Part 1 is 5.57 MB and the limit is 5. Can't upload, let me see what I can do.
Maybe part 2 is what you need. The wing details are in Part 2, let me know.

Most people on the forums today never heard of a Sachs, they were top of the line back in the good old days. Can you please share the flight characteristics of this plane?

it fly's like a big trainer no bad habits
stalls are clean just drops the nose no tip stalling tendencies
mine weighs in at 42 pounds.
it needs a 3rd scale full body pilot but i cant afford one

Thank you for the feed back, just might build it someday! Working on a RCM 33% Champ right now. I hope to keep it near your 42 lb make.

Thank you for that, No such luck,

Really keen on a 35% Decathlon, But having trouble finding one, Emhw do one, But the Price Shipped to Aus is Huge.
I have the 33% Plans for Wendels design but dislike the squashed cab height on that one.

What is the length of this moden inc spinner? 95" i would think?

Any help would be great.
