That's a nice and smart scheme Rob - very nicely finished too! Good job!

My airframe is built but I have done the fuz, ailerons and empennage in Poly C (just to see what it's like to use) but I now need to prime it and spray it, cover the wings and fit the engine back in.and ready to go.

Thanks for your kind comments Peter and Terry.

I'm sure you'll love yours when it's finished Terry. It's a pleasure to fly.

Same model, just 50% larger. Small model has well over 100 flights now, still going strong!img_0486.jpgimg_0484.jpgimg_0483.jpg

Looking forward to seeing the finished model

Hi Peter, Power will be an electric set up, somewhere around 2500 W should do the job. The model as it is at the moment weighs 1.8 Kg, it will be interesting to see what the flying weight ends up at. If it flies as well as the little one I will be very happy!

I am glad that you like the original so much.

I will look forward to seeing the finished model and hearing how she flies.

Love the big version Richard and looks expertly built. I've enlarged a Colin Usher plan to build a large version of a model and very satisfying it is too. I would have to put an IC engine in it however - maybe a 120 4 stroke!!

img_0692.jpgimg_0690.jpgJust had a very successful maiden flight. Flies a lot like the smaller model, just lots better!

10s lipo, 2940 watts, 18 x 8 prop, auw 6 Kg. Takes off happily at half throttle. Full power is fun! Very happy with this, flying photos to follow.img_0689.jpg

Hi Richard, great model really nice.

For the power train can you say what motor you are using and for the 10S how it is setup e.g. 2*5S in series.

Many thanks

Great to hear that.

It was one of my favourite models until an aileron horn failed at the wrong moment.

OOoooooooooh. I like that big model. These are so much fun I bet the larger one is even more fun to fly. I had mine out yesterday and had such a great time. I'm still geeking out today. I've finally gotten comfortable with it. I've only had a hand full of flights but now it will most likely come to the field with me. Truely feel everyone should build one of these.

Glad you like it so much. I was really fond of mine and used the wing design on other designs.
