Default Gnat for CX.11

MAN published a plan included in an issue in the last few years and the model was called the GNAT.

It is a little pattern type for .10 engines, 36" span.

I plan of putting an Enya CX.11 with tuned pipe on it.

Anyone have experience with this design?

Thanks, John

Not yet, but I have one partway built for my CX .11 too..

I think I have two copies of the plans too IIRC.

Where in Ontario are you?

Hey, Have you built the Gnat before? It just looks like a winner although I have no experience first hand with it. I like many of the little classics as well. Jr. Falcon to Lazy Bee. That covers quite a span. There are couple other successful pattern planes done in mini size that I wish I could remember. I don't like taking the trailer to field all the time. I think I may be transitioning back to smaller models. I've done the gas thing long enough. I have a real hord of little engines but quite a few big gassers as well. I'm partial to 3W twins and now the Fuji's.
The 86B2 is awesome. Cheap, good value might be fairer.
Take care, John, Oh, BTW, Hamilton

Nah, sorry.. only part way through this one. Looking at the aircraft I have no doubt it will be a winner though, I would charge ahead with confidence. Another nice aircraft I want to build some day is the .15 size Aeromaster thing someone publshed a few years back, but I cannot remember where. I'd have to scrabble through my old mags to find it. Someone here no doubt remembers exactly where and has built two already..

I'm in Mono Township, about 10 minutes NE of Orangeville. We have our own little club nestled in the Hockley Valley.
