love to see that thing in the air. Great shape and odd enough to make nearly anyone "double-take"

Keep it up!

That should be a good one as the RBC kits seem well designed....

but I wanted a speed 400 size Ho 9 I could fly anywhere so, no choice but to design my own....

Phil,

Will you be using a linear twist, or the Horton bell? Doing it like the Horton's did will be a little more work with the bent spars and leading edges.

Looks great so far. What's the power going to be? I know you said speed 400 size, but are you actually using those motors?
