First Balsa Model in over 25 Years

I just finished the maiden flight of the first balsa model I have built in over 25 years. It is a Herr Engineering Mini Sport with ailerons and a light weight brushless system. It did OK, just needs a few adjustments.

This was a test build to get my skills back for something better.

A man with too many toys
I have built a few Herr models over the years and they have always been a pleasure to build. For those who don’t know you cat them from SIG (

Welcome back!!! I will bet you will have more fun with that Mini Sport than anything you will build in the next few years, providing it lives that long

Hello, could you tell me what brushless power system you used and what your thoughts were? Too little / too much power, other suggestions?

I came back to the hobby 7 years ago after a 20 year hiatus.
And I am officially hooked.

Here's to hoping you get hooked too.
Nice build!
