Here is an oddity, which appears would not be a good flier except for round and round. It has a rather heavy nose weight made of lead of at least 2 ounces. Has a mid mounted rear facing pusher .049 Babe Bee or other tank Bee. Wingspan is about 10.5 inches (267 mm). I have the kit and plan to build it some time future. Seems for better performance they should have put the engine in the nose, would have eliminated the nose weight.

George I always liked different. it just looks cool. My dad always built exotic and different. My favorite all time plane he made and I no longer have it. It was a Fruit Juicy can with a TD .09 inside of it. It had no wings, a strong Y landing gear and a elevator that was made from the lid itself. The lid was cut in half and was soldered to a piece of music wire and placed inside the can. This was more like a ducted fan tube. While it did get off of the ground, it was incredibly fast on the ground. Just some neat ideas and all in fun. I do have a passion for even roundy round flyers. Ken

That's the kit that led me to CEF and lit the control line fire for me! I built it with an anemic tanked bee that used a standard glow plug conversion. My first post here was asking why that engine didn't have any power. Then it was on to a Dewy Bird, then the Stork.... Now I have a storage room and garage full of planes and kits.

I would put a very powerfull motor on that Y-wing, I never got mine off of the ground.
