Nope, not on my behalf. If I plant a plane in the pond it will stay in the pond. We will call it a lily pad.

Graphic's, if I could find the right size Big Bird, might go with a Sesame Street theme.
Really enjoyed the Littlest Airport, and my conversation with Terry Blackwell this morning. Might break-out the Bus and spend a day out at A.L.A. this Sunday.

I have always said, what a great hobby this is, for any age. Young we start with small in-expensive planes. So many branches of this hobby. As we get old, hell we can still just sit in a chair, and fly big Yellow Airplanes.
Look were I am now, Yikes!

Might be time for a new signature, ha-ha.

I agree Dale, you can grade all other engines to 3W....I have yet too see one smoother when set up properly!!!

Big Bird eh? Who's beak you gonna copy??

I think it flies very nice and light. I am sure glad you are having fun with it. The beast is a floater. I am at work so when I get home the field should be dry enough to get the big sukhoi out. I also have a pau sukhoi to try with the gp61 I purchased from Lorne. Your ultimate is sweet I am looking to get another in that size range. Might have to clean the build table off.

Hey Phil I posted a vid of my gp 61 setup a couple pages back sure glad Lorne convinced me to run a smooth pipe. The 61 is a rocket ship

I watched it. Looked great. The gp61 ran very well out of the box. It was pulling hard enough on the tie down without a pipe. I might consider a pipe at a later date. For now I am confident it will be a perfect match for the airframe. When I drive it in i'm thinking a aeroplus edge or pilot yak55 will replace it.
