Hello all, I'm going old school with this one. It is from a Model Aviation magazine from the 70s. The plans call for spruce longerons and a cox medallion 049.
With a 56 inch span it is big compared to what I usually build. The article says that back then with the heavier R/C equipment it flew well as a two or three channel between 16 and 20 oz. I should get mine lighter than that. I've put a Himax HC2808 1160 motor in mine and plan on using a three cell battery. What I'm wondering is should I build it with as a four channel with ailerons or just go with rudder, elevator and throttle like the original.  The plans call for one inch of dihederal at the tips. (not much for a model without ailerons.) I'm thinking I might add ailerons and cut the dihedral down to about 1/2 an inch at the tip. What do you all think?

Always go for more control!

Even on my smaller 18" models the added complexity and weight of ailerons is well worth it for the added flexibility and flying enjoyment.

Straight, high winged aircraft don't need much dihedral to induce the rudder commanded roll. I've been known to even use anhedral to get the neutral feel I want. But that's another story.


All the best,

Cut it twice and it's still too short!

If being slow produces results that good don't ever speed up.
