Model Airplane Building Clinic #2 ~ Building From Plans >>Murocflyer<<


This thread will detail building an airplane called the E-Quickie 200 from a set of plans.

This build clinic is part 2 of a series of build clinics tailored for the beginner to expert builder of model airplanes. The original thread can be found here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1733597

I ordered the plans from: http://www.theolddog.net/Q-200_plans_Pg_1.html They arrived in only 3 days. The plans have a "shopping list" of everything that you need to complete the build. Very nice touch. Now I just need to check to see what I don't have and buy the remaining items before 29 Nov.

The wing cores I am using can be ordered from here: http://www.mwcores.com/servlet/Detail?no=220

Attached below is a PDF of the build instructions, but by looking at the plans, I'm not sure they will be needed, but good to have if you get stuck.

Speaking of getting stuck, there is also a build video of the E-Quickie 200 by the designer of the airplane which can be found here: http://www.theolddog.net/Q200_Build_Video.html

If you have any questions, please ask, and I hope you enjoy the build along with me. This should be fun.

Frank
