What to do with this old free flighter?

Post  rsv1cox on Tue Jan 17, 2017 7:54 am

Put axles and wheels under the wing tie-downs and use it for a tether car, salvage the engine and fuel tank, more distressed display art, build a look-alike Kim soarer for it? Oh, the possibilities. Sad

That's the common sense thing to do Phil. But I'm thinking a wing under the engine, install a pusher prop and fly it as a canard. Kidding. I will remove the engine/tank and toss the balsa. Still at $14.50 cheap enough.

That's a rompin' stompin' .15 Eric, Enya's equivalent to any other makers .60 sized engines.  Smile

Pontoons would only keep it afloat while it was burning Kim which may be your point. Ya need it for your floater?  Smile

Naw, I was just trying to be funny...with typical results !

It DID bring to mind an early 60's design in one of my old mags that used a pod, pontoons, and vertical fin.

Been looking for it without success....man I got time on my hands....

There's a STYX song that covers that.
