Hi everyone!

In the later part of 2009 I was really excited about several DR.1s I had built and wanted a smaller more scale bird to fly at the local park. My solution was an easily built design that used readily available (and cheap) Guillows plastics but had the durability and flexibility of foam.

Several models later and beta plans uploaded I have yet to see more than one attempt at this design. Larryross kindly took my hand drawn plans and worked them in cad to PDF format. I need people to test the plans and help me make revisions! This model is made with 3mm depron as the main build material.

She flys great on rudder and elevator alone even without dihedral, but I am sure people will want ailerons.
