World War 2 is back on...

Finally finished the rebuild of the Pax Aero WW2 Profile combat planes. This time I went with a F6F Hellcat, and took some inspiration from the February issue of MA, which featured a club profile plane with the radio gear in the wings.

After enlarging the wing chord and building for 3 days, we had a test flight last week at Helwig field. The flight went fine, save for a little engine trouble at the end. Given the 25°F temperatures, there could have been a few causes for that.



Hopefully, we can get a few of these ready for some spring combat.
