I can confirm Denis' post above. The nylon bolts shear and the struts (which only need to worki in compression) do not hinder the lower wings departure from the situation.

The upper wing is bolted on with M4 sized machine screws and will likely need the ply lugs gluing back in, if the ground attempts to forcibly detach the wing.

I learned all of this, immediately after learning its dislike of low speed manhandling, during a landing approach.

The 40 sized one will be as docile as any model you'll find, I think. It has gobs of wing area and turns out lightly loaded even up to around 8lbs. Denis I believe has one of the larger ones.

The 25 is simply a heavy model for its size, with all the attendant characteristics thereof. If I scratch built on I think it would come out a pound lighter. But with kit wood... Anyway, keep it moving and its golden. Start jabbing in rudder corrections with the nose held high and no power and it'll drop a wing, which should have been no surprise to me. The trick to landing the small one is not to slow it up like a slick low winger, but to fly it in on 25/30% right up to threshold and then cut.

In truth it is a nice design and fun to fly, is a good aerobat, and looks great in the air. I would love a 40 sized one (which I think, is really a 60 sized air frame) - hence why I have a 40 size bipe project next in my build queue.

Not a new model, not even mine - rescued from a skip at Don Valley, with a load of good servos and other bits. So repaired and converted the Agritug to IC , the engine was £3 from a Swap Meet, so it costed £3, plus £14 for the Hitec 2.4 rx.

Bored, due to weather, so getting some old wrecks back in the air again, just done a Wonder 60 size.
