Convair CV440 shockflyer style

After having success with my Cessna Citation I decided to build a Convair CV-440 Metropolitan . Wing and fuselage are made with 6mm depron. Horizontal stabilizer is 3mm depron.
Wingspan: 80cm (32in)
Motor: 2 x EDP050
Prop: GWS 3x2
Batt: 2S1P 700mAh
Controls: Elevator, rudder
Weight: 152gr

As you can see I just enlarged a 3D-view from a book. Very simple and looks good. Made today the maiden flight. Flies and looks great and is very easy to handle. 2/3 power is enough for cruising around the field.

Greetings fom Switzerland
