I would have liked to see a video of the fuselage being covered.
Well, When I build my next one, I will shoot a video of the fuse covering. Only problem is, I still have to finish the Cub I'm working on before I start the US60, and even if I get to it this winter, I can't promise it will get finished before next winter.

Count me in the US Brotherhood (#126?).  I'm working to finish my 60 size kit purchased over 10 years ago.  This is a plane I have been looking forward to for quite a while.

I know what ya mean, I've got so many irons in the fire, I bearly get to work on my own planes. Seems like I'm always working on someone else's plane.
Hey, thanks for the coveringwalkthru, pictures and measurments always make it easier to follow.

Minnflyer, would you kindly put me in for membership in the brotherhood? I have a US40 build underway that I hope to wrap up this winter and a US60 in box thanks to RCKen's efforts to get GP to make a few more kits.

Thanks!

Happy flying!

Mike

LOL, How do you think *I* feel? I do so many product reviews that even if I do have some free time, that last thing I want to look at is another airplane!

mine was built in head 1988 powered by a super Tigre 61 round head and trike gear and green and yellow. Matt, mike and i flew them information for several years. then i switched it to a tail dragger, recovered to blue and yellow, this summer it switched to electric (turnagy sk3-5055-430, dlux 70, and 6s 5000 turning a 12x12).

if this is good enough for a number i'ld like 134

Ok, 134 is going a little too far ahead.

We're up to 127, you can have that, or wait a little while till we fill up a few more.

On another front, the work on my Cub is proceeding quite nicely. But right after Christmas I start directing a show at our local community theatre, so that will suck up most of my nights till mid-Feb.

But I'm thinking that I will be able to crack the box on the US 60 pretty soon.

How are you guys holding the fuel tank in? Are you just using foam or some find of hold down.

I just use foam.

It's also a good idea to put a piece of Duct Tape on the bottom of the tank and fold it over itself for the last inch or so to give you a handle if you ever need to remove it.

No, that was drawn in Sketchup (which is a free Google program) and I added the "Duct Tape strap" with Photoshop

I built and flew a US40 in the mid-80's. Flying weight 6lbs even. First engine was an OS .40 plain bearing, it flew well although it needed a tad more oomph. Next engine was an OS .50 which really brought it to life and was a perfect match. Third engine was an HP.61 Gold Cup, more than a little overpowered but it handled it well.

Flash forward to the mid-90's. I picked up a US60 kit shortly before they went out of production. Built entirely using Ambroid cement just for the heckuvit. Had it 90% completed and had to quit flying for a while. 10 Years later I finished it and maidened it with the very same HP.61 Gold Cup. Just like it's smaller sister 20 years before, it flew beautifully right off the board. The .61 flew it well, but it wanted just a bit more juice so it got a shiny new OS .90 4-stroke. What a great combo! It's currently sitting on a shelf undressed waiting for me to recover it, and paint the nifty new fiberglass cowl. Sadly, I'm in a position again where i can't enjoy the hobby right now.

I've been fiddling around on CAD designing a 1/2A version of the US.

Some of my best modeling "war stories" are based that first US40 (which was also my first truly performance model). These are some mighty tough airframes. My US40 flew through a tree, dug a well in the ground, mowed down about 10 feet of alfalfa in a slightly-misaligned attempt at a warp-9 pass down the runway.....etc. etc. Worst damage that US40 ever suffered was a single cracked wing rib and about a bajillion dings in the leading edges. Did you know that if you fly into alfalfa at terminal velocity, coming to a stop within 10 feet, that the wings will flex violently enough to completely blow out the monokote in the open wing bays? Never found most of the tiny shreds either....THAT was the one that cracked the wing rib. Tough, light, and fly like they're on rails...love the Ultra Sport!

Count me in on the Brotherhood! Wish I had photos to share...none handy at the moment.

I hope you can get back to it soon. I was away from the hobby for well over 10 years at one point. Never again, I miss the hobby and the people I meet too much. There is nothing else like it.

Mike,

Put me in for #120. I have all my goodies less retracts to put my US 60 together, just need to find the time. I'm pretty sure it will be gas with electric retracts.

Andy
Cool Andy, that is the way I was thinking of doing mine, with Super Tigre 90 Gas

I was thinking of doing that to my 60. The wing is mostly done but not so far I could not make some changes.
Has anyone tried the eflite electrics? I have a BH Models P40 that I had thought of useing them in until I rolled it over on takeoff and snapped a wing off. They have fair reviews but I'm a little doughtfull they would hold up. At $149 they may be worth a try. Beats the LADO's by $100, (can't find any LADO's anyway).
