GREAT PLANES ULTRASPORT 60
I bought this at Lebanon Swap meet in 2014. After using realfight 6, I wanted one. Found one at Lebanon for 150.00. New unused Servos (5) for 10.00 each! I cleaned the plane up when I got home to assess the condition of the skin. I then wrote my list of steps I was going to take to bring the plane back to like new standards. I rebuilt the motor, Didnt really need it, but I like to make sure. Put in a new Long glow plug and it ran like a champ. I painted the prop so it could be seen easier, I don't like missing fingers... I de-skinned the wing and replaced the aging skin with new Solartex Red. I must say its pricey but is very forgiving and super easy to work with, worth the price if you ask me. I finally got the Ultrasport to run and look as new as it should. this was my first attempt at a refurb, thank goodness for years of building experience.
