"Last day of indoor flying last Spring, I finally wore out my Taylorcraft. So, of course, I ordered a new kit. I finished it last week, and flew it indoors for the first time today. It flies as well as its predecessor. I made some changes to the nose to make it look more scale, and have included pictures here. Thanks for a great, simple kit!" - Dave Hable

"My best flight so far is 55 seconds. I'll double that for
the next contest." - Ken Antoine
