Taking a break from the larger high performance RC airplanes I have decided to build the Bandido again. Last time was in 1978, it flew great. I experienced a good flying Rubber job back then. I hope that this plane, this time will be the same.
Nothing special with this build. Fuselage up first. Traced and shaped. Two slab sides from 1/16th.
I think this design fits into the Embryo class well.

It looks like a good sport flyer.  However it is not eligible, as designed, for current FAC Embryo events.  Per the FAC Rule Book:

7. The wing and tail must be built up and covered on both sides (“double covered”) with Japanese tissue or equivalent.

Built up the surfaces to the tail outlines and you'll be fine. 

OR - just build it as is fly it for fun if you're not planning on FAC competition.

Ah, ok, thanks George, I am just a fun flier. My competitor is me... I had given the thought to build up the Empenage and may do it for performance sake.
