Tim and Dave,
   Both models look fantastic and I loved the videos.  Sundancer really flies nice for a short coupled aircraft.  I may have to build one myself.  It looks good in all orange.  Can't wait to see you two battle it out with another subject.  Fantastic again.. Regards,   Bingo

Thanks for all your comments and support. John I missed your prop question, its a 6" Tern Aero copy that I can't remember where I got it, maybe Shorties Basement, they are quite good and I should get some more.

Old post I know...
Bingo Fuel i joined here to just thank you for posting the photos of the Cobra, just starting a 1/4 scale rubber band powered version, just kiding Smiley a 12s electric. Thank you so much, those phots will help me a ton.

VR,
LeeU

PS.... you guys impress the heck out of me with your build skills, true crafstman. Just hope i can keep mine around 18 lbs lol

Hi all,

 Finally some of my pics from slides. All taken Sept. 1980 at Cleveland,Ohio USA Burke Airport on Lake Erie. Note many differences between the two. Sundancer has wheels moved back from Orange version. Cowl changed too as it is now very smoothly faired in to fuselage.  Landing gear from Cobra #22 came out of lower wing kink.  Canopy longer On Cobra than Sundancer.  Sundancer has curved wing gulls and Cobra has kinks. Wing fillets different. Lower cowls different. This was not the last color version of Sundancer as it kept evolving.  More pics later.  Bingo    (Oh yeah Pilot was Pat Hines on Sundancer and Al Kramer on Cobra #22)

18 lbs??? Sounds heavy.

A 1/4 scale Cobra would have a span of only 4 or 5 feet, wouldn't it? 

I've seen a 4 foot rubber powered model of a Waco. It flew quite well, but it probably weighed less than 18 OUNCES.
