Hi!

Please use a plan drawings of Guppy(1) for building and assembling Guppy.
Those two files you ask about, was made just as addition to the original plans.

Indeed some parts on the template plans are missing, so use original plan to make them.

2) The spar webs...where they have to be? Also in the triangular wing?
3)what do I need? whichs servos etc...?

Imperial wood size?

Hi,

I have the guppy plan lying in my workshop since a year.
And now it's finally the time to built it!...

I have only one question before building it. since the plans are metric and the balsa available here is imperial. I was wondering what size of wood other have use?

My guess for the best match would be:

1mm = 1/32
it's a little smaller. Is it going to be strong enough for the wing sheeting?

2mm = 1/16
3mm = 1/8
6mm = 1/4

What other have used?

Thanks

Luc
