I built a full size zipper with a sparky up front. It flew off. Would prefer something a little more sedate, I am sure someone will bite your hand off for that though. Anything else, was thinking more English grounds.

How about these designed for the Clan 0.25? Should be ok with a 0.2. What engine do you plan on using?


Mini Cardinal

Little monster

December 2014 Aeromodeller had a plan for "The Dwarf", hi wing pylon designed in 1949 by Dave Hilliard for the K 0.2 or Kalper 0.32 diesels.

Should take less than a week. Also shows the r/c conversion.

How about a Vic Smeed Tom Thumb which is a 22" version of the Tomboy. Quick and easy to build if time is short

This is ideal for very small diesels IMO

If it is the MK1 Hawk the Tom Thumb is not really the best. The Hawk is quite a lot larger and heavier than the Bambi it was designed for so the nose needs lengthening by about an inch. I built one for mine, and lengthened the rear of the fus by 2" as well. Still needed lead at the back

Ever seen the Humbrol Hornet ? I once built a rubber powered version and it flew very well .

Here it is a free download. A simple modification to the nose would do the trick?
