I thought I would share my latest airplane, first one in about 7-8 years. I built this over the span of about 3 weeks and have till Friday to get it flying for a competition here in Minneapolis MN. So far test glides without the propeller on have been beautiful and just a little nose heavy with the propeller on. Also, I weighed it before I put the struts and windows in and it came in at just over 14 grams without the propeller and motor. If anybody has any questions let me know and I will try to answer them the best I can.

I'd say you haven't forgotten how it's done. Nice work, deck! Bet the addition of rubber balances things out just about right. Post back with your trimming results!

Truly classy model. Please keep us informed on its flying/progress.

...And of course, are you intending to post the plan to the gallery?

Greg,

The plan is already in the gallery section. Do a search for bostonian and you should find it on page 2 of your search. That is how I originally found it. As for flying, well yesterday I tried letting it ROG at work and it smacked into a pole and broke part of the leading edge of the wing just as it was getting airborne. I fixed that up last night and will hopefully get a chance to fly it tonight after work if it's not too windy out. I will keep you posted.
