From what I've read on it, it's a decent bird.Pretty much all great reports on it.

Here's a forum on it/
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...=fantasy+racer

Fly it then step up to the balsa version.

This place is getting them back in, and in multiple sizes, up to a 150CC class!

After falling over laughing at my keyboard, I really have to ask.

With little hope of a meaningful reply...

Second shot from left, taken topside of the model from the right hand rear view.

On the right wing, just under the large 'GeeBee' in script.

Wotineck is a 'shadow breader' ???

Regards

Question Shadow Breader?

Things that make you go, Hmmmmmmm?

I could make something up, but no lets just say it's up to interpretation of the individual/s

Happy Trails

Default Crash 1

Well after 6 flights I got to cocky and flew to close to a tree, it reached out and grabbed my poor little Gee Bee and tossed it all around, then skewed it on electric power pole double 00 wire left from days gone by,
"OUCH"

She's repairable and will be ready to take to the air again today, depending on weather of course?

Note: Kabob hole will be repaired with a bullet hole sicker,

Happy Trails

The kabob hole could be fixed by sticking masking tape to the inside, on the outside cover around the area with blue masking tape and trim the hole to the tape, so the next step doesn't get all over the plane.

In a small paper cup, mix white Gorilla glue with a little water, and fill the hole about 1/2 way, it will foam up and fill it to the top and beyond, then sand it down.

This makes a white foam as close to styro as we could want.

Hey Heliscrapyard

Here's a couple pictures of the new cowl (3 liter bottle) and the graphite rod installed to transfer hard landings to the main body instead of the wing taking all the stress! Landing gear are made from welding rods (original gear were weak IMHO). Yes, I have been known to land hard on occasion, I will be adding the latest crash video in the next day or so,..
