My suggestion is, reinforce the front wing hold down alot, I've had a couple where the wings parted company when you overpower them. I don't know if you'll really like the TT in there, it will be pretty heavy, you'd probably do better with a hot 25 or a 30 size heli engine.

Planes looking good though dude!!!

Jeremy,


I have had one before and i took care of the over power issue. I flew one with a 25fsr on it and loved it. I do have a 32sx I am thinking of using. I am getting measurements for a TH .46. Those 79 buck motors sure do perform. we have alot of guys in the group with them and they hual plane. lol If the tower hobbies .45 fits, imma get it.

I have a screamin Pico .45. 2.2 hp @ 28,000 and she will do it. I have it on a 44 inch span 4 pound profile edge, I measured it and I can make it work but with a few mods that I dont really wanna do, but I sure would like to see it screamin on the wonder. lol If this one does well with the .44(or whatever I use) I may make one with about 4-5 inches more wing and put the Pico on it.


Who knows what Imma do. I am in the middle of building 4 planes so things change daily with me.

I put a Nelson .40F1 engine on a wonder, the wing eventually parted company with reinforcement LOL!!!!! If I build another it will be 4 bolts and the plates will be fiberglassed in really heavy!

I actually have 4 bolts, wood that runs the full length of the fuse from side to side, and i even inserted dowels for bands for that extra extra hlp. I am going with the Pico motor as I sold the profile it is on to a friend. I cant wait to have to change my britches after flying it. lol

Default Nelson on a Wonder

Yeah, I like it! Strap one of those on a Wonder and you might even beat a Dust with a Jett 50!

Seriously, there isn't much to a Wonder and that's what it's all about, overcoming weight and drag with thrust.

Might just have to try that one of these days!
