Here's one of Jon's flights with the Dart Kitten.
Looking very good ... Jon knows what adjustments he wishes to make to adjust flying speed and landing as mentioned in his previous post.

Nice stable climb and cruise under power Jon. Perhaps a non scale turbulator strip on the left inside wing tip area(a couple of layers of 1.5mm wide magic tape strips or similar) may help.

Hi Jon,
just seen the pics and the Vids for your Beautiful Dart Kitten and I was very much impressed!! Did you draw up the plans yourself and what is it's span? I must admit i wouldn't mind having a go at buliding this myself.

Cheers for now.

ATB Dave.   Cheesy

Hi Dave, thanks for the interest. This is my own design (plan just needs finishing when I get around to it) and the span is 16". The wood is all 1/16sq so it would scale up to 24" with 3/32 wood quite nicely. The tail and fin are scale outlines if you are concerned about that sort of thing for comps. If you're interested you're very welcome to it Smiley

I stripped some rubber and flew it today on 0.080" which gave a slower cruise and a better powered descent. I wet and reset the washout to give less differential (more or less equal on both wings now or perhaps a touch more on the outer) which has cured the wing drop. I didn't get to ROG it but at least I know it's tamed for the next session  Grin

Hi Jon,
Yes I'm definitely interested. It's certainly the right size for me. If you could let me have a copy of the plan when your ready that would be great!

Cheers, Dave.   Grin
