Well, here is a picture of the plane I hope to have finished by Father's day weekend. Composite Roo with PST J600 but will be switched to a new TJT Demon soon!
It's about 2/3 completed at this stage.

Nice job. :hot: How about bringing it to our Leamington Event on August 9&10. Bring Martin Cvan with you :D
You should be able to see this one no problem.

Thanks Peter! If everything goes as planned I will be at Leamington this year! I know Marty will go for sure! Gotta love thos composite Roos, that weird paint job is called Spaceballs and the plane came from the factory like this!!!

Lookin' good Myles. Time to change your tag line to "goin' FASTER in the great white north!"
Hey Fodder- How big is your field? Maybe we can bring jets to you!
Peter- GNM has Leamington blocked off as well. Not sure what all we'll bring yet, but we'll definitely be there with something!

I cant wait to see the grin on Myles face when he gets his first turbine flight with the ROO----Hopefully we will have her ready for the maiden flight within the next week or so. I will try and shoot some video of the event for RCC.

Looks great! Please post video if possible :)
How come you are going to a different turbine rather than the PST J600? Need more power than that? Just curious!

Going with the Demon cause like Kevin says "Faster!" The Demon puts out 15lbs and the PST 11lbs. Need more speed already and I haven't even had it in the air yet!!! :D
The PST is actually a loaner from Marty until my Demon arrives! Now how's that for great service from a great guy!

Kevin. That sounds great, but I seriously doubt there is enough room at our field for landings (we'll landing on the runway anyhow).

Fodder- Got 300 - 350'? So long as you have clear approaches, that's all it takes...

What do you think Jim? Is our field big enough? We had a community day yesterday and jets would have been a great addition. Too bad we never thought about it earlier. I'm gonna have to pace the runway now that I am curious. I know on occassion, it isn't wide enough for me. :)
