if your referring to me (and i'm the only Chris that i know that hangs out here), then i'm sorry, i didn't get an email from you - if your not on my address list, my mail program pretty well deletes it as spam.
Having said that, though - i haven't built planes or arfs for anyone in several years - i just don't have the time anymore. There's lots of people that do, though - Fx Hobbies - listed a thread or 2 down, Plastic Concept planes - http://www.plasticconceptplanes.com , are just the first two off the top of my head.

chris....i didn't want to embarrass myself. i'm 71 yrs old have flown many hrs, a few
r/c. i broke my neck, but i refuse to give up trying to build and fly. i live at home
i have a great shop much to my nurses dis-pleasure. i want to build and fly this plane
at home with my nurses. i need the wings folded like you can taper and fold. being a
QUAD makes somethings a little tuff.
please reconsider or at least know that with out your help
i swear i'll make them out of FOAM,

i'm sorry to hear about your situation, but i simply don't have the time. Between working 50-60 hours a week, running another forum - another 10-20 hours a week, and having a girlfriend, i don't have time to build for myself - I've not built a plane in 6 months or more. There's plenty of arfer's out there who can build tapered wings. But, right now, i just can't.

chris......
i understand, i was just hoping. my son can bend them on the power break. i'm
thinking 60' for top wing and 56' for the bottom. shouldn't be to big for my US46. 12'
constant cord including ailerons. any input is welcome, this is my 1st spad.

With the size Bipe You want to build I think Your looking at a 60 size engine.
Have You tried to contact some of the ARF builders for there input?
Good luck.

tinker, If I figured correctly using 4mm just the coro for those wings would be about 45 oz.! Always good to have a gasser in reserve ... my projectsw seem to turn out heavy

thanks mike,
my nurses and i always end up heavy. like a 4# gentle lady. lol. after that last mail
i was going to add 6"' to the wings and 2' to the cord. i've got a 31 doing nothing also.
it takes me a long time to build a plane, i get about 4 or 5 hrs a week help, so i spend lots of ttime thinking.
thanks tinker
