These are downloaded plans....and I must be building a boat instead of a plane....I still need my batt and receiver, but as she sits....34gms!!!...3” cord and 16” wingspan.....kinda more than I wanted....but she balances now......the batt May offset the control rods....
I did use the magnet method to fasten the wing, so batt changes will be easy Smiley
If I was to do it over= esaki tissue, no sheet on the cowling, lighter wood for the body parts...the wings/l.g. I would do the same...very strong, no twists....

Okay, you’ve got my attention, kit, plans? I’ve been wanting to build one. I have several “Bricks” and everything to run one, just need an excuse to build one.

Been looking at the plans...finally stoped on others to put this together....using the lightest techniques I can do.. geared motor....rudder, elevator on the micro 1.5gm servos, and a 130mah battery, and super small flysky rc.....the wings are still being put together using just caps....anyways, she weighs in at 21.6gm...so add a batt(4gm) receiver(1.5gm) the wings/wheels(8gm)=35.1gm Wink
not bad, maybe able with that weight to fly in a calm out doors!!!
