Hi Bare- the plans aren't available anymore if I remember.The engine is a Cox 049 and the Spirit flies on 35' spectra lines. It is built extremely lightweight and has all the ribs in scale location. The wing tips were hollowed out. Tailfeathers are hollow core. Engine bolts to firewall are nylon. The fuse was built with 1/16 sticks, etc. Covering Monokote- keeps it from getting oil soaked so worth the weight penalty. It's very fragile but... it flies!!!!

No worries.. Found a set of 'Spirit' 34" span plans.
Not the Flyline ones but quite possibly the 'father' of those :-)

ARUP,

I see that you have the multi-strut landing gear on the Spirit. How have these worked for you? Could you explain which parts are actually functional? For instance, does the lowest strut that reaches from the wheel to the bottom of the fuselage actually hinge?

I am building an r/c Fairchild 24 and have come to understand that small-scale gear do not act quite the same way as the full-scale gear. Of course, the original design transfers the load to many different locations that our models simply can't replicate due to the level of complexity. Might you be able to share some of the materials that you used. I'm just in the stages of planning...

Thank you very much,
KP

Hi KP- sorry for delay in posting answer to ??? I used music wire clad in balsa for everything. None of it is functional other than to retain the wheels and keep the wing from folding! They are finished with butyrate.

Some of them have homes on planes .The bee's usually end up on profile models for kids in the neighbor hood. Thanks to Bernie at Cox Int. I have been able to rebuild some of the tired motors for the profile models and keep my contest motors in good running order.
