Greetings all,

Here's my latest build. A 40" Lacy M-10 for 4 channel R/C. I've built several free flight versions that are stable and fly well with no dihedral so I thought a bigger R/C version would be a good starting point for aerobatic flying. All theories need to be proven in practice. In this case actual flying! Still more to do before covering. I've haven't decided what the covering will be?

Hi Tom.  Very nice Lacy.  I bet she will fly great. My vote is for Doculam & a little paint Smiley   To keep it light for aerobatics....
But what ever covering you chose I'm sure the M-10 will be excellent.  Looking forward to seeing her fly.    Skip.

As nice as that structure is, I'd suggest some translucent film.  It isn't scale, but it'll sure look good!

Alternatives that fit my taste would be tissue & dope, silkspan & dope (if you can find it), or Micafilm.

Thank for the comments everyone.

My favorite covering lately has been Polyspan and nitrate dope with sprayed color trim. I will decide soon:)

Hi Skip!

Almost ready to cover. More pieces have been applied since I took the photos. I've been busy getting back to my flying lessons, but I should start covering next week.

Had it's first flights this morning. The rudder incorrectly installed with right turn so I fixed that. I had one bad landing that caused some damage which has been fixed. I tried a 3 cell battery but I think 2 cell will be enough. 3 cells was a too much power. A stable flyer and once it's adjusted correctly it should be lots of fun. It will fly again tomorrow morning.

Model covered with Econokote. Very easy to use a bit lighter and lower temp than Monokote. Not as light as Doculam. Model is NOT finished until I'm done test flying.

Hi Tom.  Happy New Year!   I sure like your Lacy M-10.  She looks great in yellow & black.  If you get a chance tomorrow,
maybe you could get some flight video.   We will have to fly together soon.

Things did not go well the past few days. A bad motor, a new motor and a new crash! Model was banking to the left and I could save it? Either I didn't do enough or I messed up in the planning somewhere. A bad cartwheel into the ground:( I will leave it be for a while and go on to something else.
