Hey, khodges.Your plane looks great !!! I tried to do the triangle looking stripes & couldn't get them to look right. I ended up w/ the stripes by making a tool out of a 1 by 2 by drilling 2 holes in it the distance apart that I wanted my stipes to be wide. & just cut away.. If ya want to see a real neat stripe job, ( This is an older thread & he shows you how to do a really cool set of stripes) http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_60...1/key_1/tm.htm I hope this link works !!

This was my first trainer. It's a Tower Trainer with OS 40LA. It's been passed from new guy to new guy after I moved on to more challenges. It's still flying today after 7 years.

Jim:

I was thinking about getting one of those. How is the kit for building? And how does it fly?

Bob,
The Force One is an easy and fun kit to build if you have any kit building experience. And it comes out as one great flying plane. When I build mine, I waited some three years before I had the courage to fly it and the maiden was 100% uneventful. The plane just flies great due to Laddie's design. The only challenge is just getting use to it's orientation being different being a delta wing.
Mine by the way is covered in Monokote and is powered with an Irvine .39 engine. The only modification I did in the design was to change the ailerons/elevator to elevons.
Take care...
Jim

Don't look at the messy shop. This was my first attempt at building from plans. It's a "60" size Hots with a "90" Super Tiger for power.
