That is one of the most exact scale replicas of any airlpane I have ever seen. The landing gear should move just like the full scale version and the instrument panel is a dead on copy! I wish this plane were state side so I could see it and even try to buy it when this guy get s done with it.

Hi Guys and Gals,
Just realized tonight as I was about to begin the fuselage formers, that I cant find the plan!!!! I cut that section off as i was building the wings, and must have gotten chucked out somehow. Is there anyone out there that would part with the former plans? Totally willing to compensate for plans and shipping and will even return them to you, just cant justify sending topflite 26 bucks plus 20 bucks shipping to canada. I'm 4 hours away from a major center, otherwise I would go to a printer and get the e-version plans plotted, but its not really an option.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
I have the aft section formers, just not the fwd section.

rcgeorge29,

I'm about a week away from starting the formers, and could mail the plans when I'm done, probably late next week. PM me with your email address so we can talk off line.

That would be awesome....I'm going to go to a printer today, and see if he can help, I realized last night that on the former plan there is a scale printed just below the wing, so I'll see if my printer can just get them done individually on 11x17.
Failing that you've got a deal.
email me at rcgeorge@telus.net
cheers

Pat Tritle has started designing a 53" wingspan Reliant that will be one of his lasercut lightweight electric powered designs. This will be a smaller, less time and money investment but great flying model. Take a look at RCG, EZone, Scale Electric Plane forum.

I am just studying the manual and plans of my SR9. I am interested in what exactly must be done to the landing gear to make this thing safe. Easier to do now than later. BUCK.
