I started this last year then got side tracked on other things. Tom Crump let me post a couple of pictures on one of his threads, but I figured it was time to make a thread on this plane.
First I'm building to teach my grandson to fly RC, it's not to make a plane for me to fly, I have plenty, so there's no rush on this one. I had him try flying my LT-40, but that didn't workout for a couple of reasons, but now he's going to be 8 and I think he's matured enough to try again.
I wanted electric because the nitro plane's noise scares him, and I wanted to do it in silk and dope because they just look so much nicer. I've used no CA, just wood glue and Ambroid, old school
I made some sanders for doing the round edges of the fin and stab from a deck of cards I bought at the dollar store, and I changed the out line of the stab/elevator and fin to make it look nicer.
