Yeah, it's a full size plan. 36"x23". I don't have the plans tiled. Sorry, bro.
Take it to a local office supply store that does large prints. That's what I do to print large plans.

Anyone up to a full fuse Yak? I've decided to try it out, and I have the plans almost done for the first prototype. I am getting some depron tomorrow to build it. I'll have pics over the weekend.

Nice! Now you just need white or silver paint to do the canopy. Make sure to let me know how she flies.
How was the plan? Did the parts fit fine?

It's done! It's just a prototype, so I didn't apply myself to the paint job.

One more.

Note that I didn't use a firewall, but just a cross section - like in a shocky. I have 2 reasons for that. First, it's a lot stronger than just a firewall in case of a nose crash. Second, I'll have more air going inside the fuse that will slow down the plane (also, more air for the eletronics and pack).

A bit late Malves but, the plans worked fine and it all fitted together o.k., i weighed it today and it was 139g without the batt, but its sooo windy in the u.k. so it still hasnt flown.

It looks like i need a full fuse now, any tips on building one please?

I have the plans for the prototype in the pics. It'll need a few adjustments, but if you wanna give it a try PM me your email address and I'll send the plans to you.
