Marks Models Sensor 117

Back in 1986, I built and flew a Sensor 117. Over the years, and many moves, I still have the fuselage and tail feather, but no longer the wing. If there is anyone out there who has a set of wing plans they could let me copy, I'd appreciate it tremendously. I would gladly reimburse for the postage out when I return them. Thanks.

nice job on the Sensor.
Got one in the Shop. I have been thinking about electric conversion.
What motor/prop/ batt/ spinner combo did you use?

Motor – MP-JET AC28/20-7 made in Czech Republic
950Kv. Recommended prop range: 9/5 -14/5
Maximum short term current – 40 Amps

Detrum 40 ESC

Aeronaut CAM 11x6 Folding Prop

GENS 2200 3S 25C LiPo

Measured - 40 Amps @ 11.7 V = 468 Watts

I get 3 climbs to 1000' on one battery and return about 1600 mAh on charge.
