I have a guy that I built the Bonanza for, the Chipmunk plans are on the back.
I'll ask him to see if he can scan them and mail it to me. Just send me your email and I should be able to send them to you...provided you're not in too much of a hurry

Better still, they are on Outerzone so you can download them there and just have them printed

I saw that and thanks so much. I was not sure if up-scaling it would be all that accurate. Let me look into it.

BTW, I built the P-51 years ago and it flew great, but the swap to a TD 09 really changed things.

The Bonnie I did for a customer last year got a TD .09 in it...he still has to maiden it but first has to find the courage...the bird was done in the colour scheme of his late father's full size so has lots of sentimental value behind it.

Is it a 2 channel? MY P-51 was easy to fly with no bad habits....an underhanded hand launch at about 20-30 deg was all it took. And this was all mid 1970's technology. Can you send photos?

You should try to contact Paul Stenberg at House of Balsa. They are in California. I used to have an e-mail address for Paul, but don't know if I could find it? Good luck.
