A really cool little plane ,so decided to build it .
Using my usual materials of white,blue foam,carbon fiber,depron and news print.
I enlarged a peanut scale pencil drawing up to approx 1/6 scale which gives my around 37 in w/s.
A nice park flyer size.
Power is a turnigy 1050kv motor with a 18 amp esc on a 1300ma 3s battery.
3 x HXt900 servos on 2.4 radio. Aiming for a AUW of round 500 gms.We will see at the end.
