Something I designed and built recently.
Norvel .049 and a 370 electric version as well.

More pitures here.

Default Nice!!!

David,

Very nice looking! And big ailerons to boot!!!

Can you provide some of the specs.

Did you get to run it with the 370 electric setup?

Thanks, Bill

Bill,

It has a
wing span - 39.375" , tip to tip
Cord - 6.75"
Length - 25.75", firewall to rudder end.
All up weight of 445 grams ( 15.7 oz)

I haven't flown the electric version yet since I haven't
finished it yet....still need to cover it. I expect it will
weight about the same, or less as the gas version.

Didn't include the ailerons on these first 2 but all I'd
have to do is build a new wing. I designed it so it can
be built in different configurations.

Sure I can sell you a copy of the plans if you want.
$10 which will included the cost of mailing them.
