Are you happy with the Ultimate performance?

What wingspan and weight is your plane?

Is it removable stabs?

did you get a good clear plan?


BTW it looks good.

Thanks

Hi,
Your Ultimate looks superb. I have recently ordered an Ultimate plus 3W75cc etc from Bob Godfrey. It will probably take about 3 months to get to me (Zimbabwe Africa). there is not much detail of the kit, building, flying etc on the website. I would be very interested in any observations that you have about any or all aspects of the kit, building, flying, design, equipment etc etc. I like biplanes and have built several. My current one is a GP giant Aeromaster with a G62 up front. It is really a most excellent aircraft. It just does anything that you ask and never naswers back. i will be most interested to hear from you.

The wings, stab, fin, and hatch are all foam. So if you have sheet foam before that part is no big deal. I used pro-bond for the job. The bird uses flying wires on the tail and wings. The bird flies very true. I am running with power to spare using a 26 x 10 menz on a BME-100. Painting parts (cowl, wheel pants and the hatch) are time consuming. I am very please with mine and I don’t see taking it out of my collection.
