"I completed a BA Parasol this past week and I wanted to send you a few pictures. I liked the Skokie so much that I went ahead and built the BA even though my past experience with Parasols have not been all that good. But your BA parasol was a joy to build and fly. Right now I have 6 strands of 1/8" tan supersport 22" long, turning a 8" silver prop . I have the airplane set up to turn right under power and in the glide. The first flight I just put in a few hand winds and it flew great, all that was needed was a little right rudder to tighten up the turn. After that I made no more ajustments and on the 4th flight it flew 48 seconds. The flights were flown right at dark in no lift. Thanks again for making these great old kits available." - Mike Breen
"Here are my Skokie and a BA Parasol done up as a French fighter." - Lindsey Smith
"Hi Dave, Here's some pictures of my Jimmy Allen B-A Parasol. The kit went together easily and it flies great. I'm no contest flier but do get nice Free Flight flights with this model. Notice the dummy exhaust stacks. They are there for weight and balance as the forward two each have one BB in them for correct CG. Really like EBM models and have several others. Great quality, reasonable prices and good fliers. Keep flying, Jim" - James Polles
"Thought you might enjoy seeing one of your kits completed and flying well. It's a BA Parasol I built for the Jimmy Allen event. There is a lot of FAC activity here in Texas, so I thought I better get up to speed, as I normally fly AMA and NFFS Power. Great kit and fun to build." - Mark Troutman
"A couple pictures of my Jimmie Allen B-A Parasol. It has a good glide but I haven't powered it yet. It has a 9 1/2" p-30 prop with 8 strands of 1/8" rubber. I put a DT on it just in case and hope to get it out for some trim flights soon." - Gary Acord
