That's totally great so it consumes a lot of fuel.

Great flying plane, but the cheap covering material shows after a few flights. I see your covering has deteriorated worse than my arf. Horizon Hobby should keep the design, but change the material.

I built the original .60 sized version from a Joe Bridi kit some 40 years ago. But here's some plans for a smaller version, just blow the plans up to whatever you want.

You're welcome Jim. Just build it as light as possible. Use 4-6 lb wood, the lightest, most powerful power plant, LIGHT covering, transparent Monokote is the best. Coverite, prepainted fabric is the worst. etc. I saved a lot of weight going to a tail dragger and not having to add weight to the tail. That kind of thing.

I built the kit, then I destroyed it within the year. So that winter, I built from the plans and I used all the old free-flight strategies for a lighter airplane. Saved a full pound and it became a whole new Kaos Universe. I could do snap rolls, 10 ft off the ground and end up upright just by letting the sticks neutralize.

I flew that one for 6 years. Been thinking of making a 1/2A version. :*)

I may have mentioned this elsewhere, but I am considering scaling this model up to suit a 25 cc petrol engine that I have plans to convert for aero application.
Just one of the conversions I have on my to do list!..............................

I have two (spoiled) granddaughters who asked me to set aside an airplane they could keep after I make my final landing. All were 40s and 60s, too large for souvenirs, so I decided to buld them something smaller.
I have known Joe Bridi for years, and the girls and I used to go visit and tke him to lunch or dinner. They became friends, they shared experiences about his kit business and his flhing, and their university education and future plans. Joe has lost most of his vision and is now in a home too far to visit but hey talk often and assure him he is not forgotten.
Obviously, I had to build them a Bridi design. I got plans for the Kaos 40, had them shrunk to a 30- incher and here is the result. Every piece in the original is in this one, half size, including the landing gear, and a worn out Enya 15 fits perfectly up front. Enjoy

They look like a couple of spoiled but totally charming would be princess's!
It's nice to know that they are sufficiently interested in your interests to make this request!
This is an example of the opposite of the all too common female solipsism that is fashionable in popular culture.
You are lucky to have them!

Is the term: "happy landing" appropriate here?
(Probably not...............................more of an oxymoron actually)
