Plane #5. A friend is flying in a cessna 150, for his birthday I decided to give him a plane designed and built by me, in the image and likeness of his, but much smaller (scale 1:10).
Study the plans of the cessna150 of scigs30 and decided to make a new version with flaps, moving front wheel.
Time spent on the project: Designing 20 hours and building 50 hours.
Flies well ideal for semi-advanced...Continue Reading

Should have a very rabid aerobatics for expert...Continue Reading
