Bought these plans from Dave in 1996 I think...been 'saving' them until technology got small enough...a 80 gram bywing  on floats? Does this setup sound doable? A BR1806 motor, couple of micro aileron servos, and my new micro brick???

I will build her as Dave did....nice and lightweight......

Very doable with the correct size battery. Why to fake IC look?

All the best,

Cut it twice and it's still too short!

Looking forward to the build.  I have a 24” span Hornet Moth started that I plan to use a brushless 180 in.

Have you made any progress on your Hornet Moth?  I haven’t gone anywhere on mine.

Tim, I've been finishing up a build, 3ch Yankee from Volare products...and I had some 'bones' that I put tissue on...stuff....  Cool
I've got her on my soon list, Dave Reeves did a beautiful plane....as were all of his....I DO want to build her! But I think electric 3ch....super lite stuff....the rubber jobs are so hard to run after!

Yeah, Dave Rees drafted some outstanding large FF plans.  I have a copy of his Vega drawings around here somewhere that I really ought to build.

The Hornet Moth as both an airplane and a Rees plan rates among my favourites.  On further reflection on the RC Hornet Moth I started as an adaptation of another plan, I think I’m going to bin the project now and do it the right way some day.  The Rees plan adapted to 3ch electric or scaled up a bit for 4ch would be a lovely calm evening flyer.
