Originally constructed in 1972, and flown at Sepulveda with a Johnson Stunt 32 for power. After hanging in the closet for 29 years it received an OS 35 from an r/c fun-fly. Original "profile" VECO tank still works. It was way too fast with the OS. Installed a K&B 28. With a 10x4 prop, it was still too fast. Gave my brother an OS 40 with which he worked his magic.. plugged the transfer port, and machined a venturi. With a Zinger 11x4 it is STILL way too fast! :) The original MonoKote covering and Pactra dope still holds up after all these years.

......Suddenly it's 1962!.....
