Since I make the kit it is easy for me to build another. Just to stay busy I decided to build just another fuselage for flying.

i was going through by stuff and found I had a couple of new TD.049 engines. Not knowing much about the one I installed in the original that I was racing back in 1975 I thought it would be fun to see how a new TD ran. So I installed it on my test stand and fired it up. Boy was I surprised: it was a screamer compared to what I have been flying. Thus another reason to build a new Streaker Fuselage. Besides I waned to change my finishing technique. This time I mask the fuselage off and sprayed the canopy with a red spray can that pretty much matches the iron on red covering film I buy from HobbyKing. So with that said I now have a new completed fuselage with HiTec HS81 Micro servos. In checking the CG I did find I needed to install the battery pack forward of the front biulkhead where as before I had it installed aft of the front bulkhead. The CG came out perfect (per the location on the plans). What really surprised me was when I weighed it, the ready to fly weight was only 18 ounces. It should be a ball to fly when we get some decent weather in Oklahoma City. I will let everyone know.
This was not a sales story, it is just to let you know what this old man is up to.
