Just thought I would post some photos of my Sportmaster which was built over 20 years ago.

I think it's safe to say that this is one of the classic planes designed by Lou Andrews.

Take care and have fun

Re: Sportmaster

Nice Sportmaster. Did not think I would ever see one of them flying again. My older brothers first RC model was a trainer master. Best trainer there ever was as far as I am concered, except its a complicated build for a high risk first model.

I always wanted to see a Sportmaster completed. Just only seen it in that little B&W magazine ad Andrews used to run way, way back.

A late member of our club Harry Stacey, built no less than 3 Aeromasters in the 70`s/80s. All in different wing configerations. All modified with a nicer nose. And I wanted one.

So I built one in the winter of 81 and 82. ( I was 15) I chose the version with the big swept top wing, small bottom wing. Put Pitts style outter strutts on it, slide in centre cabine strutts, put on dual ailerons, Halco aluminum gear, Sig Liberty Sport wheel pants, and a streamlined nose. Powered it with a Profi schnurle 60 2 stroke. Covered it with Royal Silron and painted it with Sig dopes. It flys beautiful.

And the best part, I still have it and it looks like the day it was finished. I learned aerobatics on this machine.

Here`s a photo of me with it back in 82.

Thanks for posting, if you ever get a video of you flying it, please put it on YouTuber for us and link it here. Chad.
