Nice looking plane, John. I plan on building something similar (haven't decided high vs. low wing yet), only out of coro. I promise I'll start building from wood as soon as I retire

Re: Gas Pains

That's no problem. The large expense was the covering. The rest is 3/32 for the ribs with 3/16 sheet fuselage and odds and ends I have around.
ps: Sending you a pm on the other topic.

Re: Gas Pains


It weighs about 10 lbs. It it not quite all finished yet, still need to get aileron servos and some proper linkages
I have had it running around the back yard and it seems to pull pretty good. It has a 16-8 prop on it but I don't know the rpm as I don't have a tach.

Re: Gas Pains

Quadra 35/42s work very well on batt ign. Does away with the flywheel, which is a good chunk of the total weight. The ign module weighs about the same or less than the mag coil. 4 cell rcvr pack or 2 cell B&D A123s work well. I use CH ign system that runs off 500 ma. 4.8 to 6 volts. Plastic prop makes a good flywheel. Noticeable difference between it and a wood as far as smooth running is concerned.
