.049 Sure Start powered delta

Hello all,

I built a small delta (approx. 18") a while ago. It has a foam wing and is powered by a Cox .049 Sure Start engine. I am sure an electric conversion would be easy with a Shock Flyer motor or a fast inrunner. It is very quick and easy to build. It is quite fast (but easy to fly) with a Sure Start but I think it could a lot faster with a TeeDee or a fast revving inrunner. It also has a detachable fin so is very easy to transport.
I am wondering if anybody is interested and would want foam wings (around 10 + post) and plans to build it from.
thanks
Alex

The plan

I finally got the plan on here! It isn't the best and it is only 1/2 scale!. However you can still easily build the plane off of it! The Centre of Gravity should be 7 1/2" back from the nose. It also has the wing building instructions now which you will require as it has some dimensions on it.
