Yes, printed foam and Plantraco gear. Nothing new or innovative, but I enjoy drawing them up. I built (?) a Wildcat, the Dr.1, DVII, Nieuport 11, Waco SRE and an F3F-3 and have various other drawings at assorted stages of completion.
I like the simple construction and the way it results in a low cost, small hall flier. I wasn't so keen on the cost of Plantraco equipment, but with Nano Stik spares available that's no longer a problem. The whole set-up, motor, gearbox, prop, receiver, actuator and battery costs about 3/4 of what I was paying for a Plantraco receiver.

Here are a couple if anyone is interested. I suppose they're pretty old hat by now, but I like them.
