Default Scratchbuild 20cc STOL

Good afternoon everyone,

My name is Ricardo Hoeft, I'm 26 and kind of new here in the forum. I usually use the RC Universe as a research tool, but this is going to be my first thread. I'm from Brazil, so I really apologize for any grammar mistakes I might commit.

So, going to the build, this will be my project, based on the STOL Highlander aircraft, with some minor changes. At first it will be powered by a 20cc DLE and will have around 90 in wingspan. All the plans were made in the AutoCAD, but are not quite done yet as you can see.

As materials I'm going to use balsa, 4mm naval plywood and fiberglass for the cowl and landing gear. All is going to be cut by hand, lets see how its going to be.

Hi Dan, thank you so much for the welcome. I'm using the AutoCAD 2014, I use this tool since my 15's for the hobby and nowadays for my work (civil engineer) I really like working with it.

Here is a Pitts that I have drawn in the early 2009. My projects are really simple but that matches my building capability.

And the Santa Claus sled is getting done.

One of the faces of this plywood does not accept finish very well, the wood have a large grain and it's hard to leave it smooth. On the other side is acceptable.

Former reinforcement made from fiberglass and the aluminum wing tube, the sleeve was made from kraft paper with wood glue and a varnish coat to protect from humidity.
