Was at a fly-in/fundraiser a couple of weekends ago in Oklahoma and won a couple of HK Yak-54's. Hobby King sponsored most of the raffle prizes. The one I will keep is the Groupe Tranchant. Fiberglass fuse with laser cut parts inside the cabin. Wings ,v-stab and h-stab are covered with alierons already hinged. 1385...

I've just finished converting my Phoenix Extra to 20cc gas. Now that its done, I am thinking of a 30cc 3DHS airframe. I have their 41" Edge and I love it so its bigger brother the 74" Edge is definitely an option. But I also like the way the Extras and Slicks fly. I have some time to decide since I'm going to want...

Plane nosed in on lockout. Bummed but getting another 51 soon. We have about 4 wings in perfect condition, an extra canopy, elevator and a rudder from rear half of the fuse... just thought to throw it out there and see if anyone needs these. Prices can be discussed. Not looking to get rich and thought this...
