    I’m thinking of getting one. If I do it may get the floats I have a be a water bird only and I will continue to trash my other UMX timber. Also thinking of ordering the more powerful motor for the stock one to wake it up more.

  5. Here is one I did in my Work shop years Ago. A Scratch built Australian Nomad That I bought from a Very good friend of mine from Gillette Wyo that he crashed and I rebuilt it. the horizontal fin is a flying stab and the wing is three sections. The fuse is in two sections bolted together with four 6/32 machine screws The bottom was open that I dropped four large sky divers, that were radio controlled with directional shoots.One of the Featured Planes at the Rally of the Giants 2001 video. I flew this plane at many Airshow here in the North West for years, Finally Sold it to a friend here in Rapid City that owns Flags and Wheel's Amusement Center to put on display. I some times wish I had never sold it nomad.jpg

    Would you by any chance have any good good pictures of the fuselage connection. I would like to get rid of my minivan and get some thing else, and may have to split the fuselage to fit the new car or sell the planes.

    Haven’t done anything RC related with it yet but started learning a 3D design software called inventor. Really cool program but totally different from what I’m used too with 2D AutoCAD. 4D8D9CE0-1A68-4070-A55A-A4C95780315B.jpeg 06C86A35-8620-44D8-B063-9AE8758DDDE9.jpeg AD2268AB-ABE3-4F22-BA04-23C478669A04.jpeg A167D0AC-11F9-4D9E-AA9F-DC4172B91255.jpeg
     
  10. When I sold the Plane I also give the guy all the blue prints and molds for the engine cowlings, But I will look through all my photo's, and post them,if I have some. the two fuse square bulk heads had triangle 1/4 ply with blind nuts installed in the back half with the 1/4 ply triangle pieces with the holes for the machine screws in the front half The bottom of the front half of the fuse is open to drop the ski diver's which made it easy to bolt together, Oh and the rear head bulk has four line up dowels to insure line up
