Just cant help it ..more is my latest build. A 52 in 1370 mm Fournier RF 4.
Built off a RCM&E free plan from a few years ago that I had stashed away.
Original was all balsa and a cox dragon fly for power.
I have used depron,white and blue foam,news print and tissue paper, a bit of balsa and carbon rod.
Wings are hot wired white foam covered in news print with thinned down PVA glue. Then a squirt of white paint.
Cowl is blue foam covered in tissue with thinned glue. A squirt of white paint.
Fuse is depron with a few balsa formers as is the tail end depron with carbon spar and balsa tail post.
Power is a blue wonder 1700 kva,18 amp ESC,3 x HXT 900 servos,1300 3s lipo battery.
This has been built in between working on the PA 140. Very handy to have a small model on the go while glue etc is drying on the big builds.
