Probably would get really dizzy these days.

Thanks for sharing it with us.  Please post the next build for us as well.  Most of us have a little control line modeling in our backgrounds!!! Brings back some fun memories!

Yep, it pulls some, but it's quite controllable.

The specs:
Flite Streak
200% in size.  Just doubled the plans for a standard one.
84 inch wingspan
8.5 lbs.
Webra Speed 91 for power.  (plenty!)
Flying on .027 x 70ft. lines.

Not quite Stick and Tissue, but I like it. Smiley

The TORKS celebrated National Model Aviation Day with burgers and dogs and all the fixings.  Had a good turnout despite the 100 degree weather.

Finished my 200% Flite Streak (barely) and got a couple of test flights in.  Very pleased.
