I see both of Gary's B2Bs are for sale on Barn Stormers. Someone will get a good deal on either.

Although I have had love affairs with many aircraft, the Brantley holds a special place in my memory. They are delightful. Plenty of power and very smooth.

The back story on how they came to be is well worth a read. Mine was a B2 and the B2B is even better.

They always looked like a flying ice cream cone to me.

Unfortunately, the service ceiling is too low for my locale, where the summer density altitude is usually 9-10,000 feet.

Reportedly, the fuselage is a cone that requires no compound Curves.

Also reportedly, Mr Brantley invented two way stretch material incorporated into the Playtex Living Bra. I have limited experience with that garment, so have not investigated the report

Thank you Jim. I knew I wasn't performing the right word search when I inserted "Brantley B2B."

JR,

Over the years, I heard others call the original B2 the "Flying Ice Cream Cone."

There was a B2B that was painted as a U.S. Army YHO-3. If I owned a B2B, I'd certainly replicate that paint scheme.

As I understand, replacement rotor blades and other parts are difficult to obtain since the PRC company, Qingdao owns the type certificate and manufacturing rights from Brantley to build V750 UAVs

Junk in, junk out. My auto correct has accepted my typo error and now spells the work with an "e." So much for AI.

Wayne
Me too! I owned a B2 for over 10 years and it will forever have a superfluous "e" in the name;)

Hi Jim, We had an overseas buyer for both Brantlys but the overwhelming logistics forced us to cancel the deal. They will be for sale again soon, but on a different platform. I'll keep everyone posted here.
