Default Goldberg Chipmunk

Has anyone ever built a Goldberg Chipmunk? I did yrs ago,and I had a Super Tiger .90 on it with a 13,6 Zinger prop.It was very arobatic,but you had to keep your eyes on it. It wasnt a park flyer. It was fun,until I smashed it into little peices.Ha. By the way,Does Zinger make props anymore?

I build a few, I now have an ARF from Airborne models, a copy of the GB one, it has an OS 91 Surpass turning an APC 14X6.

Had it for 4 years now, I've flow the crap out of it in the last six months, it's beginning to fall a part but it's been lots of fun

Nope, no more zinger props

I built one, has to be 7+ years ago. I still have it. It's a great flying plane! As far as Zinger props go, I was never fond of them...

I built one many years ago with an OS 70 FS. I bashed it in design. Still was very fun and aerobatic. Always loved Goldberg kits. Zingers, I flew plenty of them. they worked for me as well as the others at that time. Yes, new products out there now.
