1/2A Sources

I felt that, as 1/2A modelers, we should have a general thread for 1/2A websites containing materials, build logs, and/or threads (other than here on RCG) that may be of interest or use.

Here are a few to get things started:
http://www.aerial-locomotion.com/
http://my.pclink.com/~dfritzke/index.html
http://earlyrcmodels.com/id15.html
http://www.donatelli.net/default.asp
http://www.mh-aerotools.de/airfoils/cox_frameset.htm

Let's see what else we can get!!

That's some really cool sites.. I have been flying the 40's 25's 10's but now I have been gearing up to start with the Cox .09 .049 but I am not sure if I will drop to .20 &.10 may hand are just to large to comfortably tune the engine but some day I may try one anyway.. However I am really interested in seeing a 1/2 A site but am wondering why you cant do it here??

I am doing the same. I find myself being very sucked in by these little guys. I am just fascinated by them!

1/2A Stik

Does anyone happen to know how to get the 1/2A Stik or at least the plans. This plane can be seen on the fourth link on Post #1.

This plane(Das Not Ugly) is almost as simple as the LittleStick/LAStik/Wee Stick/Micro Stick. What I like is that it's a little larger, it still has ailerons, and the required engine can be found from a website other than Ebay.

Thank you very much, eipper!

Would anyone else like these plans? I will try my best to get them to you.
