Sub Mini - Super 60 scaled down to 32in span

This will be my first balsa build for... er... 32 years. It's an old David Boddington plan that was uploaded to the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread at: Looks like it was originally published in January 1965 in RCM&E.

The original was petrol powered with (I think) just single channel control on the rudder. I'll be doing electric power and 3 channels. I've already had to butcher the plan to add elevator control. There will be little integrity here.

I may be some time...

Hi WMD, did the Sub Mini get finished? I'm toying with the idea of building an electric one as well and was wondering what motor and battery you ended up using.

Hi r,

Sorry, my apologies, I missed answering this, somehow. Ah, no, the Sub Mini still sits in much the same state, sadly. I got a little sidetracked with everything else.

The nearest example I have to answer your question is the Frog Redwing at 27in, the build thread with pics and details of the powertrain is here:
