Made one of those quite a while ago from the Mercury plan, originally for a Mills but it proved difficult to operate so I converted it to electric. Cannot find my pics of it for some reason. I use a micro Rx, a servo on each aileron plus rud and ele. 500mA/h 3s battery. In order to turn properly you must mix in about 30% rud with aileron otherwise you just get adverse yaw. Still going strong and actually won a prize once. It is covered in yellow Litespan.

That's interesting Martin, it sounds like you went for quite a light rc setup, mine doesn't have ailerons so no adverse yaw to worry about!
