RE: SYSSA 30CC GAS MADE IN USA

RE: AKM Simple Flier Build, Modify & Fly

RE: AKM Simple Flier Build, Modify & Fly

Over the wing sheeting. This sheeting like the rear upper fuse is laser cut, and has a cutout relief so that the balsa will fit. I soaked the balsa in windex twice and preworked slowly the balsa so...

RE: AKM Simple Flier Build, Modify & Fly

Since I will be clocking my engine to the right side of the plane I have left the front stingers long so that I will have some structure to glue the front bulkhead to. I am only using a 2 1/4"...
