Buder Park Model Field


Buder Park with Tom Fischell "KPJG" 1988

Paul and Tom

The airplane is a Great Planes Super Sporster 6. The engine is a K&B 61. The radio is a 7 channel 53 mhz Fataba. This airplane is fast, powerful, very aerobic and flies like a dream.

I bought it assembled. It was poorly built, but with some loving care it has managed to survive and is still flyable.

Tom Fischell "KPJG" 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.


Buder Park 1988

Paul and Planes

The yellow and blue airplane is a Styrofoam ARF Decathlon (almost ready to fly) kit. It is powered by a OS Max 25 2 stroke.

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.


Buder Park 1988

Paul and Planes

The Orange Goldberg Cub. The cub was powered by a Sato 65 4 stroke. The radio is a 7 channel 53 mhz Fataba.

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.
