Hi Jeff:

I haven't got anthing special planned yet, working on my big autogyro.

Holy shit- a 96" Stearman, now that would have to have a Moki, maybe the 150cc guy.

You trying to kill the Old Guy off ?

I think I know this kit, a fella in my Bend, OR club was working (and working and working and .......)on a big Stearman he was bulding as a PT-17. He didn't want to mess with dual wing ailerons with a three piece top wing and the PT has low wing only. Does this build out to around 21-lbs, if so it must be the same kit.

I would love to build it but I would never fly it, my skills are a lot less than they were (and I was never any good) so I am thinking and dreaming.

Wow ! Forty pounds in the box, that means the airframe would probably be 27-30 lbs, kits usually net out at about 70-75% unless there is some unusual packaging. Then with elecronics add back 7-lbs and 5-lbs for a fabric cover job, 40 plus pounds. Then the engine wow !

Good solution- "FOR SALE" !
