Does the airplane in the pictures look familiar?

Looks like a Pocket Rocket.

Will have to try one for electric, but at 25" is too small for E36 and too big for E20. Should go nicely with a 10 gm Hobby King motor.

yup, it's a pocket rocket for electric. will have a eflight Park 180, with one of Dansrans timers.

And, yes, too small for E-36, too big for E-20. But just right for some fun flying!

it's pretty much aerodynamically idendtical, but i built the stab in a F1B style with an airfoil. I also changed the wing construction a bit.

Looking forward to test flying this one.

The Pocket Rocket is completed, and had it's maiden flight yesterday afternoon!

John, you should be proud! The airplane "flew off the board". No adjustments needed.

It was about 27 degrees F, and a bit of a breeze, but the airplane just climbed straight out with a slight left turn (probably will want to adjust that come Spring) and a very nice transition to a right glide turn. As it was cold and breezy, I only used a 3 second motor run and a 6 second DT, but it looks like it going to be a fun one to fly.

Attached are a few pictures of the completed airplane. The hardest part, of course, was finding a place for everything. As you can see, I ended up hanging the battery under the nose and the ESC on the side of the pylon.
