Just to show I'm not the only one at the Shearwater R/C Club that builds big, here's some shots of today's maiden of Dennis Bellefontaine's 27% Cessna 172. Everything on this plane, Dennis did from scratch, including blowing up the plans from a .40 sized Cessna. As you can see, we've got a huge flying area, which helps for those large projects. We just finished mowing several acres of field for our fun fly, including parking lot area for 100 or so cars, the RV parking area, as well as a grass field for gliders, helos, etc. Two 1/2 days of work, with two ride on mowers, several weed wackers, and a couple of lawn mowers. Lots of support from our core bunch, we're all set now for the fun fly!
