1.52 oz per sq. ft.

The low wing loading combined with the big under-cambered wing allow it to fly extremely slowly.

Anyway, the PT 19 has a wing loading of 2.5 oz/sq.ft.

It won't be as slow, but it should still fly nicely.

I'll find out tomorrow night.

Stupid windshields too 3 hours to construct.

I did some building over the weekend...building this small is tough for my ham hands. I'm glad I have a laser, because if not, I would have given up by now!

Here are pics of fuselage #3. #1 was never meant to be anything than a quick parts check. Fuselage #2 didn't go so well, it's skewed horribly. But at least I learned the proper sequence to do things. #3 is coming along OK, but there is room for improvement in my micro building skills.

Current weight is about 6g (.2 oz)

[QUOTE=starscream4002;20285726]hmmm... the right one looks familiar... Isn't it the one that Pfinn was experimenting ON
Yes you're right and I received it the day before Christmas I will be flying it at the national Building Museum here in DC next week hopefully. It is such a nice little plane and Phil is an extraordinary person and builder. The other is the Triton which you can find on this site comes from Ken Spencer and is kitted through BSD.

It flew great!

Needed a bit of right and down trim, and then flew it for about 20 minutes.

No repairs nor adjustments are needed.

No video.
