Default Hemple BD 5

Has anyone built one of these yet? I was wondering how they turn out.

Me Too....I started a short thread about this in Jets on Flying Giants.... I saw one flying at Joe Nall last year.. Unfortunately ...I heard it shed a wing later that day ..... Nice looking bird in person
and a pretty darn good value

I can make you something that will shed a wing much cheaper.

Last I heard, the prototype lost the horizontal stab due to a Stab tube failure and this had been redesigned (upgraded to CF) and the 2nd prototype was being built.

The kit is being sold as we speak, v2 flew 100x better. They had to redesign the stab mechinism in the tail of the plane.
