Peter, so 60in span and .21 engine. When can we look forward to the plan in RCM & E?

The plan was submitted a couple of weeks ago but I have the Roamer plan coming out first (Next month) so it will be three or four months at least.
 
that  decision is up to the editor.
 
The flaps are terrific. I came in at 20 feet up and with fifty feet to the end of the runway I popped full flap and landed before the end of the runway. If I hadn't it would have been miles beyond.

It hasn't been waiting long. The plans have only recently been released for home builders. There are only a couple flying at the moment but lots of plan sets have ben sold.

I like the plan Peter, a little bit different, so I am looking forward to it as my winter build. I have a new OS 30 4S lurking in my shed looking for a home and wondered if it might be suitable for the Luciole? A little heavier than the 21 you used but then the design needed three Oz of lead in the nose for the C of G. Would the front end need a little beefing with the four stroke? I am considerind an electric alternative which might work with the right motor/battery combo. Decisions, decisions!

Yes, YOur FS 30 will be more than enough power. I don't really think it will need any beefing up. I use the same construction for .32 two strokes.
 
Don't ask me about electrics. I don't know.

Somewhere in the 300-400 watts range, I think.
 
Lovely looking model there Peter!
