Bob...should be able to trim her for tight circles!  I'm sure she'll be a real flyer!

Tom, it will be the blue and yellow with US insignia. I want to fly this airplane so it may not live long with the small area here.

Looks good. Are you going with the plan's single 1/8 x 1/16 wing spar? To me it looks like it should be rotated 90 degrees, so that it gives more resistance to flex, but I think that I would rather do 2 x 1/16" square spars top and bottom to replace it.

Ian, I thought about this spar and went with one as per plan, but I used some rock hard balsa and it looks good.

I started this a few days ago and really love the ugliness of this Embryo.

This is the plan organized into a single sheet. It didn't take very long. I have just been away most of the day.

FYI= FAC rules

VIII-3.0 EMBRYO ENDURANCE Competition for non-scale FAC endurance type sport models.
A. Design considerations:
1. Wing Area (WA) is measured off of the flat plan.
2. MONOPLANES not to exceed 50 sq. inches WA.
3. BIPLANES not to exceed 70 sq. inches of WA, with 45 sq. inches WA maximum for the larger wing.
4. Stab area not to exceed 50% of the WA.
5. Any part of any wing that sits on top of or passes through the fuselage is considered wing area.
6. Fuselage volume to enclose a space 1.25 x 1.50 x 3.00 inches or larger.
7. The wing and tail must be built up and covered on both sides (“double covered”) with Japanese tissue or equivalent.
B. Wing span: Not applicable, but refer to wing area rules above.
C. Landing gear:
1. Landing gear legs must be conventional configuration.
Example: two wheels on a single landing gear leg are prohibited.
2. Wheels must be 3/4 inches or larger in diameter, and must rotate freely on their axles.
D. Launch technique: Model must R.O.G. UNASSISTED from a three-point rest off a card table or other suitable “runway.”
No “bouncing,” pushing, etc. during ROG!
E. Bonus points: Cumulative; added just once to the total flight points. Maximum bonus points—9
POINTS CRITERIA
1 3-dimensional exhaust pipes
3 3-dimensional wheel pants
5 Open cockpit with windscreen and headrest—OR
5 Full bubble canopy containing head rest and (at a minimum) a pilot's head silhouette—OR
5 Raised cabin with no less than a 30-degree windshield slant, measured from the thrust line.
F. Flight scoring: Total of three flights
G. Official flight: As per standard FAC Primary

The plan as posted has a fuselage width of 1.30 inches, and the square part of the fuselage depth is 1.56 inches. the wheels are 1.1 inches wide. Rules say 3/4" wheels, and fuselage has to enclose 1.25 x 1.5 x 3 inches and wing area max of 50 sq in.
so, it looks like the plan might be slightly enlarged over the rule dimensions, but not by much. The pdf plan as posted has a wingspan at 24.2 inches and a fuselage length of 18.3 inches. You could reduce it to 95% and it would still meet the rules.

I found several Embryo designs that I want to build, but this
TRACTABLE TRAINER
plan is tiled and I'm not sure of the dimensions. Could some one tell me what the wing span and fuselage length should be? I want to build this ugly/beautiful airplane.
