check AMA plans service - they have one for about 64" ws, plan #814 @ $24, from July 1996, I think it was made for electric power.

Yup, that one was originally for speed 400's I think. Brushless CR motors would be cool , thought about doing that one myself...

A friend of mine in Seattle built and flew one. He did an awesome job. Here's a video taken in Chilliwack in 2008, with and unfortunate ending. Apparently it has recently been resurrected.

von,
I have seen that vid. It's a beauty!
I have the 64" plans on order and look them over. i was wanting to go with something in the 80" range, but maybe build a small one first, just to see how it flies.

What was the concensus for the cause of the crash a Chilliwack? Looked like maybe a little too slow/nose up. I worry about a lot of bystander chatter and other air traffic for exotic scale model takeoffs and landings unless pilot has nerves of steel and has done it many times.

The pilot admitted he got too slow. He's a very good pilot and builder. Still, none of us are immune to the odd bad decision!

Agree, none of us. Stage fright even happens at "fun-flies"

Scale Builder
Throwing out a bunch of old mags and ran across this one today Terry. It's yours if you want it although I imagine the plans may come with the construction article.
