Default 3Sea Bees Bristol F2b

Just wondering if anybody still has one of these or any of 3Sea Bees ARF's ? I purchased mine about ten or more years ago and have finally got it into the air. Why so long? To many other projects !
I would work on it then put off to the side and repair or work on something else. Finally got it to the point where I had to fly it or hang it up for good. Powered by a Saito 1.50 I was surprized on how easy it became airborne. At about two thirds throttle and about seventy five feet of runway into a fifteen MPH wind it was off. A bit gusty as well for the day but at least it was down the runway,
Definitly a rudder and aileron airplane. Will have to try a mix, but until then I'll have to do it manually. Lands slow and gently.

It won't be a regular week end flyer, but it does get it's share of attention at the field. Can post photo's later if anyone is intrested!

I saw this one at Planes of Fame in Arizona just the other day. First one I can remember seeing.
