Something you might want to try is a delta, there's a lot of ideas and designs here in these threads, pushers, pullers and prop in a slot. Personally I prefer a tractor/puller because of it's aerobatic capabilities. You can take any platform and put the motor where you prefer, just keep the CG the same.

The beauty of a modified delta is that it has lots of wing area, can be build light and is the best design for windy days.

Here's a real good platform to start with ................ https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...h-simple-plans

Excellent, Gil. Glad you got something to fly before giving up on this design.

I never asked what the AUW of the 24" version was. I assumed that after your experiments with the small motors BorC gave you, you'd have a good feel for the right weight at that size. Out of interest, what was the RTF weight?

Suggest you also calculate the Cube Wing Loading (google the formula) for both your small and large planes. This will give you good data points for what CWL you are comfortable flying at this stage of your RC journey. CWL is a dimensionless numbers that allows you to compare the wing loading of planes of different sizes and is a good predictor of how a plane will fly. Generally as a beginner you want something below 5 or 6. My guess is your EZfly was even lower. Much above 8 starts to need to fly faster than most beginners or intermediates can manage.
