Good job. Looks great! I know without asking that it flies great!

Hello mr Gretz!
I´m taking the liberty sending you a few pics of my new Hog! Got your e-mail address from StukaStuntForum. Hope you dont mind. Built from the
SIG kit, Koverall, Ceconite ultralight on the wing, all Randolph dope, (lemon yellow, bahama blue) no decals, 5 coats of clear, not polished yet,
Trexler wheels, strut covers will be added later, added a small fillet at the wing root, Saito 62=perfect power, not too little, not too much, RevUp
13X6, an old stunt prop (I´m an F2B flier, RC is fun too) Futaba 7C 2,4, flying weight 7 pounds with CG in the right place. 30 flights so far.
Flies very very well! Smooth is the word. Very unusual these days, it´s not an ARF!! Three more on the way in our club plus one HogBipe!
