Beautiful Job! I've built the Pacer and Cessna 170 (love taildraggers) and both are excellent, near scale, fliers. Pat's short kits are unsurpassed in quality and his plans are superb. Just can't give enough praise for his designs.

I've just finished covering my Senorita converted to electric with ailerons and flaps. No trouble at all. I took out half the dihedral while I was at it and made it a taildragger. Just gotta finish up a cowling and install everything.

I had a Seniorita, about 62 inches, and a great flier also. Good choice to start with.

Do you have any grassy slopes near, to fly gliders? Some of these glider kits are stunning, and most have ailerons.

A scale trainer?

Biplane flavor?

SIG Astro Hog 54 biplane kit, 7-8lb, $159.00 19oz/ft^2 . Original plane was the Astro-Hog.

Ailerons are great, as you can side slip to dump off elevation in a controlled way.

Good luck choosing a kit. You're in the big electric motor size.
