    Looks like a sweet plane Ben! We haven’t had great weather for flying here but its getting better and we have down time to build and fly now…random pic just because. One of the planes we operate at work… 60% Hemple Cub with a jetcat SPT-15 turbo prop. Hasn’t seen flight time in a while but its still cool 😎

    That will be sweet on the turbine. I see the Hempel Cub all the time, as he lives here in Tucson. Even got to take the sticks on one of his clipped wings once. Very smooth plane.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    That is cool. What are they using for the motor? Weedeater motor

    3W 275cc twin. A tad bigger than a Weed Eater engine. 🙂

    Wow, that’s one of the coolest “model plains” I have ever seen and that pilot has balls of steel! Bad ass for sure Ben.

    yeah Hemple is a good dude, we communicated directly with him when we ordered ours. He’s a hell of a pilot. Our 60% has a turbo prop engine on it. It wasn’t built for the type of flying Hemple was doing…it was initially built as a tow plane for a glider project we were doing. The turbo prop has tons of torque but is a thirsty beast….it drinks a pound a min and gallon JET-A weighs about 7 pounds.

    My latest project while isolated at home. Mono Coupe 90A. Going to be electric powered like my little Cub. Got the first layer of primer on it.
