Henry Haffke, Giant Peashooter (85" ws)

I'l looking for a copy of the artice about this plane that was in the September 1995 issue of MAN, can anyone help me out?
Has anyone ever built this plane from the available plans? How bout the 95" ws Giant Hots?

THIS ONE? I might have that issue somewhere. I just have to dig it out of storage.

Yes, that is the one....:) Very hard subject to find data on.....
I have searched every place I can think of to find some reviews on this plane....I have failed badly, so far.

Thanks for your reply..

I have built the original 56" WS version from the kit. I also scratch built 2 others (1 modified wingtips and tail section and the other as the kit is) and currently use 1 of them to break in my .40 - .50 size engines. Years ago I blew up the plans on a copier and taped the pieces together to get basically a 70" WS set of plans, then he came out with these plans, so I never got around to building it.
I have to say the original was a very fun plane to fly, and was the only plane I ever landed vertically. I was landing in about a 15mph headwind and just slowly came back on the throttle until it was right in front of me about eye level and again lowered the throttle click by click until it settled on the runway. SO COOL! :D
I will try to look for the issue today and see if I have it here. If I do I will gladly try to help you out...

Man, that would sure be a big help. I'm glad to hear the 56" ws flew so well. This bodes well for the larger size.
Thanks again for your effort...:)
