I am leaving this afternoon for Muncie and the McCook Squadron FAC Contest on Saturday and Sunday. I feel very much behind the curve; not prepared to sell or fly. I have shortages on certain products, I am trying out a new trailer, and I have several new models that are relatively (or completely) untested. Not a good way to start the weekend!
Here is the most recent new model – Don Campbell’s Tomahawk Embryo. Don was a fellow Cloudbuster who passed away last year. This is sort of a tribute to him. This is done in Silver and Turquoise Esaki tissue and has a 7″ Superior Prop. The logo on the side is just how Don has it on the plan and it is printed right on the silver tissue.
I do have a new Embryo – my Sky Rocket – but it weighs in about 25g or so without rubber. I am sure it will fly well, but I wanted a light weight Embryo again.
As you can see in the gallery photos, the Tomahawk weighs in at 18g without rubber, 28% less than the Sky Rocket. The Tomahawk will likely be my next kit, as I laser cut all the parts and traced the original plan for a new, fresh plan. I did adjust the windscreen to gain full raised cabin bonus points.
See you in Muncie!
