I just eyeballed the airfoil. I've found that the smaller you go in size and weight [at least with RC planes]..the airfoils become less critical. I've never spent any time to speak of with control line stunters this small, though.
Until I see this thing fly, my thinking is that ''speed is my friend''.......then I'll have something to go by if it ends up being too fast to do a recognizable pattern with.
Might have to take some pitch out of a MAS 7x3 prop...?
The tank is a Hayes 2 ouncer, which is the most trouble free I've found in this size. It better be, because it's built into the plane now..!
Cutaway, after seeing this plane all framed up...it wouldn't look bad with more wing..maybe double or triple tapered....somewhat sportier looking. As it sits now it might fly more like a combat plane with a hot .09 diesel..?
I'll know better after seeing this thing fly whether I got it right or not. I'm hoping for a steady pulling plane that can keep me from biting my fingernails when I go for some overhead maneuvers.
After doing a little bit of snooping around I've decided to use thinned white glue and silkspan to cover the fuselage.
I've never tried thinned white glue before..only dope or polyurethane.
Then shoot it with silver Klasskote epoxy paint. The wing ought to be OK with silver monokote. Finding the ''right'' silver monokote is the trick. One variant shrinks nicely and is easy to work with...the other [aluminum.IIRC.?] is a *****.
Trying for a military look, it won't matter so much if it ends up a little bit ''rough''....
