atom 001.jpgatom 002.jpgHere's mine then....free plan, built mostly out of scrap box and something different. I cut the paper templates out and just drew around them. F3 I stuck 1/2 balsa on instead of putting 1/4 on F3-F4

Yep it will be a quick build Chris, Glued all the formers together ready for assembly. Will stick with two fins but increase rudder size a little, mast /boom will bolt on and going with a t/wheel.

How many benches have you got, I'd never get anything finished if I had 3 on the go at the same time.

Might have a go at a little one like this though, especially if it's easy to setup and fly.

Don't know how it steers yet but after ground handling problems with the Dawn Flier I have put a castoring tail wheel on mine.

That's winter and limited flying for you. Your mojo will return when you maiden the Atom, although I don't think it'll be as intense as the PC!
