I got ahold of Flying Models to see if they have digital copies of their plans to send off to a kit cutter.

They replied no, but said they had recently acquired a laser cutter and could put together a complete short kit.

Sounds good to me!! They said they should have more info for me next week.

Well, it has taken a bit more time that I had hoped, but I am very close to finalizing the part cut files for the 52-inch version of the Twin Lizzie II for Shaun. At this point I plan to offer a full set of the sheet balsa parts, with mat board templates for some of the blocking. Watch the Flying Models plan site for updates and pricing.

Hello together

I am now officially resurrecting this thread, as another Twin Lizzie is being built.

After having stumbled over Denis build thread of the Twin Lizzie 2+ by accident last spring, I kind of couldnt forget about the plane and ordered the plan set too. After studiying the plans, which by the way were of excellent quality, I decided to stop searching for a kit cutter and going old school with the build.
So after having finished the ongoing project ( a 27 feet glider also in wood construction) I started cutting the parts in early September. The build kind of grew on me and after about two months I am now already at a stage where I can see the end already.
Except for the nacelles all mayor components have been finished and given a rough sanding and the nacelles will be ready for installment too.
I have to say, I am enjoying the build greatly, as this is a well thought out plan /plane. That must be also the explanation why I did get this progress with a full time job and a family with two kids...;-) Anyway, I have now ordered the cowl from Fiberglass specialities and I looking forward to their delivery.

In general I followed the plan pretty closely, the only deviation yet is the installation of two small 9gramm servos in the elevator for the rudders instead of the pouchrod assembly, and the construction of a battery hatch in the nose as I intend to go electric.

This brings up my main point for this post. Did anybody build, or know about a build of the TL2+ with electric power? I am looking around for possible options for a power train. I am looking here more for endurance than for raw power.

Lookig forward to your feedback.

Best regards

Robin
