Model Airplane Building Clinic #2 ~ Building From Plans >> Begins TBD. All Welcome

On the heels of Model Airplane Building Clinic #1, for my next clinic would like to focus on building a model airplane from plans.

I have looked for a found an easy build that would also be fun to fly. As a matter of fact, this little beauty looks like it would be a great plane for a number of club members to build and fly.

It is called the E-Quickie 200. The plans are in revision right now and when they are ready for prime time, I will post the link.

Looking forward to this clinic/project and I am posting this pretty far in advance to folks can clear their tables and calendars for what looks to be an exciting build.

Plans for the E-Quickie 200 can be ordered from here: http://www.theolddog.net/Plans_and_Wings.html

The pre-cut foam wings can be ordered from here: http://www.mwcores.com/servlet/Detail?no=220 Right now there is a special going on. The first set cost $8, the next one $4. I'm not sure what the third one will cost. I'll ask when I order mine tomorrow.

Awesome! Thanks for joining in the fun. I have been told that the plans are being updated and will let you know when they are ready.


I will also start adding the names in post #1 when I get the chance.

Someone asked "how do you get people back to building?" I think the answer is "make it funner."

BTW is anyone a member of RCU? I wonder if we should post something over there as well? Is there a large audience for builders over there? Would it be worth the effort to support a thread over there also?

Thanks,

Frank
