Default F-22 Raptor

Well its been awhile since i built the Raptor and it did not fly well so i stole
parts from it and put it aside for awhile. I will get back to it some day.
Since building the Raptor i have built some others and am working on new ones
most of the time. The latest build was the Pietenpol Kit from FliteTest.
It is a mini and quite cute. I am working on a scratch build from plans of an Extra 300 now. Of course it will be awhile before i can do any flying now. Too Windy(it is March you know).

Cheers
Crash

Grantman, Did you build that from a kit or from plans? I have done some google searches with no luck so far. I really like the looks of your seaplane. Thank you!

Thank you! I guess my google skills are lacking. LOL I was searching for "Redaq EPP Seaplane" and was not finding it even when I did an image search.

If anything like my SE5 in flat plate wings like that ... and large ailerons - roll rate will be awesome !!



See you have twin of my pilot !!



Really annoyed that nowadays - I can no longer find Snoopy in the shops. Years ago - they were everywhere.

Here's my second Flyman. First one got lost in the bush a couple of yrs ago. Maybe he's still walking out. Just built another and putting some the test flights on him. Very easy flier actually.
It's really Super Dave Osborne in disguise.
