Paul Gibeault's Move
For a retirement project, Paul Gibeault of Leduc, Alberta, refurbished a 30-year-old Formula 40 Speed plane built by Mike Hazel -- then master Stunt builder Bruce Perry volunteered to do the paint work. And here is the result. The engine was upgraded from an old K&B to a Nelson .40RR pylon racing engine, and the prop is an Australian F3D prop. At right, Bruce Perry shows the trick finish on the bottom. Paul Gibeault photos.
Luiz Rossi's Trivial Pursuit
Flying Lines reader Luiz Eduardo Rossi of São Paulo, Brazil, is the owner of this Trivial Pursuit, an electric version of the Ted Fancher design. Daniel Bento did the construction, finish and painting, and Luiz made the electric conversion. Power is a Cobra 3520/14 with an Igor Burger timer and 12x5 prop. The system uses a 5S Thunder Power battery, which brings the weight to 1,730 grams. Luiz Rossi photo.
