As mentioned in the magazine that there is a build blog, what else can I do than start posting my pics and because shooting pics is fun to do, I have a lot of them to post in here.

The Rata I16 and Tempest are good fun to fly but a little bit more difficult to build than my earlier P51 and FW190. But I think with the help of the pics it should be no problem at all.

If you have any question please ask, or if you have start your own build please do post your pic in here.

Lets start with the Rata smiley

This is the prototype location of the servo it should go as much as possible forward to get the cg without to much lead.

Will be back for more pics.

I am building a RATA, will let you know how it flies when done.

Already spotted a number of errors/issues with the plans

1. Slot sizes in Ribs wrong for spar

2. Parts numbering not correct

3. Aileron Spar incorrectly sized

Also if your UK you will be using 1/16 Balsa (1.6mm) not the 2mm on the plan so adjust the slot sizes etc to suit.

JD8 , yes have seen your post on the Rata great looking model, but not yet read the post.

Will have a look maybe I can help.

Tim, Great your building the Rata and sorry for the mistake on the drawing, even more sorry because its my mistake.

I seem to have switched the numbers on the part W1 should be the mainspar and 2mm balsa , W3 is the trailing edge and 3mm balsa. I even have checked the plan from RCME but totally overlooked the mistake crying

fout nummering rata w1 en w3.jpg

Here is a pic of my original drawing with the mistake on the parts crying

The slots in the ribs should be okay for the right mainspar of 2mm balsa.

The aileron spar is correct and oversize and should be cut to correct size when glued in place.

Cheers Ton

Hi all, After a number of years (10 or so) out of the hobby things have moved on quite a bit, could someone kindly point me in the right direction / web site for make and model for: 1-lipo battery 2-speed controller 3-motor. Apologies for probably what everyone will see as stupid questions but the last time I flew I was using glow fuel on a FF7 on 35mhz I need some thing small and fun to build and play with. Thanks Garry
