Sean Curry, Florida, USA, bought a Vailly Aviation Tempest Mk. V in not so scale markings. Power is a 3w75cc, retracts Sierra Precision and weight about 45#'s.

He then went into the shop for a strip and re-finish, and to get it ready for the Top Gun 2015 competition. He did choose the markings of JF-K (JN765). After about six months it was ready for Top Gun and Sean finished in 4th place. Congratulations!!
