FTW! TRON- aka monotracer


tried searching for a repost, doesnt look like it.


looks great in concept, but for the price looks half inside, and wobbly parts here and there (flexxing cockpit door/canopy). would expect less of "thrown together" parts.

other than that, looks like it can be the start of seeing less pricey examples in the next 10 or 20 years

great mileage too!



internally, it reminds me of a 109 and 190 cockpit. whats up with the squared off canopy trim/frame from 60 years back. nostalgia maybe?

??? putting knee down GETS IN THE WAY!.. this leans 52 or 56 degrees! stupid knees just dangle and scratch the concrete, get in the way, knees are old news as a "feeler" gauge...welcome the side tire era .
