    I bought those as well. I wouldn't mind to do the big hots sometime.

  2. Does Santich have a site still? Ive tried searching and find nothing

    I believe that site is owned by his son Steven Santich. I think Dan has passed away?

    I am currently cutting 4 of the original 40 size Hots kits. JAG and I both want one, but two will be put up for sale for materials costs once I have them completed. JAG has an Extra Evo 36 that I think he plans to use, and I will probably retrofit an electric setup.

    I need to finish my motor install in my Ultra and get it back in the air.

  5. Nice!
    Haven't had time to search much due to work schedule but i see they have plans on ultrahots.com . wonder if they would be better quality than the ones on ebay or air age site.

    A friend from Nebraska had a giant scale Hots he scratch built. Last September we were at a fun fly in Sheridan Wyoming. Not sure what gas engine Leon had on it, he was up having fun with it, all of a sudden boom. He figured the muffler came loose and the prop hit it and then hit the left wing. The rest of the plane came down in pieces.

    Well after sitting idle for a year in the middle of an engine swap it's ready to fly again. The 40GX seems to run good.

    It's also now nose heavy lol. I'm gonna fly it and see
