MM,
Is that a profile fuselage, slab wing plane with 28" wingspan?

That is too funny! ISTR every time I've seen the model on websites, it has always been white. I reluctantly posted the image after careful review if your blue one. Full size plans are out there. I'll see if I can find them quickly.

              I built one a few years ago. The plans called for a Cox TD or a Norvel. Well, neither balanced the model. Just as a idea, the weight of a TD .09 is approximately what 2 TD .049's weigh. It took that much weight. I asked Bruce about this and he said their example worked. I liked the design, the simplicity but the wing flexes which compromises maneuverability and this also happens on smaller sheet wingers like the Skyray. I removed the wing and had Phil Cartier cut me a extended version of his Lil Hacker foam wing. I moved the wing back and it flew a lot better.
