Cessna 185 Free Plans
Here is a design I want to share. It's a really easy build using Depron and 2" Blue Foam. It also uses the popular Blue Wonder motor. I wanted something really easy to fly that would look great in the air. The fuse uses 2 laminations of 2" foam and is tapered front and back before the fuse sides are attached.
I've included several pics here and will post a video of it flying if the weather up here in Michigan will ever get out of suck mode.
I have been a scratch builder since 1977, and I hope this design will bring a lot of fun to whoever builds it.
CG is 2 1/4" from the leading edge of the wing

It's a real joy to fly.
I'm hoping someone can help get tiled images from these plans. I'm not sure how to do that.

Sweet build. Nice use of monobloc.
Is 11.9 oz your AUW? Just airframe?
How are the LG holding up? In particular, how well does gluing the wire to foam work?

11.9 all up without batt. 4 coats of brush on paint (too much i know) and decal pack
landing gear is really strong, this worked much better then expected.
