Citabria and Mosquito

here's my two lastest printed tissue planes. the Mosquito was done a while ago for the X-Twin/AA electronics. i've been meaning to get a video of it, but i keep getting distracted with other projects, namely the Citabria with Gordon Johnsons graphic files (you can see his in the first picture in this thread).

i just finished it last night after a couple days of working with it. i got something like a maiden today, i didnt have enough room to ROG into flight, but it did have the power to lift off. and a bad hand toss resulted in a crash into a box full of metal parts, resulting in a broken gearbox. i removed the gearbox and made it DD and will try it tomarrow.

RX is from the SpinBlade heli, .6g actuator, 130mah cell from AA, LG from an Estes airplane, 7mm SS motor. 13" wingspan and the AUW with the ex-gearbox was just a hair over 20 grams. it should fly quite nicely when i change to a geared 6mm and a smaller cell.
