Landings are consistently easy.

Gotta tell ya that my wife really likes that little Jenny. Nice little plane. We used to have a static display model about that size and she liked it a lot. Had to pass it along because it was taking up room here and being a non-flyer, it was low on the list to keep.

At some point I'll probably get the 38" version like yours but in the standard yellow color.

Definitely enough power... but not too much.
It's a nice little plane that's distinctive.

From quite a while ago, (actually I did build two, though not at the same time), the Avro 504k.

For transport, both wing halves each side could be removed full rigged, the split was either side of the upper center section and the fuselage sides.

Balsa build with Solarfilm covering. I think it was a Radio Modeler plan -
Span - 48"
Motor - Turnigy 2213-22
Prop - GWS HD 10x6
Cells - 1500 or 1700mAh Lipo 3s (11.1v)
Weight - 2lb - 2oz with battery

I know that you are aware of this but your pilot needs to be a little bigger, hard to find the right size, just a commit not nit picking. The main reason I am posting is, your covering is just unbelievable how the heck did you do that? It looks better then my paint jobs.

He's the guy in my FMS Cessna. Not sure that ball cap would stay on in an open cockpit;-)

Part of being an excellent pilot is the uncanny ability to keep your hat on.... haven't you seen any movies???

Do you recognize the little Waco graphic that you sent me? Thanks again. This is one of my absolute favorite planes as it flies so well and is customized as a real one of a kind.
