I gave her a little test fly today. She was nose heavy! I made it so that it would not be tail heavy and she certainly is not that.. I had to add about 2 grams to the tail. I made the elevator a lifting one and modified the front end so that it was solid balsa but i seemed to have done too much in the way of nose weight addition and she is now nose heavy..

After i added all the clay to the tail i eventually got her flying nicely in the front yard on a few turns so it defeinetly looks promising.. Going flying this sunday so stay tuned.

regards
Matthew

Matt, that looks awesome. Can you pass those plans along? Also, do you have any documentation for it?

I will have to scan the plans for you Joshua.. give me a little while and i will send them electronically. they are not the flashest plans you can get but they seem to do the job.

Hi Lemuel,

Very nice HFS-1. Didn't know it existed! I'd like a plan too, please. Just starting on the Dixon Nipper, thanks to you.
