All,

I thought I would share a few photo's of my latest almost complete project. It is a Graupner Squirrel with Uni Mechanics, OS 60 RX engine, Zimmerman exhaust, JR 770 receiver, 8231/8411 servos, JR 490 Gyro, LHC lights, SAB main and Tail blades.

What do you think?

Regards

Just FYI. The real SKY5 doesn't have wipers. They took 'em off.

How's it fly?

No problem.

I flew it back in 1998 when it first came on line.

Warning!
Earl,
Very nice job!

So nice I must warn ya' that my relatives down in Stradone, County Cavan are getting up in age. Their eyesight may be such that they might mistake it for a "flyin' bird" and pop it with a shotgun blast! Ok.. bad joke... especially if they read this!

Nice job!
Cheers,
Grover
