The built up tail really looks the part. Well worth the extra work.

Well mine will loop without any problem but I haven't been more adventurous than that so far.

Now where will I get a smoke system for an electric model?

Looking better all the time Earlybird.

Here's some video of the full size doing its thing:

Just remember that any application that is working well never works as well after its been improved!..smiley

Thanks all, I will check out all the specs. FF, which colour scheme did you use. I like the original factory colours.

Cheers Bob


This is the plan Bob, but I've only got as far as the cowl.

I used standard servos on the rudder and elevator and the metal geared from 4-Max for the ailerons.

Considering the amount of work you've already completed it would be a great pity not to finish the model.
I think you'll find that its worth the effort.

Looking good.
It would be interesting to weigh the solid and built up versions of the fin and tailplane just to see what the weight difference is.

07/11/2020 16:54:20

I think I'll have to start over.

05/11/2020 17:31:37

That looks terrific Bob. Welcome to the club!
Having done so much work it would be a shame not to finish it. You've done the difficult bits.

I have always liked the Minimax, another one on my to do list. Doubt there is long enough left to do them all. This thread is reviving my interest to carry on with the Fournier and finish it

What stage are you at with the Fournier Bob?

I have decided that I need more thinking time dont know this design business is not easy for me and yet others appear to have no problem designing and building a model in three weeks. How do you do it Peter?

The cowl is put on hold for the time being and I will make progress elsewhere on the fuselage.

Snakes surprise to glue in place, top and bottom sheeting behind the wing seating.

Cheers beer


I decided that designing is too much work so I leave it to the experts and just follow orders.

I made an Incidence Gauge which was published in the mag a few years ago. It used a mobile phone with the Clinometer App and still works very well.

Great progress and great ideas EarlyBird. I thought I was pushing the envelope by modifying the cockpit area to make it removable!

27/10/2020 22:00:47

Well done EarlyBird, very innovative. I'm too much of a coward to stray too far from the plan!!

Not being brave enough (lazy) to move F1 forward I mounted the battery tray just behind it.


The ESC is located under the tray so to provide some cooling I fitted a small scoop on the underside.


I also hollowed out the cheeks to cool the motor.
Opening up the wheel well and fitting a retract would be really something!

All my feathered friends have been scared off for the time being by a SparrowHawk.

The fin sits on top of the tailplane so it shouldn't be a problem to keep it perpendicular. Having said that mine has a slight lean but don't tell anyone. It probably helps compensate for all the other twists and warps.

16/10/2020 10:46:09

That isn't wrong. It just underlines the model's individuality as opposed to a recycled take-away container!
With the top decking on it will be invisible. Keep building.
