Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane

Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane

This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Jeff Muller! This beautiful Sig Four Star 20 EP was built from a kit Jeff purchased at Anchorage House of Hobbies! With a wingspan of 48" and a 38" overall length, this plane comes in weighing just a bit over 2.5 lbs. Power is provided by a 40-class electric 850 motor. Jeff decided to put on slightly larger 3" wheels and added an air exit hole for additional cooling. He says his pilot is a friendly Russian! To top it all off, it only took him three weeks to put this kit together and he already has his eyes on his next build! Jeff took home a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies for his excellent craftsmanship!

JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
