Default Revenger #2 finished

I know many several members have been following the progress on the backup Revenger. It is now finished and in fact I flew it for the first time yesterday. It flew wonderful and as straight as you could ever want. During the trst flight the elevators were a little sensitive so I will reduce the throw on those. During the straight and level flight I observed no pitch changes from full throttle to idle. Inverted it did require a very slight amount of down trip. Loops were very easy and tracked perfect. Spins were easy to enter and recovered right on heading. Doing the top hat was a piece of cake. The Revenger climbed straight as an arrow. The finished weight was 8 pounds, 6 ounces. With the new Super Tigre 61 it was very fast and flew easy on 1/2 throttle. I have attached a few more pictures. I will take some more pictures on the next flight

Pete, that is exactly the canopy that wing still makes. back in 1976 I chose the wing canopy for the design. In fact, I just received a new on from wing Mfg. for the next Revenger.

Hi Jeff.
Glad you like it. i hope you will be able to finish and fly yours in the near future. You will be surprised at how well it flys. I flew again this afternoon and several of the younger guy's stopped by and ask if this was one those pattern planes from the early 70's? Thay had never seen a true pattern plane fly the pattern we had in the 70's.

Best regards,
Dick

Very nice Dick! Plus, I picked up a neat wing hold/painting jig by looking at your pictures.

Dick,

That is certainly one BEAYTIFUL airplane.... I'm glad to hear your maiden and subsequent flights went well too. I am definitely going to add a Revenger to my wish list..

Thanks for taking the time in sharing your rebuild and finishing threads with us. I for one thoroughly enjoyed them.

Take care..
