Looks good, Caley.

Go for the larger prop.

A standard Hepcat is more than happy with equivalent of 12 strands of 1/8th, 30g.

Jim,  Thanks a lot for the info.  I know this is supposed to be a power model, but I am just flying it for a minute or two.  It doesn't have to climb like crazy either.  If the model doesn't like 8 strands, I can always step things up to 10 strands.

I thought the larger prop might be the one.  It also is 1.25 grams lighter than the P-P prop, and that will allow me to correct a mistake; that being goofing on placing the pylon.  I had to add a gram of tail weight.

I built a Hepcat once, I powered it with the equivalent of 9 strands of 1/8"  ie  6x 3/16 about 20grams, flew well as they all do

Finished assembling the Mike Nassise MH-1521 Broussard last night, got it in the air this morning.  22" span, weighs ~23.4g without rubber.  Initial flights looked quite nice, stopped early after popping loose a propeller blade while winding.

That’s lovely! I wish I could make a model that weighed about a gram for each inch span Smiley

More great stuff from Texas Mike.  Any chance of some detail on the prop - that's a nice looking paddle with potential for big Lysandiae...

  Mike that's lovely, it's always a pleasure to see your models.
I had second thoughts about posting this  Embarrassed but it is what it is.  After watching the video posted by "dhable" and then the plan location supplied by "indoorflyer" I just had to build a Skiptown Mystery by Tom Nallen. The design really appealed to me and I needed a new Indoor model.  Last night was the first Indoor of the year and I took it along. BORING it flew straight off the board! Only adjustment was some left rudder while test gliding, I managed a flight of around 40 seconds but it was over powered so there is a bit more left in it yet.

Mike, not only is that perfectly exactly what a balsa and tissue model aeroplane should look like, I also think you're up for the "Most Evocative Photographic Setting Prize"... I felt I was actually there at the aerodrome!

The Skiptown Mystery is a great looking model!

Is there any chance you could share the "location" of the plans for the Skiptown Mystery? I would love to build one because as soon as I saw the pictures they jumped off the screen shouting "Pick Me! Pick Me!"  

Since I don't have access to an indoor venue, do you think it would be a viable design to scale up to 25-30" span?

 Hi Dan
              Thanks go to "Indoorflyer" for posting the link  http://www.flyingacesclub.com/Newsletters/issue163.pdf
I'm sure a larger one would be great had the same thought myself but the 16" one should be OK as well.

DPUTT7,  Wonderful looking model.  The tail is certainly different from the norm.

Thanks Mike (and all) for the kind words.  The Broussard's prop is based on one by Tom Hallman shown in another of his excellent videos here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUajqbTIARM.  This was my first attempt at this sort of prop and overall I like it.  I think the yogurt container plastic I used is not the best material for the job - it's a bit more flexible than I'd like and the CA didn't grab all that well on it.  I popped a blade off holding the prop under my arm as I was winding yesterday - would probably be more solid with a laminated wood blade like IronMike uses on his kits.  I'll glue this one back together and if I have more adhesion issues I'll try a different blade material.  The prop is 6-7/8" dia, ~14% blade width and nominally 1.3 P/D.  Seems to pull the model around quite satisfactorily.
