Default Two Week 8' Telemaster!

Two weeks ago this plane was a pile of balsa, lite-ply, monocote, and titebond. Built from RCM Plans (with a few mods). Came out at 11 pounds. Powered by a CRRC 26 cc gasser - flies great! - like a telemaster. Would have bought an ARF of it from Hobby- Lobby but they won't have any till fall[&o]??!!

We drop one jumper off of senior telemasters probably could do two, but would take a while to get to 1000 ft

Banzi 55,
I am dropping 3 jumpers from my telemaster. Using a Zenoah 26cc motor and doesn't take very long to get to drop altitude. I am using the drop boxes from Dave Naylor.

Don,
I am using the magneto version of the Zenoah 26cc engine and using an APC 18X6 prop on it.

Banzai 55,
For what it's worth. I have the exhaust on the muffler pointing up on both my engines. That way you don't get oily goop all over the jumpers.
