    I built a 36 inch span "Yuvenko" or "Mejzlik" style plane for a .049 Fora and only flew it for sport. It's built too light to survive abuse [too many bits and pieces and labor], but I like the idea...

    These relatively heavy pylon racers don't fall within my qualifying statement about the importance of airfoil design VS wing loading.

    I built and flew dozens of 1/2 A RC combat wings that were all identical except for the airfoils.
    36" x 7" and 12 ozs or so when new.
    We flew hundreds of "combat hours" over a period of several...

    If the wing loading is low enough, the airfoil isn't very important. I'd keep the airfoil simple, smooth and 8% to 10% thick. A thin airfoil will slow down adequately for dead stick landings. A fat...

    LOL...!

    I have to admit that it is a good looking kit from the postage stamp sized photo I looked at.
    It would make an interesting subject scaled for 1/2 A power.

    This is certainly a good design to try different wings with.
    If you have a pair of easy to start engines, running twin .049s can be addictive.

    I had a 16 inch prop lose it's blades during a climb and it tore the engine loose from the firewall. It was only turning 9500 or so on the ground.

    I liked to test feasibility with the old Thrust HP Calculator and it's nice to have a simple replacement.

    My results with the Blink weren't with a fresh engine. I'd say this engine is at best a "serviceable specimen"...but there is quite a degree of variation between good examples.

    The 107 mph figure is getting right up there with those Utah Racers.
