Just thought I would show what I am building presently. I have had this kit for approx. 15 years now and I bought it from a local collector at that time. It has been on my to build list for a long time as are many other planes. Well it's time has come ,it may be a slow build in around heli work ect but I am really looking forward to some nice relaxed flying with it this year . I may be in some bad books with the next item but I am planning a electric setup in the old girl as I really want to be able to take it up and glide down and do it again and again . Hope you like it as I really liked this plane from the moment I seen it.

Re: Air Trails Sportster

Electric is fine Dennis!

And I like the way you plan on flying it, that is just exactly how they were flown originally, short engine run for altitude, then thermal hunting. Only now days we have the luxury of a radio to bring it back home!

Welcome to old timers in Alberta! That makes 3 of us that I know of!

Keep us posted on progress please! Merv
