Hi Surfinmp and all other "Le Fish" owners / builders,

A friend o'mine given me a Le Fish fuselage + her two 1/2 wings (all hot wire cut in EPP).
The wings will allows me a 1.50m Wingspan (60").

Most of our slopes here are not very powerfull and average winds are blowing around 20 to 30Km/h so i was thinking to build a "swiss Le Fish" version.

I was wondering if some of you could indicate me the most important modifications to bring to the original Le Fish blue print - i.e., for exemple, do i will have to increase ailerons or rudder or elevator's size, i think to try to build a madstab so... is there a way to build it easier than another way ?, is it better to cover it with Laminating film or Kraft paper ? (i think the laminating film is lighter), if covering with laminating film : what thickness shall i use ? (i have 0.45 and 0.75 available), what is the "Good AUW " for a Le Fish ?

Thanks a lot by advance for all your answers !

Have a nice day and a lot of fun flights

Best regards

Pascal

@ Jimbo : nice video, thanks for sharing !

I'm looking forward to seeing what you create Pascal.
I'm close to starting my FishRay kit. I'll be aiming for light, but probably won't go the full Swiss cheese route.
