing loading much to my pleasant suprise.

    Video is only third flight and its cold and my arthritus in the hands limits me from really ringing it out through the pattern.

    Also needs to be finely trimmed in spring.

    Enjoy !!

    RE: Tiporare nostalgia ......

    Looked great, congrats Dan! Nice looking field too; where about in Joliet? Any chance you flew pattern in the area back in the 70s or early 80s (the name rings a bell for some reason)? I grew up in Riverdale/Dolton, lived in Glenwood for 14+ years, and flew in Harvey, Lansing, and Flossmoor over the years back then. Just curious, but again great video (and I bet Dave wishes he had it back!).
