Hi All,

After much soul searching and scouring over many, many magazines, etc., the choice of the next Nos. 30 models have finally been chosen.

For Aaron:  Bob Hunt's 1980 Genesis (PA .40 on header muffler)
For me: Bob Hunt's Genesis Mk III (.46, 1978 WC) (PA .51 on header muffler)

Decision made! Layingdown Layingdown Layingdown

HI Derek,

Thanks

Is that a PA 40 UL Aron is considering for the Genesis?  The 35 size Genesis seems like a Teeny plane for the full size case PA 40....

Hi Steve,

The Genesis Aaron is building is the 1980 version, originally flown with an FSR, a good bit larger than the .35 size.  It is longer, but not as much wing as the '78.  The PA .40 should be fine.  Anyway, we don't have a UL............

No worries Bill, I didn't know about the 80 version I guess.  I just thought there was a big version and the 35 version which is quite small.

The Genesis is one of the coolest planes to do a square with. y1

The 1980 Genesis wasn't published.  Bob was taken by Billy's Juno so he went to work on the "BIG" Genesis  which is referred to as MK III, and it came before the '80 version.  I have no clue as to what the MK II was like.  IIRC, he took 2nd at the WC in 1980 to Les.

Several years ago I built a Genesis I.  Widened the fuselage to use a normal 2" tank.

Around 700 sq.in.  Not sure the exact size, but that is what I have heard quoted for the ".46" (MK III)

HI Derek,

Is that the 1978 WC version?  What engine did y'all use?

Thanks!

I now have the foam wings for both these planes.  As soon as I can get back to building these will get started.  At least the son and I will have sort of a "matched pair" for Nos. 30.

And with PA engines the "motor run" should not be any problems, plus plenty of power to fly them as needed. Grin
