Hello everybody!
This is my first topic. It's about my first attemp to pistachio. I choose a very simple plan Beardmore Wee Bee, in metric units. All frames and sliced ribs are 1 mm balsa. The cover job was made with esaki. The prop is also sensu plan.
one loop 12 cm of 1/16'' was used in his test flight.

Well, that is cute as a button, and probably not much bigger Smiley

Are the wheels/tires balsa?

Congratulations Harry

Hola José:..... ¿¿¿"Harry el sucio"Huh Grin

ok the model weight 4 grams. Esaki adds weight, but i don't have condenser paper at hand. The most difficult thing was the tail group construction. However a rapid search in youtube give a good answer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLOql6ieN5w.

Some pictures of my version (2 mm balsa templates) are attached.

Saludos vecino

Hola Julio!!
thanks for your comments.
Sensu is a latin form of "según" in the Cervantes's lenguage, or "according to" in that lenguage used in an european humid island. jajajaja

Un abrazo y fuerza contra Brasil

As you can see I have a lot to learn about Cervantes' language! Embarrassed
About the prop, it looks kind of translucent. What material is it made of?

Un abrazo!
Julio

Querido Julio:

You are right, the prop was made from a 2.5 liters cocacola bottle (plastic). One hand of thinned dope "aerogloss fokker red" give that color to the blades (and balance to the plane).

Un abrazo
