Plywood Bullets & Widow Makers



At speed the ones I fly on the simulator handle with precision and can snap a roll faster than you can think about it. At anything less they are mushy pigs and they WILL try to kill you. Always wanted one for my RC Hangar... but the few I saw at the airfield all crashed so maybe I dodged a bullet by never getting my grabbers on one...

  1. Donnie Mains, a local A&P built a two seat Y Sportster replica that he later traded to Kermit Weeks for a Beech Staggerwing. I have spoken with Donnie about it and he reports it was not at all difficult to fly.
