I remember seeing this, I think it was in Toledo.

Not something I'd get excited about but, it is different.

I've met Hank a number of times at different events.

And he is fun to compete with, he likes to do things differently!

Hank Uroda is in our club, Brant Flyers, and has just about altered a Chipmunk in every way shape and form possible. He also built the first Chipmunk bi-plane ( just one fuse ) that I've seen ) Guess that was too boring for him so he built the twin fuse bi-plane. He designed and built a generic bi-plane called the Midnight Gambler with a Saito 300 twin with a custom covering job and graphics and won in Toledo with that and it was pictured in Model Airplane news. He loves to live on the edge that boy! By the way Jim he has his Cap 232 that he dropped in Otterville fixed up and flying again and he now has an Edge 540 thats suppose to be even larger than he 40% scale Cap! I've not seen it yet but it too lives up to Hanks reputation I hear!

I saw this Double/Double before it had skin on it. The wire work on the wing supports is done very well! He is awsome at covering, if you ever see one of his planes, check out his covering job. I had an old Chipmunk that Hank had built which I aquired, and also learned how to fly with it.
