Wonderful Tony!  You're going to lose that one soon.  What is the software you're using for design?

BTW, some of that nice balsa from the F-16 parts sheets has made its way into my Keleher Lark peanut build...

Cheers,

Mike

What a magnificent little flying beast Tony. Great choice of subject as well - particularly with that small fin. It transitions well - you are launching with the left hand? I agree with Mike - you were lucky to keep it out of Hung's hands.

I managed a CLG session just before lock down at a local park and lost it in a weak thermal.

Take care.

Cheers

Thanks guys I appreciate it.
It was a fun project.

Hi John I hope you are well.
I'm glad you had some time to fly before the lock down. Smiley
Too bad you lost that one.  Angry
Yes you're right of course, I'm launching left handed then circling right.

Thanks Mike, it's Auto Cad and xfoil.
I don't remember any good wood sent but am glad it's going to good use! Grin
I'll probably lose it in the trees. Should probably paint it orange. Roll Eyes

We'll have to see if we can get up to the outdoor event FLYACE.
What could be more enjoyable than watching models flying around! Grin
If nothing else that cup of Joe.

As far as design and development, I failed to mention in the last post the basswood strip along the wing leading edge.
Even though I think this is a common practice it's worth mention here for others that might come after.
The current model has seen it's share of hard hits with no damage.

I've put up a couple of clips of this tank in light thermals John and there's no chance of loosing it to Hung. Grin Smiley Cheesy Grin

Please be safe.
Tony

Thanks Tony. They must have been light thermals as your "tank" has a lovely floating glide. I think Hung must have been otherwise occupied Smiley

Take care
