Default RE: Avionnette HM-8 build thread.

Thanks for the link, John. Sorry for the trouble, but as you say, at least now you know how to do it!

That's the same construction article that accompanies my plan, so yes, the design requires all of the bracing wires. It all looks intimidating at first, but once you dive in, it all starts making sense - it helps to have the article, but I don't think it's a necessity.

I plan on building the extended (50") wing model, and perhaps I'll add ailerons too. Although there's no published weight, I'm hoping to keep mine around 24-28 ounces - if it looks like it'll come out light, I'll add the ailerons.

Again, thanks for the link...
