Airborn 1600 first contest

Attached are a couple of pictures of me holding my 1600 that gives a perspective of its size.
Also at the first contest on the first flight the performance of this model was
The flight was 1:07 hours on just 10 minutes of motor run, thermaling was
of the best I have seen and it's ability to work and center into the thermals
was remarkable.
The setup on the models was SAM legal at 110 oz. with a Thunder Power
1800mah 3S lipo pack and a NEU 1107/6D with 6.7:1 P32 gearbox.
Using my Aurora 2.4ghz radio system and a 2000mah 5 cell Eneloop receiver/servo battery pack.
I am now starting to build 3 more of these models for fellow SAM flyers
during the next few months.

You can get the original plans from Jim O'Reilly.
I modified it a bit for electric. His show a gas motor but
if you look at my blog you can see the changes.
The plans are huge and two pages, expensive to copy and ship.
Here is Jim O'Reilly's web page:

Here is the model on his web site that you are looking for:
OTG22M Lanzo’s “Airborn 1600.” $45

Sorry that I couldn't just have some copies for you.
