You read my mind! A backyard version!
Tres, i built and flew the backyard version already, awesome plane, it sounds like a pod racer from star wars when you roll on high rates, and 3 foot loops with elev-flap mix on...

Mike hall, if you go to paul swanys website (the re-designer of the taco and the designer of the taco lite) youll find laser files......

Just remember to laterally balance the beast, i end up with a quarter taped to a wing tip on my 800 mah packs and a penny with lipoly packs

Start with LOW rates, 55 degrees on the elevator is real touchy, even with 50% expo

CG is about 1/4-1/2 inch behind the spar, and even at 27 inch span, at 14 ounces it floats in, and the gas version floats in at 2+ lbs, so 24 ounces should be perfect
