Congratulations, Tim and Darren.  Saw the pics and video on Facebook and these things look and sound awesome!  Well done.

Greetings All! Today was a good day in Texas as Darren and I flew our Radial powered keets for the first time. Four years and two months since visiting Blakesburg to see one up close and get Barry to give us the scoop on how to build a Rose Parrakeet.  Two of the three flew today and the third is not that far behind. They flew great and we will post some video as soon as Darren's son shows us how. Thanks to all who helped with the project, we received a good amount of sage advice that we weighed heavily and sometimes listened to. Special thanks to Barry for setting the bar so high and trying to keep us on track.

Thanks Howard. 
Yep, we are very pleased with how they are turning out.   I love the radial engine look.  It might disturb the purist out there..... oh well. 
It's been almost four years now.   Much work to do but the end is finally in sight. 
I would love to post more pics on this sight but I'm not sure how to go about it.   It seems there is little interest now.  Maybe we can change that.

Search you tube "rose parrakeet airplane" and you will find a video my son recently posted of taxi testing in parrakeet #3.  Myself and Tim Barrow also in the video.  Finish work and covering to begin soon. 
Parrakeets #2 and #3 should be flying by spring. 

I posted this by mistake in another category. 

Exciting times now in San Antonio.   I will post more pics and info if there is interest.  It seems this site has been a little inactive lately.....

My son posted a video of himself taxiing Parrakeet number3.  Myself and Tim Barrow also in the video. 

Parrakeet number 2 is in a similar stage of construction.  Soon we will be taking everything apart and doing cover and finish work.  Hopefully these two will be flying
 by spring.

I would love to post some more pictures on this site.....if someone can tell me how. ;-)

Paul, what are you really looking for here? The A-1 has a gross of 728 lbs, and the A-4C gross was increased to 860 lbs. Empty on the A-1 was about 470 and on the A-4C is about 565. I've seen some homebuilts list their gross at just over 1000 lbs, but I've never seen any stress calculations to justify that. Fuel load is between 10 and 12 gallons unless you build a 1 piece wing and put a tank in the upper center section. Again, there are no drawings or other design info to support that.

I would like to ask if anyone is able to post weight and balance figures for an O-200 powered Parrakeet, or if not available any other info that would help me to work it out.  I'm considering the keet as a potential project but would like to make sure that I understand its capabilites from a W&B perspective first.

Thanks in advance.
