  1. I borrowed the idea from you and Tom. :D :D And yes they do come in handy.

  2. Well getting closer. :) Controls are all setup now, have to secure the canopy somehow and then I need to figure out an easy bendable landing gear ;) . Also need to see if the hobby store has the props in stock that I want.

    Nothing wrong with arctic camo:)
    You could push the boat out and put some black stripes on it.
     
  9. Well the Pucara now has engine cowls. :) Next some landing gear. ;)

    I remember several of these things attacking the US fleet in on of the first episodes of season 5 of "The Last Ship". Pretty darn fast! Can't wait to see this fly.

    I`m in no rush to get it done, we`re half way through winter and spring won`t be much better for flying. Although it look`s pretty good today.

    Pucaras have a maximum speed of 315mph and a similar armament to a ww2 fighter they would`nt stand a chance against US forces.
    In fact they took an absolute battering from British forces using small arms fire and SAM`s in the Falklands conflict.
    Don`t believe in anything coming out of Hollywood or the internet:)

  16. Landing gear is coming together. Front wheel is going to be a caster type so no mechanical steering but still will allow turning by rudder.

  19. Just scaled the bird, as large as she is less the battery and props she comes in at only 32oz.

    Mine will be heavier than your`s Jeff due to balsa spars double thickness vertical and enlarged empenage.
    I will have 2.75 sheets of depron in this build.
