Old homebuilt plane
My uncle designed and built this plane back in the 80's. I think it flew once and was fairly fast. I might make it air worthy again.

Looks cool!
Is it just me or does the landing gear wire look pretty thin?
More pic? ;)

Ha. My uncle warned me that there would be comments about the landing gear. It's only a 5lb plane, the wire gear is very stiff..

I never agreed with the long stroke pattern engine, I'm going to try a short stroke.

Here's the first 3 options I have in my collection. Thoughts?

OPS 60
YS 60

I bet it would be faster with the OS running a 12x12 APC cut down to 11”.

Alright, I'll add that to my thoughts. Thanks
