    RE: Hobby King Growing!!!!!!!!

    It's an original Lou Andrews swept wing version. The colors are kind of funky, (tan and purple) but it's straight. I can recover it if need be.

    RE: Hobby King Growing!!!!!!!!

    That should be the Aeromaster Too then. I have never flown one but by all accounts, this is the best of them. Hope you get it at your price.

    BTW, is that a Hooker in your avitar? That is the airplane I really want next.

    No Jolly, it's my own design. It has a 40 degree sweep, powered by a OS .61 SF.

    RE: Hobby King Growing!!!!!!!!

    OK Frank, now that I see it closer up, I can tell it is not a Hooker. It does have the basic silhouette of a Hooker but more pointed nose and shorter wing. I like it. It looks fast.

    That would be Flitetest.

    RE: Hobby King Growing!!!!!!!!

    In a time of " ARF"s it's really nice showing up at the field with a plane that no one else has. I'm not going to be publishing the plans so if flitetest wants to copy it, they can come up with one of their own.

    It is very fast, but has a very low stall speed. And when it does stall, it noses over instead of dropping a wing. There is a fair amount of wash out in the tips. One of my fellow club members flew it and all he could say was, "Sweet" !

    It really is enjoyable to fly.

    Correct, they can't spell.
    He may have other names for them, if you're not happy with the one that he gave.

    With a few months invested into each one, I was thinking more along the lines of donating to museums, or maybe even just people.

    And from what I have seen they can't fly very well either.
