Joe, That's a cool-looking little airplane! Do you have weights for either of these models? There's a trick you could try, for flying that Babe Bee inverted without losing fuel out of the vents..



If you don't have a "Tee-fitting".. just slit a notch into the center of the tubing that connects the two vents.

Thanks Roddie, the ringmaster weighs in at 7.1 oz the stunt man 8.4 oz. In comparison a cox p4-40 ..9oz...cox pt19...10.1 oz...cox stuka 11oz Nice little trick with the tee fitting.Is that a 1959 babe bee its on?...I'm not ready for too many inverted flights yet....I built these two to get me used to flying in circles again. Actualy I did get a loop in with the ringmster. It flys pretty well for having a cardboard wing.I have not flown the stuntman yet.My next attemp will be a p-40 built the same way.

I totally understand Joe. I plan on doing "roundy-rounds" until I get back used to flying again.

I don't know what year that Babe Bee is in my photo. None of my older Cox engines have had their parts kept together.
