Special Thanks to:
Shirley K. (Shirley is the lady the plane was built for and is named after.)
Glen F. for shooting the video used for this web page.
Details about the plane:
The airplane is painted so there is no covering to peel.
Wingspan 56" Weight 7.2lbs ( with 20 oz. of fuel onboard ) Using 4
channel PCM radio with 4 servos. Power is from 2 OS .40 FX (The pictures
show the OS fp .35 engines) turning
10x6 Master airscrew props.The Plane flew so well I decided to spend the
money for the FX engines.
OK Lets see it FLY!

The plane flys GREAT. I start the engines and set them on the
rich side.(new engines should always be run just a little rich)
The power was added and as the plane rolled down the runway the
nose came up and it was an Awesome feeling.
The plane flew like it was on rails! The plane flew without any trim
changes. I must say there is no other feeling like it when
your design takes to the air.
It is a rush that no drug could ever give you!
Well... most planes will never be flown upside down but it is ok
to do it with a model. This one flys very well inverted.
bottom of the wing is white and you can also see the wheels
are sticking up.
After about 15 mins of flying it is time to bring it in and
the landings are smooth and nose high. This really is a nice
flying airplane. This project took about 65 hrs to build. But another airplane
like this could be built in about 35 hrs. the second one always
builds in about 1/2 the time of the first one.
