Steve,

you are an excellent craftsman, I have a beaver NIB that I hope to get to soon. Your work is inspiring me to get other stuff finished so I can get to the Beaver.

Thanks again Kent,
I know how it is. I had to put the beaver on hold for about a year and now back on it. Should be ready for this coming spring. Good luck on yours!
Keep us posted when you do get going on it.
Steve

It's 28 inches. I had a friend who enlarged the plans to 140%. That was the largest he could do so that's the size I built.

The original Ken Willard design was for a Cox .010 with a 20" wing span. Two channels, rudder elevator. Since I wanted it to be more user friendly, I electrified it and enlarged it.
