It seems that I may be able to produce kits of the low overhang Exponential handle for about $25. The major expense is those pesky aluminum links.  I am getting quotes on about 25 sets and they seem to be coming OK.

But, is there any interest out there? If 10 guys are interested now, I would be ready to throw the dice to spend the bucks for a short production run. I am estimating that I could break even on a 25 unit run.

Hand making a pair of the links takes me 2 hours. Clearly not practical even if I were willing to spend the time. I am only willing to make them for ME at that rate! But, it is the only handle I like to fly now. In fact, I crashed the last plane I flew using a standard handle because it didn't respond as well as I have been accustomed to!  mad-wife

Ray Firkins and Jim Hoffman have flown with my Expo handles and liked them. Perhaps they will toss in their 2 cents here.

Bob was a fixture at the " Greatest Little Airshow " ( the Sussex, NJ Airshow) for many years. I marveled at his piloting skills and will always remember him as always  smiling,  beanstalk tall, bespectacled and wearing his trademark straw hat.

Hi, Frank - that's where I met him. Sussex.

I have always valued knowing about Bob, but never met him. I have modeled his Old Yeller a couple of times, and always put a replica or image of him in the plane. Truly the best "Stick and Rudder" man ever. I only had the fortune to see him perform once, but it was awe inspiring!

Fly high and do 32 point rolls, Bob, while keeping the glass full.  Layingdown

               Dan's engines are two Fox .35's. The inline Fox is currently on a P-47. Dan had the engine on a Bearcat prior to the P-47.   They were very problematic initially. I believe Dan has that sorted out now. I have a F-82 Mustang with twin Fox .35's on it. Ironically, Dan and my son Shawn fly together annually and Dan's inline twin and my F-82 fly from start to finish identically. It's pretty neat. They tend to get pretty risky with these and it's really neat to see them flying inverted inches from the ground with one stacked on top of the other.

   Does anyone know what his 2015 plane weighed?
