Own design Little "Toth"

The Tiger Moth copy provided me with enough experience I thought to
make my own design (copy and scale down at first) but later I
decided to scale up and change the wings after some weight
wing load calculations.

Made upper and lower wing equal to simplify building and
spare parts. Wing load i about 0.19g/cm2, the motor
may prowide approx 60-80w. More than enought to keep
this bird flying.

Omitted landing gear to save weight. Weight is now at 215g.

It flies like a rocket hoovering no problem BUT it's maybe not
the small slow flyer I was looking for it's rather fast and
powerful.
