Here's a bump for a very tempting plane... very nice. I must resist.. if I get another kit, my wife will have me committed... and I'm saving for completion of kits I already have.. why must you tempt me so?... Good luck with your sale.

Elder Bipe

This is a bad cell phone shot of my Elder Bipe. I've flown in for over fifteen years. It has an OS-90FS for pretty majestic flight. Not over powered at all. Fly's nice, lands on a dime. And looks very antique. Beardiedrg is correct, "Very cool plane for a builder."

Mark,
I could not do an an attachment to an RCG message and I hope that this information will help the seller with his sale as well.
The first sheets are an RC Reports review done in February of 1992.
The slimmer scan is from RCM circa the same time. This sheet shows you the correct placement of the CG. "DO NOT USE THE CG LOCATION ON THE PLANS SHEET!"
Hope this is some help.
