Robert, Sorry I don't have any plans. I don't document things very well when I build--Just draw the design out on paper,then trace that onto balsa.
Some additional specs I didn't mention in 1st post are:
Wing chord - 6 1/2"
Elevator - 13" X 4"
Vert Stab - 5" X 3"

You are right,my wife loves it--You can't see in the photos, but there are three windows on each side below the wings, ala Lazy Bees, that she wants to put pictures of the grandchildren in.

A wierd thing happened my last flight with it today--I heard this flapping noise coming from it at about 100 ft alt. It started to lose altitude so I brought it in. The little set screw that holds the motor in the mount had come loose and the motor was rotating hanging by the elec wires. One of them had broken but I managed to solder it together These little Park 250's are great--lots of power for the size.
Good luck if you try one----My theory on these little slow flyers is no warps, CG forward a lot initially, zero or slight decalage/incidence and keep the weight down. I ended up about an ounce more than I was shooting for but it still worked out OK.
