Stevens Aero S-Pou 300
Sounds like a NASCAR raceThis is still a micro size right???
Well this is my first in posting a build log. I got a Stevens Aero kit from a great friend of mine that he wanted me to build for him. So I did it and took these photos of my build. I built a micro version of this before and I love how it just lazily flies around with it's French pilot and his pet poodle, the only thing missing was the bottle of wine and French stick bread in a basket!!
Well I really like how these kits goes together, I've now built 6 different ones and all were excellent. They fly very well and teach people how to build a kit plane with confidence and learn neat little tricks which are inployed in the kits. Worth trying them out.So here are the pictures of my build hope you like them.You have to supply your wheels for this kit. I also put on a tail wheel( from a PZ plane) for ground handling
At the time I finished it I delivered it to him and he was thrilled to see it done so nicely and then turned around and said it was mine to havewas I taken back ...yep!! I now am getting the throws and expos all set up and waiting for a good no wind morning or evening to take her up for her first flight.

As for the micro S-Pou just take your time on building the wings make sure they are NOT warped use a good flat surface to build on..Also pay attention to the pitch limitation lines do not go beyond either end. Keep it light use glue sparingly and also when covering the wing use the Areolite covering and all you do is the top make sure when you cut out the cover to size that you place the wing on a flat surface. It loves flying a slow putting speeds.

When designing the S-pou, both sizes, I applied the same aerodynamic principals used on the full size Fleas being built today, i.e., proper wing separation, Proper CG, and travel limits on the front wing. The smaller S-pou exhibited the same terminal dive as the original until we sorted out the travel limits. Now it, and it's big brother, are pussycats to fly with no bad habits.
