Someone today said that it had an old style look with all the latest gear.

On the motors, batteries, etc. just use what you have. Anything close should work.
Looks like 100 to 150 watts should work, eh?

Here is how I built the earth magnet into the wood.
Spring shock absorbers for those hard landings.
Steerable tailwheel.

KFm4 Twist

Hi Dalton,

I got putzzin around in Cad last night and tossed out a couple quick test runs of plans. I tossed in the option of the KFm4 50% parts that can be laminated on. Lots of people like the KFm steps, it can reduce some of the carbon needs in some cases. Wing saddle will need to be cut per thickness of building material, cuts on fuse sides are just for reference.

For the speed junkies I also made a 32.5 inch version for fun.
Please measure twice and cut once.

Cheers
Ron

Yep! That sounds about right. You should be able to train on ailerons on this model real easy.

O.K. Walt. I'll try. Here is some more....
If you have questions, please ask.

I didn't put the spring in mine but I plan to on the next one. The tail wheel I used was just something I found in my junk.

Be sure you make it long enough to keep your elevator from hitting the ground. I think I'll make my elevator straight, like Mitchell did on his, the next time.
