Just got a kit back from LazorWorks. Only thing i can say is wow!
He cuts any thing that is curved, you have to supply the sheets and sticks.
He even gives you the templates for the wing , rudder and elevator tips.
I have 2 fuselages done for the standard Bee. next a 40" and 48" wing.
I sent LazorWorks my Big Bee plans so he can cut me a kit. Now he can cut anyone a Big Bee kit.
He has the Lazy Bee , Stagger Bee, Speede Bee ,Yard Bee and Lady Bee.
There in different categories just have to look around.

I sent them the plans for the 48" Bee, and they really did a nice job on the parts kit.

Once someone sends them plans , they have them on file for the next guy.
I would say they have plans on file for just about all of the Bees.
There not all in one spot on his website you have to look around in different areas to find them. I just sent the Big Bee plans in , 72 inch wing. .It wont show on his site but he has it

Nice Bees ?

Hi there,

i got a Lazy Bee since a while, which i'm going to rebuild.

This little plane came with a couple of planes i bought from a fellow modeller.
I just need to do some repairs on it and i have to recover the fuselage.

Now, i do own a (brandnew) OS .10 engine, i assume this wil be strong enough for a Lazy Bee ?

I wonder if there are some of you who've build the Bee with floats. any pictures ?

Happy flying form the Netherlands

Grtz,
Menno

The engine size you plan on using will depend on the weight of the plane itself.

When I built my bee, I took some measures to really strengthen it and some of these measures added a little weight.

From what I've heard, a .10 cc engine on a bee will let it fly, but you more than likely won't be able to do and ROG takeoffs.

I got an OS .15 cc on ebay for a steal price of 35 bucks. Muffler and all, its brand new.

Thats the engine that hauls my plane.

Just my opinion, but I'm sure a .10 cc engine would be okay, but its up to you to do some experimenting.

Hi Dominic,

thx for your quick response.

I don't know what my AUW will be, if it's too heavy i wil use an .15 engine. I think i might have something like that in stock

Can you tell me what the AUW of your Bee is ?

Grtz,
Menno

I would like to thank everyone for all the great information on this thread. I have found more useful information on this one thread than anywhere else. Hope to get mine up and flying by the summer flying season.

Your very welcome.

But be sure to thank Dave Surace from Dave Surace aviation. He is the one that supplied me with the plans in the first place.

Ordered two bee kits from Lazar Works today. A 48" Lazy Bee and a Big Bee kit. Will be a week or two until he can get to them. Thanks mori55 for sending the plans to him. Stopped by Kinko's and printed the plans of the Big Bee. They charged $6.50 a sheet which is not a bad price considering the size of the plans. I am also looking for any information on the Gyro-Bee. I have looked at the one sheet of plans here, but would like to find an assembly manual. Anyone have one? Thanks again for all the great info guys!

I'm sure I've still got the Gyro-Bee instructions hanging around somewhere and since AutoGyros of Arizona are no longer making it I don't mind scanning them and posting here. Might take me a few days to dig 'em out though.

That would be great. Got the plans, but did not know that there were building instructions as well.

Also, would anybody out there happen to have a set of the BEE plans with the 'Wingerons' on the plans. If so, would it be possible to get a scan of mainly that area so I can see how it's done, or if at all possible a scan of the plan in whole. Thank you.
