Try a simultaneous tap to both sides of the prop driver,motor mechanics use this method to release tapered shafts on ball joints.

Never got a chance to fly it,gave it to a friend of mine,I gave Phil Kent a call and he told me model flies very well his first model was smaller at around 48" span and he built the 55" one and it was sold before he got a chance to fly it.

Dark green Solartex and a couple of coats of satin fuel proofer

Took about 3 weeks to build,not flown yet and it will have to be hand launched.

it will not be me doing the test flight,need someone with fast reactions I think.

The Cambria Spit shows optional u/c but these fun fighters don't look right with u/c dangling.

stay cool
