About the only thing left to buy were sticks and hardware.

Hi Jim

Thanks for the manual.

Do you have a website for lazor works? Is it laserworks? I saw where they sell equipment, but it didn't say anything about making balsa kits.

Thanks.

George

Jim.. you said that you sent them the plan, do you know if they would accept the pdf file instead of the paper copy?

Sorry to ask so many questions, but man am I excited. I don't have all of the tools needed (band saw, etc) to kit my own but their service will be quite handy.

Thanks,
Mark

Bee instruction book

I had decided trying to build a Bee and glad I found this thread with plans before starting. I saw the posts that there is an instruction booklet out there. I have heard that Clancy had done a pretty good job including time saving tips in his instruction books. Would appreciate it much if someone could email the file to nwwilliams2000@sbcglobal.net.

Thanks in advance... NW

No, they won't take a PDF file. I took my PDF file to Kinko's and the made nice copy's and they also had the mailing tubes, all for around $20.00

The issue may also become one of converting a paper copy or .pdf to a cut-ready file. You may really need a CAD file of the plans. This will depend on the cutting service provider.

If you knew someone who worked in the field of engineering, you could have them print the plans for you. My Dad's friend did that for me.

I was wondering if someone would send me an instruction manual . Interested in doing an electric one. What do you think would be better 40 or 48 "?
I guess i could build both wings.

Can't belive this,
I remembered that i had bought a bee kit years ago. I thought it got lost in a couple of moves. What i found was even better the original kit , and a 72 inch big bee kit.
Has anyone built the big one with electric?

I have a 48 inch Lazy Bee and I love the way it hovers in light winds with half throttle. The 40 inch would be better if you want to fly in more wind or do more aerobatics. I'd be glad to send the manual, but I think I need your email.
The manual is well worth reading, because it contains a lot of Andy Clancy's hints and tips.

I had one of these and they are good slow fliers but you might think about doubling up on the wheels i had to.
We have a grass runway and the bee kept wanting to wing over on take off and landing till i put a extra set of wheels on it and it helped.
I lost mine do to pilot error i was flying it inverted and nosed it down through the top of a tree not pretty how dumb was i this is not a 3D plane but live and learn.

I found the manual , the one manual covers all of them. Has anyone flown the 72" one?
I think i'll build the 48 " one and maybe build a 40 " wing also while i'm at it .
Have any of you built the speedy bee? If so how did it fly?
The one thing i can't find is a set of plans for the floats, if anyone has them my email is, morimoore@comcast.net

Here you go guys!
Took awhile but someone sent these to me. Now we all can enjoy them.
One question, i took the file to staples but they can only print so big. I told them i need the plans 100%. I really don't want to tile them. Do you guys know anywhere else i can get them done?

Thanks for the plans for the floats.

These are great. I'm sure they will work for winter too.

Thanks again.
