    RE: Pete-n-poke!

    Hey Terry,
     
    That's a sharp looking Poke you got there. 

    I have the plans for an 80" Pietenpol which I will be building in the near future although
    I think I may do the wing as a semi symetrical airfoil for better aerobatics.
    Gotta love those slow fliers!

                                                     Happy flying, Oscar

    Sweet looking plane.  I'm not familiar with it, but it looks like it is a lot of fun to fly.  Hmmm, I may have to investigate further..........

    I am building one myself. I have altered it to electric power. Here are a few pictures:

    Hi guy, I have a magnum 52 4 stroke on it.. I am working on the 5th gallon of fuel on this plane and the motor was great... I do adjust the valves every year and add after run oil to it when it sits..... Good combo for this plane. The sound is right!

    RE: Pete-n-poke!

    We have two of them going in our area (being built) with a third one being considered, They are sure good fliers and sooo pretty comming in for a landing..
    They kinda fit the 4 stroke nitch...You wont be sorry.. I'm afraid GP will drop this like the Slow poke so I have kept the plans for next time....trace your ribs and Post your building and we'll keep a watch....

    I like it! You gotta get a white scarf for the pilot, though

    I have a Saito .62 just waiting to be released from captivity, now you've got me thinking about this kit.
