Next Northwest CL event: Oregon Flying Fun No. 3 See Where the Action Is


Last week we featured a Barnstormer for Old-Time Stunt by Mike Havery of Auburn, Wash.. We continue the Barnstormer theme this week with this one by Bob Welch of Federal Way, Wash. The plane is scratch built from Haverly plans and powered by an E-Flite 15 with a three-cell battery, 11x5.5 prop, and flown on 57-foot .012" lines. Bob Welch photo.
