Rubberdub

Hi Guys, as i will build an 52 mamselle and need to wait for motor, and some stuff(international shipping) i will build a rubberdub, is a nice parasol model, but, donīt know why the designer did not consider a DT!?
The plane looks to have a good performance as a large chord, and camber, so..... maybe for the bad weather the british had??

Some pics soon.

Hi Guys! well, the rubberdub flies beautiful, no adjusted needed, just 1/32 on trailing edge on elevator. build in just a little of righttrust, and some washout on left wing. close and stable flight in right turns.
this season was with my Pacific Ace rubber, 7 strands of 1/8 (14 grams)

Here a video taken with my old phone....

Rubberdub, vuelo libre a liga/rubber free flight (1 min 6 sec)
