I bought it assembled. It was poorly built, but with some loving care it has managed to survive and is still flyable.
Tom Fischell "KØPJG" was visiting with me at Buder Park on a short visit from North Carolina. I love to fly model airplanes, and having a friend stop by to watch is really thrilling.
I believe Tom enjoyed the day, and I think he even threatened to get a airplane.
The radio is a 72 mhz Fataba 4 channel with micro servos. This airplane was a real crowd pleaser. It would do impressive snap rolls. It was sold to a friend and is still flying.
This airplane was powerful, and a slow graceful acrobat, with a realistic sound. This one got the whole crowds attention.
The plane crashed in 1991 due to a elevator failure, caused by hanger rash, and a quick fix. Duhhhh.
