Almost done with mine, a few things that aren't great like wing flex around spar but overall a nice plane. Hope to maiden later today if my local hs has the right prop adapter.

Hello everybody,

I just bought one, construction is really light and nice (appart from the riging and fittings which are way too heavy) finishing is nice, also i don't like the paint scheme (strange aluminium drawing in front of the tail (goes off once protection film is peeled off using acetone)

the drawings on the elevator and the Seat logo should have been avoided to me.
Now for aerodynamics:

I fear the little wing, so i'll build a new wing covered with oracover (colour code 057) and silver, each half wing will be increased by 9 centimeters.

I'll build a new stab and a new rudder, the rounded trailling edges are not good for aerodynamics

I will also change the wing spar holder in the fuse which is not tight enough and doesn t hold the wings as it should, i bought a 5mm int / 6mm ext aluminium tube for that purpose.
The wing profile will be 4 mm thicker than original one at wing root

Hello MustangAce17, what do you mean by "some bad caracteristics"? about the flight you mean?

New wings are nearly finished, thanks to my son who is helping me. Each wing should weight around 45 grams without covering
