I think these plans are from the 40’s...and there’s no reference to adding 5* down thrust to the motor......but I probably will...
But WHY do we do that?
Why point the motor down?

This is a odd build...the LE and Spar and TE all taper to the tips...I hate balsa dust, so I tried my little Stanley plane....I like it!
Way less dust!!!

I found a video on HPA of a fella flying a 54" rubber powered model inside!!!  I have to admit, I'd be afraid of hitting walls.  But his models was amazing flying in that limited space.

You're fortunate to have that much room to build a 54 incher !  I look forward to this one coming together.

I picked out my wood today at hobby lobby. Looked for lightness, as this was a gasser in the yesteryear. So, building the same sizes, I want light. It will have a 1000kv brushless and 3ch radio. My fring johnathan is setting me up into electric, as I am old school gas, heck, I even have a .29 O & R sparker on the shelf!
Myq qbuilqdiqng board is a flat, unused plant shelf, white pine, so I can use needles very well, and get a great flat build....I hope!
