DECATHLON House of Balsa SchoolYard scale

This is a very nice kit from House of Balsa. It's the Decathlon, Kit K-21, school yard scale for .061 engines. It was a no brainer conversion to electric with the Hacker A20-20L going on the firewall and the battery going in the fuselage above the LG. With a Tronics 3s1800Lipo, the AUW was 20oz. It flies well at 1/2 throttle and will do all basic aerobatics including knife edges.
The list price is $59 but by shopping around, I found one for $39.

I didn't make any attempt to lighten the plane. The body is solid balsa sheeting as are the tail surfaces and the ailerons.
