Way cool Joel! If it flies like it looks ...

Did you draw up a full plan? I reckon this baby could be popular.

Regards

Excellent workmanship Joel, You have powered it adequately so it should fly as good as it looks. Let us all know how it fares.

In regards to plans. I cheat. I have a laser so the plans are actually cad files. This plane has not yet flown. Here is a photo of my laser.

What a magnificent shop! Not to mention the plane. Are you planning on coming to SEFF with that beautiful plane. We'd love to see it fly.

I noticed the aileron servos are on the bottom of the fuse. What was your reason for designing it like that?

Nice!

Joel:

What a beauty! She looks terrific just standing still, and your workmanship is superb. You must have a lot of friends, with that shop and a laser cutter...

Flight Report!

I just build a cnc router. Do you have any leads for a laser source, thinking I could upgrade my system if the cost is reasonable.
