Default Another Midget!

Picked up one of these non-flown used arf's and man is this a nice little plane! I went low end with an OS .61 and this thing carves up the sky nicely. Only prob is that weak ill designed landing gear, I bent mine completely foward and it works OK now. Nice compact little plane, introduced me to this style of flying. May have to try a Shoe, Minnow or Toni now. I can see how those low high speed passes can be addictive.

What brand is it? I'll show you some mods I made to my gear tomorrow. I also have a shoe. That whole list are very good flying planes. Throw .90's in them.

It's the World Models version, flew it again the wheels way foward works better. I was thinking adding aluminum gear to the fuse, they must be bullets on a .90, mines handling very well with the .61, no tip stall, snapping etc.

I always liked the WM MM. I just have a difficult time spending that much for an ARF. A recent issue of RC Model World gave me a free plan for a .25-.40 size that may make a nice home for that Jett I picked up.[8D]

I had one, Died at a mid air collision. mine had a 4 stroke 91 os with a 11x10 prop spining at 11,800 on the ground, it was the fastest in town here in miami. Very fast plane, will definitely buy another one sometime.
