Piper PA 8 Skycycle.

A really cool little plane ,so decided to build it .
Using my usual materials of white,blue foam,carbon fiber,depron and news print.
I enlarged a peanut scale pencil drawing up to approx 1/6 scale which gives my around 37 in w/s.
A nice park flyer size.
Power is a turnigy 1050kv motor with a 18 amp esc on a 1300ma 3s battery.
3 x HXt900 servos on 2.4 radio. Aiming for a AUW of round 500 gms.We will see at the end.

1/3 scale Skycycle

Completed 80 inch wingspan PA8 Skycycle. 18 pounds and 43 ounce wingloading, despite all efforts to keep it light. Maiden flight awaits good weather and for my knees to stop shaking
