      Another of Kermit’s bro’s (John) old planes.

      I have no idea if it will fly again, fly well or for that matter fly at all but it is all back together & programmed up for a test flight tomorrow.

      Its an interesting setup with fibreglass fuselage, foam core wings coated with hard plastic film, a Vee tail and a DualSky XM2830PGB-9 1045 kV motor driven into a 3 to 1 reduction gearbox & spinning an 11 x 7 folding prop.

      By the number of repairs & scars I would guess it’s crashed often but hey Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained.

      After a good clean and rebranding at least it will look good when we bury it if it crashes.

      Still needs a coat of paint on the tail & a bit more tidying up IF it flies OK. I will however paint the spinner black as it currently looks out of place with the BumbleBee livery.

      This is how it used to look after just a clean

      Bring on calm skies.

Horse’s will bolt an the dooby horsey lady will be right up bad angels nose  ARHHHH could be fun
