Built this yesterday for the QBC on SFA, will finish it today with some shrinking, glazing and wheels. Such a cute little Bostonian!

Hi Monique,

I built several of these. I savored flying them, one quite heavy and the others better. I can't recall the weights, but I do remember trying to get the trim right; during the power burst, I always had a bit of a stall; the models went through a hesitation, just that one hiccup before transitioning to smooth climb and cruise. I found the plan in an old model magazine. I think the designer also came up with a similar low wing version. As usual, the model is grand. Good for you.

Found a gap today (and a fantastic field a minute's drive from me!) so took the Banana for some flying. A bit of nose weight, some down thrust and off she went! I did two low turn tests, and two almost 1000 turn longer flights. I had that feeling of 'just one more', but decided against it and packed up. Here's some pics I took with my SLR and vids. The vid quality is fantastic on the phone, but crappy once emailed, so apols (iPhone... HD? pfffft...).

A great little flyer, I will build more!

What a lovely little plane... it just has "the look". It seems that just a bit more torque would make those flights quite memorable. With the present trim, it seems as if more torque would be handled nicely.
