I think if my plane broke down on the runway I would go back home. I'm not one to ignore the signs.
Have fun and be safe.

Enjoy the show.

I had one happen on Adak Alaska with cabin filling with smoke and civilians heading for the exits!.  Not sure where they thought they were going to go at 100+ mph but they were moving. Planes nose wheel actually went off end of runway before he got it stopped. Ended up spending the night after a 2nd failed attempt to take off. 2nd was much less dramatic! Ended up spending the night and getting hammered with a bunch of navy folks.

Hawk... I wanna see the Hawk!

Wasn't that the blame for the space shuttle "Challenger"?

Travis, if you get chance would you please have a look at the Space model on the Kral stand. Ergonomically to my eye it looks right and Kral say it has new barrel and trigger. (New does not always mean good.) Min power in .22 14ft/lbs and max 50ft/lbs. Max power in .25 65ft/lbs. Large power wheel should allow easy power adjustment over whole range.
This was due for release here in Turkey this month but this has now been pushed back to after IWA. I am looking to buy at as soon as available so am looking for any input (positive or negative). I know you have some knowledge of Kral's shortcomings in the past as you make parts to overcome these.
Thanks in advance.
