My God that is a gorgeous model! Teach is this the same place you got that Stearman about a year ago? I might just bite on it as well. Of course with my gorilla hands I will have it all torn up before it even leaves the build table. There has been progress though, at the age of 33 finally getting a wrangle on this opposable thumb business.
The very large box should arrive tomorrow. Now, my 17 yo son is at home during the day due to a recent kidney transplant. Do I drag him into this thing and tell him to take the box to my workshop in the basement before my wife gets home or do I just own up to it and take my lumps? Ha ha
I bashed up the Stearman on maiden because I was stupidly hard-headed and chose to fly it in winds that I knew were way too high. I've repaired that (very minor compared to the abuse) and am waiting for Maxford to get the proper color of covering in stock so I can match.
The flying V flies amazingly! I gave it to a friend for use as an fpv platform.
I can only blame my stupid enthusiasm! Had a friend (actually met him through this forum) back from the Air Force. He bought a new Parkzone FW 190 and maidened it in the wind. It flew great! So, how much worse could my biplane with rigging and tons of drag be???
Teach I have "lumps" coming from my spouse when she realizes I purchased a new Taranis / Case and receiver kit PLUS commited to purchase a $300 Carbon Fiber Acrobatic Tri-Copter a day later. I am hoping that my upcoming birthday and Christmas are "good enough" excuses that the "punishment" is short and light!
