Notice I edited my pervious post........... I meant 'Can be'. It was past my bed time.

I build considering what equipment I have. Most all of mine is now small to smaller. Dumped everything bigger than 2808 and up, models, motors, ESC's, lipos and a huge collection of props. It was all gathering dust. Gone back to my 1/2A roots......size wise. Smaller slopers too. Now I fly legally anywhere under the radar of Transport Canada's present laws and new proposed ones.

Besides, you know my old credo................ 'Fly SMALL, have a Ball'

Gold, what sort of smaller slopers do you fly? I don't think I have anything smaller than my HalfBad currently

The first DV8 airfoil was just some Depron sanded to an airfoil using the TLAR method, wrapped with thin underlay and packing taped. Later we cut EPP cores using an unknown airfoil designed by a local.

These lil' babies flew up a storm in big wind. The hook on the aft end was to retrieve them out of the black berries and bushes.

May have to pick up some MPF and give it a try. There's a small slope just SW of LAX (work) that is "lunchable"

The battery is made up from taking apart a 180 mAh rechargeable 9V and using four cells.
