The old Bean was too broken up to fix any more after teaching me to stunt fly so I did a total re-design.

A Carl Goldberg Li'l Satan, in the original box.

I had an old box kit from 20 years or so ago collecting dust. I had borrowed some parts and cannibalized it till it was FUBAR. I picked through it, punching out what parts remained. Makes you appreciate laser-cut kits these days.
I had all the ribs but the rest was either missing or suffering from age. The balsa was all pretty cruddy looking so I bought new wood and cut out new parts. At least I had the plans. So I'm excited about this one. It will burn up the sky like I love to do.

Here's the thread I started in the 1/2A forum

This build is postponed due to my finding a 20 year old Goldberg Li'l Satan combat plane collecting dust in my shop. It will do what I want from a plane without my having to ask as many questions and possibly end up with a Kludge.

I'll post a link to the Satan build soon.

I'm re-making a plane that I wore out. Hopefully it will be better, but I'll at least learn some things about building.

Here's where I put videos of my flying excursions as I teach myself how to stunt with my 1/2A pocket rockets.

I have some recent videos of my Li'l Satan flying. Finally got her all trimmed and flying right. She's a hot ride!

Surf fishing at Pawleys Island South Carolina. Taking the boat too so we can troll for Flounder in the creek. Too many people to bother with the CL planes in the Summer. During winter the beach at low tide is a great place to fly. Windy, but steady, so it's predictable. I doubt if anyone will actually see this, but if you do, I'll see you in a week.
