The gurney flap seems to have worked. But I must have to replace the batteries in the charger because I didn't get enough power to do much more than a powered glide. I rebalanced the model for a better glide, but it glided too well and got a bit mangled in a chain-link fence. Some repairs in order.

Thanks, I had forgotten about that. I'll give it a shot. Hopefully I'll have some time this afternoon.

Glad to hear she had a successful maiden flight!  If the steaming didn't work have your tried a gurney flap under the right wing?  Just a thought...

She has flown. On the maiden flight, it climbed high (right circles) and glided down beautifully. Then, something happened when I went and got my camera. (which I had somehow left at home) The plane did a climb and stall to the right. The wing has too much wash-out in the right wing. I steamed the wing and pinned it overnight on a flat surface, but by the time I got to the flying field, it had reverted and I got the same results. With a launch with an initial left turn, I got some circles to the right, but it didn't climb. It might not have had enough power in the capacitor. Without an assistant, I don't have time to launch and get the camera out and start the vid.

Yes, Neal, I did build a similar model, the Frog Linnet. I like the twin rudder airplanes, like the Ercoupe.

That's some wild colors Ian. My daughter would have loved that in her younger years (she had me paint a half-size foam Sparky pink and silver when she was about 6).

Thanks Mike. I ran into a problem with painting the tissue. The black spots on the tissue are solvent soluble. I couldn't use dope, so I went back to an acrylic finish using floor polish. The stab twisted  with the extra shrinkage, so I threw it out and used a piece of 1/16 " balsa to replace it. The plane is nose heavy, and I had to add extra weight to the tail anyways. Final all-up weight is 16.9 grams after adding 1.4 grams of weight to the tail.

  I have some closeups of the charging port and the capacitor as well as a side-view of the covered fuselage.

Yes, your frames do look great! I think it's interesting how you did your wing. A built-up c-channel with half ribs and sticks trailing off. Probably much more warp resistant then the original.

Great set of bones.  I often hear guys say it's a shame to cover all that great work!!  I agree!! But she'll be a great flyer for you!  Well done! Smiley

Thanks, Tom. The torque that the motor put out was unbelievable to me for such a small unit. This is a bones shot. Covering to follow.
