I agree with what others have said about the ease of building this plane with the plans given. It very easy to draw straight lines of the given dimensions then cut them out and glue everthing together. Once that is all done and the electronics are in one will have one of the nicest flying planes to park in your hangar
Thanks again for the plans.

I asked whether has anyone created tiled plans, not because I cannot build this model by looking at the build log. I was trying to create some tiled plans if none has done it so far. Having tiled plans, gives you the flexibility of rescaling the model for various power setups with ease. I personally believe having tiled plans are always better than not having them at all.

a valid point regarding having a CAD file for the "wot-next" it would allow scaling the model size up/down to suit a particular power set-up. though it will fly with quite a wide range of motors as it is.

if anyone wants to draw it up please feel free to do so!

Okay, here are some Sketchup drawings i've done, should be self explanatory.
If someone could 'Pdf' them that would be grand.

If you'll export those to DXF, I'll make AutoCAD and PDF versions.

I just completed a 24.8" inch model. Power system is HK 10 gram motor (1811-2000). I am planning to test fly this tomorrow morning with our regular flying session. Will post some videos and photos tomorrow.

Sounds good. I've had that in mind for a while. What thickness of foam, and how much does it weigh all up? Looking forward to the video and fight report.

I test flew it in the morning. It flew from the first launch itself. I will post a video of it here soon.

The AUW came to 115 grams with a 450mah 2S Lipo. Plenty of power. Great model.

I did a small mod though. I used a mono block for the motor.
