Here's a coupla' shots of the Dayton Wright I built from the old Jetco kit. Pretty low aspect ratio wing, but flies nice circles on one loop of 1/8th tan sport in my front yard!

Some of the guys in my club have built No Cal versions of the Dayton Wright and they fly like gangbusters! I think the span of their models is around 16 inches. A club member drew the plan they use and it's been quite successful.

Hi Hueydriver,

Nice job! How much does it weigh? I like that simple look.

Bit heavy at 9 grams approx. If I built it again, I'd use 1/20th strip vice 1/16 for the stringers. The Jetco kit was designed by Harry Struck, so the moments and non-scale dihedral are all good. The real machine had a solid balsa wing!!!!

Did you know that Charles H. Grant was a strong contributor to the airplanes design!

The real one hangs in the Henry Ford Museum, restored. Years ago, I visited that museum and at that time, it was sitting on the ground with the landing gear half collapsed. Sad, but now it is all good.

I'm getting ready to start on a Jetco Dayton-Wright RB-1 kit. I've been out of modeling for a number of years -- so I'd love to know if there is anything odd, or particularly challenging about this build.
