Here are a couple of photos of my latest project. I'm just learning how to post photos. The first photo is of the stab outline hanging from the Harlan scale. The second is the wing covered with aluminized mylar... waiting for the clear tip panels to be installed.

Looks like you're doing a good job.

Is that built from Meuser's article of the same name? For those who haven't read the article, it's here:

I consulted this article while building my first penny plane and found it helpful. If you haven't built a limited penny plane before, I think you'll be very pleased with the performance.

Yes. It is Bob Meuser's design. This was the first PP I had ever seen; circa 1987. Wow it did over 8 minutes in a hangar. Being the young RC expert... I thought, no problem.  Another "Wow". This was way more difficult than it looked.

Getting close... but 2.5 grams without prop. This is the 7" cord version.

Not a bad weight...leaves .6 for the prop which is within reason for a fixed pitch OPP prop.

Open pennyplane isn't what I'd call an easy airplane to build, especially if you haven't rolled a fuselage before.

I think I will build the prop shown just to start... its kind of a vintage thing. We have a monthly CAT I site that is available the first monday every month.  So, I will finally have something to fly!
