Default 3696 Combat

Several of my buddies are building and flying WW2 fighters for combat. Basically we build to the following specs:

Singles: 36" wingspan, 28 ounce minimum, 9x6 gas prop, 9000 RPMs
Twins: 45" wingspan, 35 ounce minimum, 7x6 props, 9000 RPMs

While not everybody is into combat, these are fun sport flying planes. Check out the post in http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17867

Here's a couple ofpics of my Brewster winging it thru the North Texas skies..




And a pic of my Yakolev


The Brewster was built from scratch, I used a full-size drawing lofted by Ed Kettler, and my buddy Scott Stockwell cut the cores for me. The Yak was scrounged together with whatever I had lying around in my stock, it's a composite of foam, balsa and coro. Although these birds are designed for combat in mind, they are lots of fun to fly as sport planes, and the power, weight and construction make them good flyers on windy days, and quite rugged, too. Thanks to Ed Kettler and JP Morere for the pics!!
