Here is the video

Plane has been been hanging in the basement for a while.
I had to use some of the radio gear in another project/plane.

If you had to do it all over again, what would you do differently?
I would probably use square hardwood dowel stringers along the length of the fuse similar to this.

Once the airframe had a little time on it, it started to loosen up and twist in rolling maneuvers.
That made the plane a little less precise.

I have some questions, perhaps too late:

1) What are root and tip % thickness in ML Spattern wing.
2) Is that a 1.125'' O.D. wing tube in photo #10
Thanks for comments

JC

Wing tube O.D. is 1"

Root spar thickness is 2"

Tip spar thickness is 1.25"
