Estarter!

Put aside the Formosa 2 for a while, it is too large a plane and I made some building mistakes on that one. Ailerons were poorly done. Lousy landing gear every time popped off.

I'm currently working on an Estarter, a high wing aileron trainer.
It's going to be my workhorse training platform for the next few months (I hope). I'm going to practice how to make consistent box circuits and safe landings on this one.

Building it light, no glassing, no heavy landing gear, light batteries, light motor, no excessive glueing. I learnt how to make taped Z hinges that work very well.
