CorroStang2 - Strega

I have built another Reno Mustang with a few improvements

Miss America...wingspan 51".......fuselage 37.5".......Spinner 3"

Strega............wingspan 53".......fuselage 34.5".......Spinner 2.4"

I shrunk the fuzz by 8% and increased the wing by 4%

I also built the Strega with 2mm Correx for the fuzz, and the formers. The original Miss America was 1162 grams. The Strega is a bit over 1000grams, but I have added a rudder servo and dont have it totally balanced yet. But I'm not sure using 2mm for the fuzz saved all that much weight

http://www.strega.com/ "Strega" is a highly modified P-51 Mustang, and nine-time Reno National Unlimited Gold Class Champion, Owner/Pilot - Bill "Tiger" Destefani, Pilot - Steven Hinton

anyway, I maidened it yesterday at Lady Slipper in a strong WSW wind, it flew fine, but it really wasnt ideal conditions for CorroScale, as the wind was slipping along the face a bit, was difficult to get good penetration going at this weight.....will get it out to play with the Migs later
