|Bob sent along this note about their new Flyin' King...
"Attached is a picture John and I took today. This time he did the fuselage and I did the wings. I did build a single door bomb bay that is about the size of a recipe card box. It uses a retract servo and push rod. John did 100% of the covering this time. He keeps this one at his house since our garage is maxed out with the SFK! We have not flown it yet, still waiting for a good weather day. It balanced out perfectly and came in at 10.5 lbs as advertised. There is a new Magnum 1.08 up front. We certainly enjoyed building them!"
Flyin King Specs:
Magnum 1.08, Ultracote , Hitec 645’s, 1 door candy bay (1 retract servo), JR 955, 1700 mAh NiCad, 10.5 lbs.
|Bob wrote again later,
"I did have the pleasure of flying another modeler's Senior Telemaster and found that the Flyin' King flies better and is just a much more fun to fly airplane. The aileron rolls on the FK surprised everyone as to how axial they are. Flaps as you suggest, are a must just for the fun of it, and a bomb bay is just too much fun to pass up. This is the understatement of the year but you are a one of a kind model company and an asset to this hobby! Thanks for putting out such wonderful products and the best in customer service, followup, and support."
