Looks like it's coming along nicely. Is that a current magazine article or older?

Gerald,
Its an old plan , from August 1989 Radio Modeler .
It was designed to suit the "New Irvine Mills .75" so it should perform well with the 400 conversion .

Thanks,

You can still find the 35" span "Quaker Oat" plan by Ben Buckle. See this page :

thier was a guy back east who sold old time kits, and for the life of me I cant remember who it was, anyway he made the full size and 3/4, I picked up the 3/4 and used a speed 400, flew pretty good and because it was a stick model it was light enuff to go electric. anyway I went nuts and scratch built my 2nd full size version,this model will fly hands off when trimmed, on a summer evening thiers nothin better , especially with a nice quite OS 40 F/S in front, just lay the tranny on the table put in a little left trim and kick back, itll fly it self.............

Hi All, as a long time lurker, mention of the Quiver finally prompted me to sign up.
My Quiver, built from the same RCM&E plan is a great flyer.
Started life with a Mark I ED Bee - fast and aerobatic, but rather a short tank run.
Then moved on to Irvine Mills 75 - much slower and very relaxing, but missed the aerobatics.
Latest is a Frog 100 MkIII red head - fast and aerobatic, but now runs about 5 minutes on a little tinplate tank.
The Quiver can be highly recommended for all styles fast and slow. In it's latest form it even does pretty good ruddr only rolls.

Hi Simon,
The covering is Polyspan, dope and estapol.
Despite my highly visible switch position the Quiver is still a veteran of one good long free flight (I thought the engine would never cut). Very lucky to be returned by an earlier park spectator who spotted it on his way home.
Now sports a large name and phone number under the wing.

Flew another this afternoon, an enlarged Bugaboo with an ED Comp Special.
Fly's nicely but power is marginal in a breeze. I'm going to try an ED Hunter next (same bolt holes) but the power jump might be a bit startling.
