Ultra Sport 1000 - Great Planes

After the construction disaster of the Wight Lady, and still in 2002, I decided to get a Kit, to see if I was able to do a better job back then. This kit was sold to me from someone who started to build it, but gave up some time later. It took me about 7 months to build this plane, but after, the results were amazing. Even today, in 2011, I'm still flying with this plane, it flies with a superb stability, and it lands slow as a trainer. This model is simply incredible, I love it.
    Also, back then (and still today), ASP engines were considered one of the worst for RC planes. This one has a  ASP 1.08 Glow engine, and since 2002 until now, it NEVER stopped in the air, ever!
