Default RE: Tower Hobbies Uproar 40 build

Up-Roars, at one point in time that was my number one fun airplane to fly. I bought two kits but I made templates of kit number two and scratch built 6 more. I made up a lot of mods to them but ended up with my favorite mods just being adding a cowl and I found they liked the tail feathers of the Dazzler better tehn anything I came up with. The photo was taken some years ago in my first shop, I spotted the wing half of one of my Up-Roars in the photo, my wife picked the colors and I'm very color blind, I lost it and it went through a tree. The yellow one lasted for years, I just kept fixing it and it kept flying better and better. Won several fun fly events with that one. I gave it away three years ago when I moved here. I mostly used the OS LA .46 engines, way more power then needed, I did put an MDS .58 in one, talk about over kill!! High Fly Bev has one of the best wind flying photos on her thread I had ever seen if you look it up. Very inspiring!!
