The RUTANGO is, for all practical purposes, FINISHED except for a trim stripe or two.  One bit of striping (either paint or tissue) will go around the cabin - the cutting guide marks didn't wash off.  I guess the OHP marker I used worked "permanent" on the plastic used.  No additional ballast was needed to maintain the CG and there is no noticeable shift with or without the landing gear.  The gear will be used only for indoor flying - the wheels roll SO smoothly that I had trouble keeping the model stationary for the photos!

A pleasant surprise was the final weight of 26.7 grams (w/o rubber and with landing gear) - 29.8gm with the short motors - where my goal was for under 30.  This is a bit under the weight with the "skeleton" fuselage used for incidence testing and will allow me to do a bit more "moisture proofing".

Follow-up flight testing with the full fuselage might be possible tomorrow.

Pete and Don inspired this rendition of the Rutango...

Mine still needs some paint trimming and the finalizing of the wing mounting system.  But almost completed! Glue is still drying on the canopy glazing.

Agree with FD - even the yellow props seem correct.
Thats a neat Pearl FD. I like the way the diagonal ribs brace the tip ribs on the wing and stab. The prop looks a little unusual - is it a custom prop?

Prop is an APC 5.5 X 2.  Seems to pull better than the UC Combat toothpicks.

Hi Tom,

Agree with the above, and think you need some superman decals.

Nice work!

Thanks Flyace1946, Don, OZPAF, frash and y'all....

I did borrow from the Superman outfit scheme of red and blue.  Got some trim to finish and I'm looking for some Superman "S" decals or stickers to add to the model.  I'm checking the Dollar Tree Store in the kids sticker section and Michaels if I don't find anything there.

The yellow props where just what I had on hand and I do like the way they look.

Thanks again y'all for the kind comments, she's definitely not your everyday model.  It's all Don and Pete's fault, I just couldn't pass this up after seeing their models!!!  Well Done Guy!

Dean, really cool 1/2A!!! Have you tacked that Picco engine yet. I lost a Cyclone last year and am looking for something to replace it. On another note, how's the Big Dawg coming along.

Nice models, Gents.

Haven't tached the Picco yet.  Pulls so hard I just want to get rid of it!  I do highly recommend this engine.  Although Imdon't think Charlie Caton had the right prop on hid Cyclon, I was getting MUCH higher.  This Pearl is "scarey fast" with the Picco.  Adding CF caps to diagonals on the Big Dawg wing.  Added shear webs to the stab.  Probably ready to fly in about 10 days or so.  With the Novarossi, the nose will be very short!

You know how you think you've completed a model and you've done everything you'd plan to do...then you take some pictures of the plane to post and you see a glaring missing element!

TAAA DAAAA....I've just done it!  Can you see it?

Here's the pictures,  I still have to build a stooge for this beauty!

Thanks FLYACE1946... It's just a full size Rutango, plans by Bill Brown in the plans gallery, but this was inspired by Don and Pete, Don built one on the quicky cookup on SFA and Pete built one on the S&T any twin cookup.  I went with this red & blue scheme and had the yellow props in the proper size and decided the yellow went with this scheme.  Don said it looked like "Superman" scheme and recommended the Superman emblem.  So that's how the Super Rutango came about.

Here's the link to the plan: Click Here
