Scale 25% Krier Kraft build, a tribute to grampa.

Discussion in 'Giant / Scale Scratch and Kit Build Threads' started by Bipeguy03, Jun 13, 2016.

  1. I put some cloth tape in the aileron cove as a gap seal, and increased the aileron travel slightly. She's now waiting on weather so I can get some more flight time on her.

    Over the next day or so I'm going to get the plans tweaked on and then get them up to the graphics shop to see how much it costs to get them scanned and/or some copies made for anyone that wants a set.

    For now here's a couple pictures I took the day I test flew it before the maiden, it was pretty cool to see the Krier and the Skybolt together again, even though it's not Papaw's Skybolt lol.

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    Nice shots. Thanks for bringing back some great memories. I remember when I could not wait to get to the field early with my 25% Bucker Jungmiester because I knew a Great Lakes and Steen Skybolt were there awaiting for some formation flying. A Fly Baby Bipe would join in time to time as well. They all flew Zenoa G-26's in them but I was a diehard YS guy. Wish I had pics of back then because they were almost identical to yours. Very NICE.

    Any new flight test on the Krier Kraft,also updates on cost of plans. I have review all your flight vidos,the plane looks great in the air
  6. Not a lot, life and weather got in the way a bit. The plans are ready to go to the local print shop and get scanned. I'll get that done in a few days when I get a few extra bucks lol.

    After a lot of thought and back and forth about charging for them I've decided to just scan them to a PDF and mail them to whoever wants a set. If someone needs a hard copy I'll get a set printed and mailed at cost. And for the guys that just feel they have to pay for them I'll give them my PayPal address and they can give whatever they think is fair.

    These are far from professionally drawn plans, and I just can't bring myself to charge anything for them.

    I still think that just seeing a few people building an airplane I designed would be enough payment for me :)
