Default Vote for 40/45 classic rekit design

After asking question about interest in kiting 40/45 size classic design there seem to be enough curiosity in having poll to settle on design or designs for production? Please vote for one and let your friends know about poll.

Remember 40/45 size
Thanks

Thanks Tim.

If you vote, please make a post with a one word "voted" at the very least. Otherwise it becomes a mystery poll!

Voted.

David

Edit: Mmm... seems like one can only vote once. A little limiting if one is interested in more than one design. Anyone know how to fix this?

Voted - Minare

I flew one of these many years ago, but it was powered by a Super Tigre G60 Bluehead ABC/ring, which provided plenty of power and not much of a weight disadvantage, for back then.

Voted ! It was hard to select which ONE. They were all nice planes and owning several would be nice. Oh well,

Airraptor,

It has been a project in the works for the last year. There are active threads here and on RCU.

I just shipped the last of the "extra" kits I had cut. I continue to receive PM's however so I may have to do another run if there is sufficient interest.

I will likely first focus on one of the designs discussed here - likely the Citation by the looks of it.

The DB .40 is a great patternship. I've known folks that campaigned them against much more expensive patternships and won routinely. That old saying (paraphrased, of course) saying that it's not the airplane, but the pilot that matters the most is true. Give someone an honestly neutral airplane, such as the DB 40, and the best pilot will win every time.
