    That sort of shape is more correctly called a "rogallo wing". You'll find more information if you run your searches using that term.

    The size will come down to how fast or slow you want it to...

    See if you can find the stuff locally to mix your own. There's lots of recipes and how to's if you google for "home made model diesel fuel".

    I always knew that the little Enya preferred running slower but your figures sure do showcase it.

    Clearly you're also going to have a nice light model which won't need a whole lot of power. So...

    That's your choice but the Enya will be drastically over proped with an 8x6. It'll be more prone to running overly hot with that much prop. It'll also be running too slow with that much prop to...

    I've never traced anything over. It's not a fast way but I use a pin to poke a series of witness holes through the plan and into the wood. If it's for plywood parts then I use some carbon paper I...

    An 8x6 is way too much for the Enya .09. 8x4 at the most. To get the most power without lugging it you want to use a 7x4 or 7x5.

    I know that such props look small on the Enya. But that's mostly...

    My old early Enya .09 was not a strong engine but it made up for it by being easy to start. Your Isabella looks like a model that will do just nicely with the Enya.

    Check out the sticky thread with links to plans sites too.

    As Mark suggested there won't be a lot of such plans. You might be looking at doing something of a modification to some other existing...

    Edit function is wacky. Sorry for the added reply.

    The other way to do this if you don't want to bend your brain with trig is to simply draw up a small scale diagram. Like 1/8 inch per inch of...

    The trailing edges would be higher but not by as much as you're thinking. You can't add the angles directly like you are doing.

    The vertical height from an angle like this is related to a...

    0-0-0 is more what you want on a seriously hot aerobatic setup. Something the TM most certainly isn't.

    On a model with positive stagger such as the TM has it's normal to rig the upper wing to be...

    Silk would be fine at first. But as a buddy that flew lots of gas powered old timers for many years found out silk tends to rot in the sunlight when finished in clear dope. We were flying at the...

    That's perfect. You'll most certainly want to use some nice pine or other supple yet strong woods for the main longerons. And even doing the stringers from suitable pine or bass would not be a bad...

    80 inch span is going to be too small for that engine. If you're at all good with light building then it'll produce that situation where even at idle the model won't want to glide down. Go a full...

    I replied on this topic over on "that other place" already. But one that comes to mind from seeing this again is a model which is on my "must build" list. It's the Comet Golden Eagle. You want...

    AH HA! Found you Gearhead.

    Sorry but I did something to the message you sent me and it went away. Not sure why.
    Anyway you've got your answer now so I can delete that other post I started.

    I was going to mention an issue with that but since you took care of it you'll be fine.

    I suspect it now looks a bit like a glider for wing span to fuselage length.

    Scale models tend to have taller gear too. So ti may need more or less than used on typical sport models.
