I Miss RC stuff…. But I have a hard time justifying the money and time I used to spend on RC,,, 😎 😎
About a month ago, a R/C club member gave me a crashed Piper Cub. I deemed it repairable, and as I needed to rebuild most of the cockpit, I decided to modified it to the military L4 version. This version has lots of windows so the pilot could see 360, and above easily. The L4 was used by US and allies alike as spotter platforms, liaison, and currier type missions. One pilot even mounted bazookas to the wing struts and had two German tank kills. Anyway, here are some progress pictures. Most were done up in OD Green with invasion stripes, but I decide to go with a National Guard silver scheme. Starting the cabin mods. All of the structure repair, and mods added. Fuselage covered. Aluminum panels and rivet detail on forward fuselage. Top of cabin complete. This is close to what I’m going for.
Time for flight yet? Ben!! How about the full size??BBWBParticipantDecember 10, 2021 at 11:01 amPost count: 1154

Flew it Wednesday before last, just to check it out. Still have a ton of detail work to add to it. Waiting on an order for that. I have a short video clip of it taking off, but can’t load it on the sight.
As for the “full size”, I put it up for sale. I’ve lost interest in it. Mostly because it’s hard to get in without the wings in place. I think it would be impossible for me when they are in place. I kept trying to convince myself that I could do it, but the reality is, I’m too stove up, to fat, and over weight. It was fun getting it to this point, but I’m over it.

Sucks to know you are selling it. Would have been cool to see you fold your tall ass into a pretzel and fly it onceJohn JonesModeratorDecember 12, 2021 at 3:41 pmPost count: 8861
Great time of year for indoor rc racing… 😎 😎 😎 Your lucky if you live somewhere that still has it!!! 😎 Although I guess that would just be ANOTHER distraction for me… 😎
Ben!! Sweet on the RC… Bummer on the full size… That would be epic… Link to ad?BBWBParticipantDecember 13, 2021 at 9:15 amPost count: 1154
FB add. I also posted in the EAA Tucson chapter 81 FB page. Still have to put it out several other places.
Had one guy come look at it an hour after I posted, but his wife shot him down.
