AMR 50% Spacewalker

I visited the father of a friend tonight to pickup a composite F4 Phantom EDF he repaired for me. I had been hearing from many people in the area who new him, that he was an awesome builder back in the day. I knew my plane was in good hands! He took 10 years off from the hobby and just came back a few years ago.

He showed me something he has been working on since Christmas. An AMR 50% Spacewalker. I was so impressed with his build skills I had to share some pictures with you all!!!! Unfortunately I only had my cell phone with me to take pictures.

Many of the old-timers from the southern Ontario area may already know him for the many AWSEOME projects he has built in the past! He showed me a photo album of some of the builds he has done. What a treat!!! The man I am referring to is Pete Baab!!

Keep in mind that he is nowhere near finished with his plans for this beauty and it already looks sooooo good!!!

The interior is all custom. He even has a working ignition and key he made himself! Yes.... he even made the key himself!!!! Each instrument ring on the control panel is custom made by him. Each one took up to 3 hours to make. Just the rings!! He uses a small table top sized lathe to do all this. Got to get me one of those!!

He expects to have it flying by the summer of 2014.

He plans to run a DLE 170cc in it. He expects it to come in at 45lbs. The wing span is 13'!!!

You are a master builder and a true craftsman Pete!!!!
