BMatthews,

I hear ya! The reason of the pylon is mostly for looks. But i was also thinking on stability since i'm planing on electrifying it with a small motor. The solid wing would probably be good but a ribed one would be even better since the wood that has the preshaped airfoil came in a wood bundle that wasn't of good quality. Last night I built something similar to a stick plane with the plans that somebody previously posted on this thread but boy indoor balsa sure makes a hell'uva difference. Hobby store balsa is of way inferior quality even though it'll work for bigger things.
