One important thing you might do is use birch ply for the dihedral braces in the top and bottom wing instead of the supplied lite ply. I have seen several planes where the lite ply brace failed and...

RE: Bridi 1/4 scale Corben Baby Ace kit

I think the old RC Modeler magazine did a construction article on this plane which was the basis for the kit. But then I may be mistaken.

RE: Pietenpol Sky Scout

does not look like there would be any shortage of flying space at the track. Maybe you could work a deal and get a club started there.

RE: Pietenpol Sky Scout

The 26 is a great engine but grossly over powered for this plane. If you want to go gas, probably something in the 15-17cc range. Also the 26 is physically too large for the plane. It was designed...
