Don't know how I forgot to add this one.
An old Airacobra kit no longer produced.

Here are a few pics of my Guillows B-17 I converted in 2004. It uses IPS motors and 5x4.3 props.
It flew ok at 20oz but could use a bit more pitch speed.
I have since made a set of vintage1 three blade props for it. The higher pitch props required a gear ratio change. I bought the gears and it's waiting for it's turn in the maintenance hangar.

This post reminded me that I haven't posted my F-16 thread. I did a search and couldn't find it, so here it is:

Kit Number - 1403
Kit Name - F-16 Fighting Falcon

Not enlarged. Wingspan increased 1" per side and 3/8" chord increase. Airfoil thickness increased 1/16".
Weighs around 6 oz.

This thing flies great. I wish someone else would give a try to making an edf at the original kit size!

Here's a link to a video:

Kit 2660

10 gram motor, 6 amp SC and elevons mixed with a whale tail. Fly's nicely but is getting a slightly larger motor, 14 grams and 12 amp SC for better climb out.

Thread link for details...

18" Albatros D5a

This was built with the AeroWerkes laser cut parts for the 18" span Guillows D5a. The short kit is $18.

The components work well, the motor plenty powerful. I'll try the Neuport 28 next.
