Hey Double D- with that fancy new job downtown you can afford to have Kelly build one for you too!

$10,000 plus materials ought to cover it (barely). If he lets you fly it you better say no and run!

Kelly,

Everyone has already said everything I wanted to say about your airplanes except, thank you. Your building techniques and attention for detail has inspired my novice building abilities. Thank you for showing me how to accomplish building tasks with success.

I would like to see a video of you airplanes if you get the chance.

80stars and Walt,

Thank you again for the kind words. It means a lot to me especially coming
from a professional builder that is held in such high regard!

Kurt flew the maiden on his 300 today, Independence day 2008! I got mine out
to the field so we could get a few pictures of them together.

It is pretty cool!!!

Update:

I cut some graphics for the plane from Monokote and installed them last week. Today
I had a chance to get out flying and snapped some pictures. I followed the video
shown in the link to make my graphics.

http://tinyurl.com/64zn7x

The only thing I did different was I removed the press and seal right after applying the
graphics. No heat was needed to remove it, I just went slow.

I have to say this plane gets better the more I fly/trim it. It just flows through the sky
nice and quite with the JMB cans and the ZDZ Super 160 is an awesome running engine.

Not a burble to be found upright or inverted with the rotary valve system. Up-lines can go
on forever at 2/3 throttle, full throttle is just pure power.

Sorry Mark,
I did not see your reply.

You can use any of the pictures you like or I can send you higher res copies
if you need them.

All the pictures I posted were resized smaller from the originals.

Yep, Big ***** Chair Club, better know as BACC.

Sometimes when things are going wrong in the air you just have to sit BACC
and enjoy the free show. At the same time you have to watch your BACC for
out of control aircraft. And don't forget, we have your BACC when the flame
war begins!

Thank you,
40% is the scale of the airplane.

I have not flown in a month or so due to work and kids but will try and
shoot a video of Kurt flying his next time I get out.

Kregan,
Great build! Do you have some sort of cushion between the landing gear cuff and the fuselage? It looks like a dark stripe around the cuff.

Thank you,

I used black fuel tubing that I slit down the center
with an razor knife.

I drilled a #43 hole in the cuff and landing gear on the under side. I then
tapped the hole in the landing gear to 4/40. I used a single 4/40 socket
cap screw to hold the cuff up tight to the fuse.

You got it...

Black fuel tubing on the large side, nothing on the
small side.

WOW I can not believe it has been 5 years since I built the planes.

Looking back at the beginning of the thread I have to laugh because I have since built
two CNC milling machines and that motor box work would have been a breeze! LOL

Mine plane has been a hangar queen most of its life but I plan on getting it out this year!
Kurts plane (red one) has been flown more then mine and I think he won a contest or two
with his.

Thank you all again for the kind words.

Nice meeting you at the field today. Wonderful build thread. As I told you, I saw the red one and knew I was seeing something special, and now I see some of what went into it. Amazing.
