I built and flew a Flat build PT-17 but it had turned out pretty heavy and with the flat wings the performance was not real good... Round #2 is in the works. Found this one on Youtube and with a few build mods I think I can build it a bit better... I hope! Flite Test is going to be releasing their version soon but I am trying to mod the design of this one so it's being built in the Flite Test ways. It will be approx. a 55 inch wingspan and all the equipment I had in the other Flat Build PT-17 should work great in this one. The lower wing is built and I only need to cut out and rig the ailerons on it along with installing the servos. Top wing next which I hope will be a bit easier as it will have no Dihedral like the bottom one does. Stay Tuned...

Update 03/17/20 Top Wing is now completed and the fuselage has been started on. Photos attached
