Hi, I have and fly this plane My dad left me ... But not sure what it is.

Pretty sure decals are not for this model either.

Perhaps a Miss 2 ? << but they have built up fuselage's

Has Strip ailerons / rudder / elevator / motor

Also, the front of the nose Windscreen forward is built up balsa NOT plastic like in the miss 2.

Also Solid balsa fuselage with formers doubler's etc. and a Solid balsa Rudder

Any help appreciated.

Ok finished today...seems my battery is going to have to go on the wing as it came out a tad nose heavy...i think the motor is larger than it was designed for...but thats ok..I was also able to put a 3s1p 40c 1800 lipo on it.

I set up flapperons...but not sure if I will even be able to use them on a flat wing..we will see...als lots of aileron throws.

took it for a taxi test infront of the house..Taxie's Real nice...so, next will be Maiden...still been too windy here lately.

the finished photos below------------- ...Continue Reading

Ok I have been looking for a decent Sized Profile elec. for awhile.

Went to the "2013 AMA-EXPO" in Ontario Ca. Yesterday...and found this model..that I feel just MIGHT be a Jewel..SO thought I would post a Small build for it...as the Build directions& Pictures are already on Their Website

I Bought the Spitfire..as Their P-51 kit was sold out..My next Favorite was their Spitfire.

The Kit ( Foam/Printed Graphic foam/carbon fiber rods/Lazer Cut Ply parts/ /Graphics-Decals/control horn wire. are in the BASIC kit.& Wraped & Bubble wraped ( a ingenious way..as to Protect & KEEP everything flat and straight) - A+ on packageing .

I also bought the Combo Kit...servo extensions,Motor-( HP-2814-06 Brushless),
25A Esc,Landing gear\wheels\Functioning tailwheel (steers)\Prop\Orng 6ch Rx\

You Download the Instructions off thair website www.MyRcDesigns.com <nice step by stp directions>


First thing I did when I started the buil was download AND read the directions.

Then (just to warm up) I decided to put the X bracket and prop Adapter on the Motor..Simple right? NOT...I could/Can not get the Prop Adapter to Install...Only 1 Screw will engage the threaded part on the motor....I tried rotating the adaptor to align the screws every way...no Go...<dissapointed as I wanted to go fly in a day or so> And this will not be a quick fix...I dont think.

So I went to the website..and sent a message to them explaning my...Continue Reading
