Old Foamie,

both wings are 21" wide, wing root is 11" tip is 8 3/4"
Fuse is 28 1/2" long and 12" 1/2" were the wings mount.
elevator is 14 1/2" 8 1/4" at the root 6 3/4" tip
rudder is 11" tall and 2 1/2" at the widest point.

I dont have any cad programs, but I am going to dl Google Sketch up tonight so maybe I can draw up some plans next week.

Gpw, yeah Im an ok Heli pilot so using the left thumb comes automatic.

I don't think the wing incidence is off, further investigation last night revealed no down or rt thrust in the motor this explains "WAG theory" the reason for the right rudder trim. (I said left rudder trim in the original post but it should be right sorry) and the climbing under throttle.
I shimmed the motor 1/16" down and right so I will try that first.

A couple of things, the original plans call for the ailerons on the bottom wing and their all up weight was 50 ozs.

I almost forgot the fuse is two pieces laminated with two 1/8" fiberglass rods running the full length.

See she did really fly! Thanks for the pics Wayne!

check out this landing.

Wing didnt break just bent the landing gear!
