At the moment I have a Shrike, in the shop.
Had a Ultra Stick 40, but I ripped the wing off it with a Rossi 60.
Plus I have a Predator in the box with a Rossi 40

P.S. For the record my wife likes them fast, it's the other members in my club that seem to have heart failure when I pass them.

I forgot to add my 40 Patroit, but I just got it, so no flights yet.
Pictures will be as soon as my 5 year old daughter shows me how the dig. camera works.

hi all fellow speed masters due to someone swiching on there tx and being on the same channel as me my rapier got a head ache and no matter how many pain killers i could give it, it was no good .RIP[&o] the loss was just to much for me the sleepless nights the empty space were she stood so prourd in my hanger (speare room) the lost sound of the ASP 40 and the pipe kicking in at the field.There was only one thing i could do and that was to give birth to another rapier the nights of cutting wood, the occasional slip of the knife ,the shaping ,the sanding the blood the sweat then the job was done so i unvale the new one to you guys first [8D]

A 9-7 or a 9-8 is always a good place to start.

Go for the 15 size. It fly's much better than the 1/2A does. Had a 15 size about 3 or 4 years ago.

I have the 1/2A Shrike with a Norvel .061 and HAD the Shrike .40 with an O.S. 46 SF ABC-P, enjoy(ed) them both.
I've got the .15 sized kit too, barely started building though. It will get an MVVS .21 rear-exhaust with tuned muffler,
that ought to walk the dog...

There goes the hood.

Yes I must admit I fly 1/2a too. But only racers. ROG is a great guy as a sponsor of a 1/2A reedie race here on the right coast and a decent guy even providing a laser kit.[sm=thumbup.gif]
