Hi BG, good to see you back modelling/posting again, still have my full scale PC7 I based on your plan, it flies equaly well in LH or RH circles!  I have never had a model that will do that before.

Yep, put all the bits on and did not seem to affect the trim much, will check the CG position and let you know.  Ended up with a fair bit of positive incidence on the tail plane though.

Looking good! I haven't flown mine yet. My latest excuse is that I am waiting for the long grass to get longer  Grin

Hi All,
Some small progress. She now has her hydroplanes, spinner, nose block etc. Basically at the point of starting to cover and do the prop etc. Weight as is: 14g

Completion will proceed in the fall. I have a busy summer ahead.

Bernard, this thing is gonna be a blast to fly, my guess is that its gonna want to fly fast. I have a rubber Mig-15 that I never tire of. It is a riot to watch it scream around in circles. I watched movies of the real PC-7 on YouTube, its one fun plane to watch. The same country that gave us Sophia Loren also gave us some hot planes to swoon over.

If I had bones like that I'd fell young again.  Would like to see completed model.
