Default New pilots for a PT-17

I have a Sterling PT-17 hanging in a very protected area on a over sized front porch, it's 24 feet from the entry to the frount door.

When I start a rebuild of my PT-17 it will be a full strip and check everything and then add the RC flying gear. The plane was built by someone to be a display model, I am going to make it fly.

Yesterday I realized I have 4 new pilots that will go up in my plane. Since I have to strip the whole thing anyway I don't think they will do much harm. At least not as much as my wife would do if I were to toss them out.

Now that is a first too funny thanks for posting the pictures! You need to send a pic of that to the AMA magazine, people would get a good laugh out if it.

You should really give the plane a name - how about "the Fledgling"?

Looks like a nice straight build, might want to delay the occupants training until they have been thru Ground School. I think the Airworthiness Cert. is only limited to 2...maybe 3.
