BluBaby 42" with Clark Y profile - Part 2
Finally, the second part of my blog.
Except for, maybe, covering the wings with packing tape and for placing a few decals, the Baby is finished. And she looks GREAT!
Of course, there are some points that I would do differently now, but that's what it's all about: learning.
Here a few of the most important experiences I made:
If the calculator on http://adamone.rchomepage.com/cg_calc.htm can be trusted, the stall speed should be 19.8 km/h (12.3 mph), provided the max. lift coeff is indeed 1.295, as stated on http://www.worldofkrauss.com/foils/483.
But enough talk, let's move to the pics.

Sweet build mate!
I am completing my first build at the moment, the Pitts Challenger from Tony65x55. Certainly is a learning process, and I am pretty sure I will have to re-make my monoblock too!
I think I will make a BB 33" KFM sport wing one soon.
Looking forward to hearing a flight report

Thanks pal! I'm afraid the flight report won't come for the next 1.5-2 weeks, the weather is horrible. But I'm looking forward to it too!
The pitts Challenger looks great, and the size sounds just right! I was planning to move to a similarly sized warbird next (I *love* WWII planes), but the Challenger could just as well be the next one that I build. Which motor / prop did you choose for your plane? Your blog is (still? ) empty.
