Joan gave me a Top Flight Gold Edition Contender. The original Contender was designed by Dave Platt in 1969 which I built and flew in the early seventies. The Gold Edition was re-engineered and drawn by Mark Hampe and the instructions by Jim Sandquist in 1999. She also got me all the other stuff needed to build and fly the model, servos, receiver, switch hardness, wheels, Monokote, glue, and etc, and etc. What A Great Gift by My Loving Wife.
I started building on Dec. 27, 2010. The photos attached were taken 23 days later.
I got a lot more to do; but we have a long cold winter here in Sandusky, Ohio
