Craig:

I would like to publicly thank you for building and completing the very first Havok kit. As always, you've done an awesome finishing job. The plane looks absolutely incredible.

Now hurry up and fly it so I can start talking smack! [:-]

Sorry for the delay

I did get three flights on it last week. Plane flies just like it should. Felt ready to race after two flights. I am starting to build number two now

Plane looks great, CBK07! Awsome job!

That V-tail sure looks like the Sam-Rai's V-tail...
I'm sure Sam-Rai Racing is very flattered by that.....

Thanks for the compliment.....definitely the nicest building Quickee I have ever put together. The parts fit is amazing and it is pretty much impossible to build crooked. Joe just got another run of them in stock for the winter building season (along with the Rattler which is the same plane designed around the Viper wing). We have been racing them succesfuly here in NEPRO for a couple of months now.

As far as the V-Tail goes, no reason for Sam-Rai Racing to be flattered. Pretty sure there were plenty of Quickee designs with a 120 degree V-tail featuring a swept leading edge and straight trailing edge long before they came around

Boy I sure do hate comments like this. [:@]

The tail is not copied from the SAM-RAI airplane.
