Hi Guys, i just start cutting some balsa for my new plane. will be a nice biplane with an old Enya 09 III.
Seems to be interesting as no one complete can be found on RC groups or RC universe....

Interesting choice Rodrigo, I'm sure you will make a great job of it as usual. I love biplanes!

The plan shows an 32oz weight, and seen to be excessive, having around 400 sq inches, what is a good weight?

At 32oz. loading would be 11.5oz/sqft-not too bad.Modern servos and r/x should shave some weight,remember the thing was designed when you were lucky to get a servo that weighed less than 2oz.

I flew a 350 sq in wing at 30 oz with a Cox .09 (1.5) and another model of 350 sq in at 36 oz with an MVVs 2 cc (.12). Both flew well, but the 30 oz model was a floater by comparison. Keep yours under 30 oz for the less powerful Enya .09.
