    There were pink P-40 Warhawks too. Actually, the were painted a sand color for North Africa ops and the desert sun faded them to a pinkish color.

    The flight crew did a great job on that abort! Looked like a textbook procedure.

    I fly fly a Hawker 800XP that has a rudder bias system that compensates for a failed engine. Bleed air from both...

    Nice job so far Matt. Keep up the good work!

    I just bought one of these kits so I'll be watching your build with interest. I'll probably build it as designed when I finally get it...

    I was an avionics tech in the Navy during the 80's and was on the first west coast westpac deployment with F-18's onboard the USS Constellation in 84/85. That doesn't make me an expert on this...

    Sorry for your loss Dave. That RV looks like it came out of a scene from Breaking Bad. I fly mostly glow but have a few electric airplanes. I plan on putting all my Lipos in a small metal tool box...

    Richard,

    I would agree with your technique if we were talking about flying full scale airplanes. Being out of trim can be deadly in full scale aircraft. I had an instructor pilot tell me many...

    I suppose you could make improvements to the plans/design and call it something else. Case in point: Sig Four Star 60 & BTE Venture.

    Personally I'd move the canopy further back and maybe add...

    Eureka only cuts foam core wings for all the US series. Great Planes/Hobbico doesn't do that. Some people prefer to build them that way anyways. Just order and/or buy the plans on your own and...

    Jeffie, compression seems good for a ringed engine. Haven't run it yet. I plan on giving it a full crock pot cleaning and rebuild along with new o-rings and a set of bearings if it needs it. I'm...

    Will an OS 108 FSR be a good choice for a US1000? Not that I have a kit but I do have the engine. Just curious.

    Thanks for the info flywilly. I have a YS 45 FR piston/liner that could use re-chroming and possibly a 61SF piston/liner. I'll have to check my other engines.
