If you look at the SF08 group picture you can see it standing on wing tip behind the group.

I emailed Robert, he goes by Crash22 on the SPAD board. He has pictures and video of it in flight. Hopefully he'll find the email and be on here to answer any questions about his gynormous plane.

Well I'll try and keep a LONG story short. It all started a lond time ago. I took three DEB;S and glued them together.

It had three Webra .55 on it.

Ready for launch.

It had several design flaws. ( Engines too far apart, Small tail feathers ect.)

After this crash I used a down rain drain ( Square pipe) to make it a single engine for SOT.

I broke that fuse

So I made a BUHOR fuse for it.

This is it's current state.

I got this engine in a yard sale for $ 80.00.

I have some better video of it flying ,but I can't find it at this time.
Here the end of a flight with a landing.

Just for fun, here's a video of a 200" wing that almost took out a $6,000 airplane.
( Note the SMALL tail area.)

Here's an 8 ft. wing that did good.
