Astro Jeff - Best Darn Woody  XC
WS 157"
The fuse is NOT in two pieces!!!! The whole fuse would not fit in the pic - so I used two different fuses in the picture above!!

Astro Jeff short kit $275 (shown above) [plus actual shipping cost]

As you can see the Astro Jeff is a very sweet looking plane when ready to fly. ...And it does so like to fly
