    alaimo@jcu.edu I need a Pin up girl. . .

    Popular Science has a card model that is motorized using capacitors as power. They recommend salvaged motor and squadron for a canopy and it looks like the canopy is installed back wards? Any one else think its funny?
    (note the backward canopy is in the article at this site
    http://www.popsci.com/popsci/how20/2341dd5fc7c72110vgnvcm1000004eecbccdrcrd/5.html) The one in the main paige looks OK.
    Its supposed to be a texan or a zero...hmmm....

    I noticed that too. I just thought that it was a little silly. Here is a person with the intelligence to design a powered plane using a pager motor but doesn't know which way the canopy goes. Most likely the author was probably in a rush to get the article out and just got a little sloppy.

    It's only supposed to be a "zero" in the sense of the "zero's" that were in the movie "Tora Tora tora" which were really repainted Texans.

  6. Nah, the canopy's mounted correctly, he's just got the nose and tail on the wrong ends. :)
