Naming the Baby

Thanks everybody for the comments and name suggestions. I just call her Baby BB. Before I was fomenated, I built a small guy from Backyard Flyer mag. It is the Ord Hume Homebuilt, an all balsa model. AUW for the plane is 5.5 oz. with a ws of 23". Thing is she needs a really big backyard because she flies more like a little P-51 than an old homebuilt. I took the electronics out to build Baby BB. Both planes are similar in size but Baby BB only weighs 3.5 oz. Just goes to show you what you can do with foam to reduce weight. Doesn't look like I will fly it today so I think I'll soak some foamboard and tackle the wings on the P6E which has been severly neglected due to this onset of BluBaby Syndrome. Bob
