    I dusted off my Sportster 60 and flew it for the first time in a few years.

    I agree with your assessment, but I thoroughly enjoy the way she flies.

    I may build another, from the plans, and put...

    While I've been waiting for my Sig order, it afforded me some time to revisit a neglected "friend."

    Most of us can't have everything we want. Waiting, just makes it better when we finally get the model of our dreams.

    I think it was something with Sig Planes, the paperwork company employed by Sig. I got no specific explanation.

    The good news is that my order is moving along, and I should have the Rascal in the...

    You're probably right, Bob.

    The Kadet made me uneasy, as a gust of wind grabbed it just before takeoff, and lifted it into the air, nose high. Full throttle saved it, by allowing the Kadet Sport...

    The wind grabbed my Kadet Senior Sport last week, providing a few "interesting moments." This got me interested in getting out a model that was better suited to windier conditions.

    The weight of the Revolver isn't mentioned. Construction is almost certainly more substantial.

    Like Chris, I would be worried about vibration, when using a 20cc gasser on the T-Clips.

    I tend to agree. The bottom colors are in shadow. They usually look black, at least they do to me. On sport models, I tend to use sharply contrasting colors on the top of the wing, and leave the...

    I did misread your post.

    If they aren't heavy, a gasser that swings a 14" prop should be fine. I know nothing about these little gassers, though, my smallest is a 26CC. For me, anything smaller...

    I don't understand the 4 stroke sizes. They don't correspond with the 2 stroke recommendations.

    They list a .61 four strke and 2 stroke as max. I figure a .61 2 stroke = a .91 4 stroke.

    I don't really know. I have a couple options. My .91 Surpass would be awesome in a 7 pound airframe.

    At that weight, electric is still cost effective, too.

    Even with the smaller version on the way, I plan to order the large T-Clips in the late Winter. It's a nice size and should prove to be a great flying machine.

    In my view, it looks like you have a valid complaint.

    If you want the model, I'd grab the 20 bucks and call it good. If not, you may be in for a long haul.

    No. I don't work for them. Just take a look. I live in Michigan. They are in Illinois.
