Tom, It flies GREAT! Just the way Pappy DeBolt designed it. It flew right of the board as they say. A little right trim under power, but that's it. Powered by a P.A.W. 1.49 cc twin ball bearing diesel
that starts every time with 3 flips, it weighs 29 ozs. which is 10 ozs. below the 1956 design weight. I built one in 1957 when I was 14, powered with an OK 074 with a Lorenz 2 tube rx and a Demeco
servo, which was sorta like a compound escapement, but with more batteries. Never got more then some marginally controlled crashes. Times sure have changed. Tony Stillman's conversion performed
flawlessly. Thanks for the tip.
