Default anyone have minimaster pics

Hey Lew Andrews fans,

What does the minimaster look like? I have never seen specs on one or pics and am quite curious. I see Lazer Works offers short kits for less than $50.00. anyone sitting on a kit or old pics to show?

It's essentially a .25 sized Trainermaster. Do search in this forum for either, lots of Trainermasters have been built this year as it is the VRCS model of the year so you'll find several photos.

Also check Early RC's website for photos of the Trainermaster including contruction shots.

I think that the wing is tapered slightly, with a straight trailing edge.

Hi, The Mini Master did indeed have a tapered wing.

The fuselage was similar to the Trainermaster but slightly different.

The size was for a .25 or smaller.

Here's a couple of pictures of one of the ones I had.
This one was the first production Mini.
This was also the one used in the construction photos.

The one on the cover of the box was a pre production one.
It had a built up wing with no sheeting.

Last picture is a Trainermaster and a Mini.

Cool,
I had run into references to this plane but was not familiar with it. I will stick to the biplanes for now...SOOO many planes SO little time

SEMI SEMETRIC airfoil I presume?

Wish you hadn't told me that, now I might have to look into the standard size Trainermaster.[:-]

nothing wrong with symmetrical,
i think it ( the TRAINERMASTER) with symmetric wings would be a fine sport plane. more aerobatic than I had thought it would be.
I'm just saying ... now I have another plane I would like to have....How could this happen and what will my wife say???
