The Phat Phantom flies over Middle Wallop....without pilot?

The Phat Phantom made its maiden flight at a very cold Easter Middle Wallop meeing ........ doing about 60 mph with a Mk 2 Oliver Tiger Cub on a 7 x 6 and oily fuel.... was too cold to fiddle about and I am sure that more performance is available with other props and racing fuel....however the Mk 2 is now nicely run in and back in my display cabinet.....the PP now has its brother engine the Oliver Tiger Cub Schneurle installed and ready for flight testing.....will report on that in due course.....must remark that I had forgotten what a pleasure it is to fly a Phantom ... its handling is impeccable ..... designer Bill Dean certainly knew a thing or two!
