Marabu II


Modification 1

Separate connections of the two struts instead of one.
Was easier to build and the struts together are stronger.

At the bottom of the tail I made an opening for easyer access to the connection of the rudder.

Hi! Nice to see another Marabu ready for the flight!
You did a great job! It is almost as mine, but much prettier!

Modifications on the wing struts and opening at the bottom fuselage are really an very clever upgrade and came very handy at assembly of the model!

I wish you better weather soon and happy maiden!

Regards!

You should take some free time to fly Marabu!
It is so easy and fun!
