Marty the Mustang

Post by Tim on Sun Jun 20, 2010 11:39 am

LOL- heres my mate and recent club member Marty Ball with his latest toy.
Ripmax Mustang.
After a few hours in the Mackey skunkworks, we had the motor and rest of the gear fitted, and were planning a maiden flight or three at the field. As the wind was increasing, we decided to "do the Orme" instead, so, with a few slopers loaded, we whipped the prop off and added it to the fleet.
Flew very nicely, and will make a nice addition to the growing collection of Rippy WW1 stuff that double up very nicely as both flat field and soaring models.

Think you may find it's WW11 (the Hun in their Eindekers and Fokkers would have been completely outclassed by a Mustang) Embarassed

Well guys what can I say? I spent, seemingly hours watching Tim do his magic with his lathe to get the prop right and then screwing pale lumps of lead onto the nose (hope the choir in the local church wear waterproofs if it rains Embarassed Razz ) And then we take the Prop Off and go and chuck the mustang off a cliff!
Thank you Tim for your time and patience.
I hope to show off the Mustang this week at the field.
