Default Great Planes Sequence 120?

Hey guys,

Ran across this while looking at Tower tonight. I couldn't find any details, but looks like it could be a great entry level pattern plane.

I assume it is a balsa fuse.
It also explains why they discontinued the original (smaller) Sequence

Weight and wing loading seem a bit high...

Interesting - comparing to the Venus II, the plane got bigger and heavier but wing area got smaller, despite larger wing span. Note that most of us flew the VII with a heavier motor or batteries than listed, so the AUW was probably higher than what was published. That plane flew nicely. I hope the Sequence 1.20 picks up where the VII left off. It is an interesting looking airplane. It will be good to see one in person. I have a feeling a cowl/canopy mod will be common

Here are specs comparing Venus II and Sequence 1.20:

Wingspan: 66 in (1675 mm) 71.5 in (1815 mm)
Wing area: 866 in² (55.9 dm²) 836 in[SUP]2[/SUP] (53.9 dm[SUP]2[/SUP])
Weight: 8.5-9.5 lb (3860-4310 g) 9.75-10.75 lb (4420-4870 g)
Wing loading: 23-26 oz/ft² (69-79 g/dm²) 27-30 oz/ft[SUP]2[/SUP] (82-92 g/dm[SUP]2[/SUP])
Length: 69.5 in (1765 mm) 73 in (1855 mm)

FWIW, there are 2 NIB Venus II for sale in the Classifieds over on "Are" "See" "Gee" "Comm"

And I agree regarding the weight and loading...

I'd bet they are just using the area of the wing panels themselves, not the area included in the fuse. Looks like a nice model to me. I had the original Sequence and it won Masters rounds with it.
