Hi Nadine,

The dimensions:
Wing - 8.5" WS x 4.5" Chord.
Fuse - 9" length x 1/8" height x 1/16" width balsa tapered to 1/16" at the tail. 1/32" balsa for the wing rib and tail frames.
Carbon rods - 0.5mm for the wing, 0.3mm for the horiz. and vert. stabs.
Adhesives - 3M Super 77 spray on contact cement (just a mist) for covering, tiny dabs of medium CA for frame, UHU por for attaching actuators and Recv.
Wing incidence: ~5 degrees (best for slow flight and rudder/throttle control only).

Rob

No.. Thank You! Your receivers open up a new micro frontier for those of us that are pushing the sub 3gram 3-ch. envelope, and everything in-between .

OH NO! Semi-disaster... Word of warning - Never fly LRF's in the proximity of a lit fireplace!

Getting my evening flights in before bedtime and the battery dies just as it descends toward the fireplace .

Good news - It's just the wing and rudder - easy to replace... whew...
