You can buy two sizes of this lovely plane from http://www.pennvalleyhobbycenter.com/

I built the smaller one for a .10 engine and it was a lovely flyer. But it is for experienced builders only.

Do a search on this forum for the keyword "quaker". Someone had a thread going a few months back on his with pics and all.

Thanks everyone for feedback. I 'm going to use an open rocker fs 60. My 3 choices are narrowed to the familiar Kadet Senior.( I've built two of them so far), 84" Quaker, and the 108" Dallaire.
How does the Senior compare to the others. Are they lighter, fragile, harder to build? I'm use to plans, book with pictures.
The Senior had enough sticks for me!

Any help will be greatly welcome. thanks ,chris

The Senior is a nice looking model for sure and I'm sure it flies well but nothing has character like the others in your list. Yes it takes a little longer to make those curved tips but with old timers they will be around for a lot of years. It's worth the time and efforts in my book.

PS: If you want something a little snappier/positive in the handling department go for one that uses polyhedral.

I've got a Roger Hammer Flamingo with poly and while the response is still very trainer like in speed it is positive and responds well even in bad weather. Similarly my electric powered Record Hound handles well regardless of weather.

I redid the old plans and sell them as the Quaker 2000, 105" span, both wings plug into the fuse for easy transport, 5.5lbs flying weight, flies super with a saito .56. Have pistures, and if you go to Joe Nall you've seen it there. I presently fly two of the 105" ones, one with wheels and lights for night flying and one on float. I also fly a 16' span one and a 35" span electric. All have the same color scheme, p.s. i like Quakers....

Mike Sell's son is building it for me. This young man is a real craftsman, and has researched the cowl and logo's for an authentic 30's look.

The graphics and logos (which are still under 'construction') are being reproduced from the Megow plans.

And this is the young man who built it, at his High School Graduation open house (at the local EAA hangar) standing before a table of planes he has worked on for himself and others.
