    RE: Super Pinto

    Like this one? It was started by David Hudson, I got it from him. I gave it to John Grigsby and he is working on it now. I flew the real plane 2 years ago and it is a kick in the pants. The plane weighs 3000# the engine has 3300#s of thrust and it gets up and goes. You can actually red line the gear on take off if your not careful. Butch

    RE: Super Pinto

    Jetjohn has it and hasn't done much lately. I would get it from him but then it would move even slower ! I'll see if he has any new pictures. Butch

    RE: Super Pinto

    It has a nose gear now!
    The wings have been glassed, servos fitted, etc. I think the holdup is a new canopy.
    John wants to get it going eventually.

    RE: Super Pinto

    I appreciate all the concern! I just need to pay off my interest in being a working musician again and then we can finance the TT-1. I want to see this fly as much as anybody!!!! After all, it might be the only one out there!
