How about this one, http://www.cavemanrocketry.com/graupner-topsy-clone_pid1348.html (I hope to have some time to edit the discription tomorrow) It is a copy of the old Graupner Topsy, originaly flown with a .49 cox engine but it can also be powered with a small brusless engine. The kit is pretty easy to build and a builder with some experience can do it in a couple of evenings. I did it in a few weeks with only one hand. the drawings can be downloaded from the internet or can send a hard copy with the kit. succes janhein On 7/6/2012 1:48 AM, dfairchilds@... wrote: > > I'm a new guy.
