I have many photos, a 6 page build write-up, a cd of the plane flying. I just posted it yesterday afternoon and have a life. What I don't have is any experience with this site or the skills to post stuff on it. And I have a thin skin.

The seller of this plane (me) built it over a 5 year span from Cleveland Plans originally of a 50" rubber band model. I bought the enlarged (150") plans from Cleveland after a few requests of them over a couple of years. I then modified the plans for RC electric. The plane is not built to support the vibration of a piston engine. For instance, I have used aluminum fittings where brass would be needed otherwise. The airfoil on the plans was under -cambered and only 1 inch thick. This has been modified to a sorta Clark Y of inch and 5/8 or so. Otherwise it is pretty much scale. I have flown the plane once. It is a kitten.
