Nice ...
The sturdy Twinjet Elapor or breakablle styro?

The whole model is made from white and blue Elapor. Rudder, elevator and motor control. Permax 400 pusher. Clever details, like the snap-lock system from the Micro-Jet for the canopy. More pictures over the weekend.

The rudder is rather small - helps to avoid "overcontrol" by inexperienced pilots.
