My new/used project/Focke-Wulf.

I snatched this up on flea bay ,going to put some new radio gear in it ,
waiting for some new micro servo's to come in the mail an just made
some landing gear an put wheels on it as this unit didn't come with any!
Its an old school park zone foamy flyer 40'' wing span ,I will eventually
turn it over to brushless & Lipo set up!....

Focke-Wulf 190

Cool find!
I had one of those when I was a teenager
That was a few years ago....

Held it by a string and spun in a circle until the Bit** ran out of gas
Got a little dizzy.......








Be nice Duncan.........

Yup, that's how we did it
Had to have 2 circles painted on the black top, so you knew if you were grtting out of bounds

By the time you got to the outer circle you could hardly stand

You need at least 2 guys for a full tank of fuel

It was fun, that was for sure, and it taught you how to launch a plane.

That looks to be in really good shape. I could never do that, two turns on a merry-go-round, and I was leaving a puke trail. Nobody else would get on!

This one here is an old park zone fly foamy ,it had the old 5 wire servo's
in it ,I'm updating the radio gear ,also adding rudder ,as this unit was
only flown with ailerons & elevator for bank turns ,rudder will help getting
use to flights easier.

This is a 40'' wing span park flyer ,an is hand launched ,so I don't
need a big area or runway to operate it ,just a small field!

Something like this guy flying ,but I'm not that good yet!....
