Wow and I thought I was having flash backs or something. Looks like a fun plane.

This is weird... im working on building a balsa/renolds wrap stringless at this very moment, waiting for the glue to dry (elmers) when i noticed your post. Im going to use 370 mah nimh packs, IPS power, 10/4.7 prop, and a coulple hs50 servos, once o get em in. What is your wingspan, or should i say kitespan? How much does the bare airframe weigh? Pics soon of mine, if yould like.

Heres a pic, these planes fly well enough without a pilot, hope they fly as well with one:

Hey I bet even I could build one!

Larry G can I bother you for more dimensions measurements?!
Wingspan 24
motorstick 25 inches
CG right in front of wing cut out...?

I like baseball, so using a baseball diamond:
Home base is the piece the motor comes out of (it even looks like home base).
First Base is one wing tip
Second base is the stabilizer, elevator, rudder.
Third base is the other wing tip.
Pitcher's mound is the cut out in the middle...

I can pretty much figure everything out from knowing that wing tip to wing tip is 24 inches long. I just need to know how far apart the two triangles are from each other (Pitcher's mound side to side?) If you tell me the diminutions for the Pitcher's mound I can get second base, home base, and make sure I have 1 and 3rd base correctly...

Also is CG just in front of the pitcher's mound towards home base?
