Thank you Den, I tried hard to capture the scale lines of the original plane, yet make it easy to build.

Great work on this clickety. Built the Rsteel euro before but yours takes it to a new level with its scale lines.

Thanks Sjd,

I notice your thumbnail is of a Harrier - I'm currently building a new design of a Harrier II at the moment, (see my blog for build photos) I'm very nervous about the small wings and anhedral. I need to know how much 'keel weight' I need to bring the vertical CofG down enough to make it fly stable. I hope the battery weight is enough, but I don't know..... could be a quick maiden

I hear ya, thought of trying the harrier a while back but was put off by the high wing loading. Same for the Jaguar, although would love to try it one day, perhaps scale up the wings. Anyway good luck, you got the F23 flying so pretty sure you can tackle the harrier.

Thanks for the vote of confidence - will post results! Its built very lightly, so with a bit of a launch, I'm hoping she'll fly.

Hi Glyn,

Wow small world indeed! My mum lives in North Wheatley! I guess you are torksey way or somewhere like that? I sometimes fly at the playing field there - although its not a great place due to obstacles and weird wind patterns

Anyway, sorry you were having difficulty finding the plans, Here is a link :-

Hey sometimes I wake middle of the night, then my mind starts thinking about solving design problems with my planes....... I can never get back to sleep then!

Hi Kai,

I hadn't seen this bird, looks and flies great! I will be starting to build my 70mm edf version in the coming weeks, and I hope she flies as well as this!



Thanks for sharing
