I have decided to release this plan to all of the Hip Pocket builders for free.  This was the last plan I designed and built before my 10-year hiatus and I just never gave the prototype enough testing time.  Attached are some photos of my prototype.  To compare my plan to the full scale plane, go here: http://www.betterhalfvw.com/

So, just head over to my site (http://volare.teamwetworks.com) and find it under PLANS-FREE.  I have tested the site - you will place it in your shopping cart, just like normal, but will not be charged and on the last page of checkout, you will be provided a download link.

Thanks, good luck, and let me know if you have success!

That is a darned cute little thing, and the download worked perfectly.  Thanks!   Really use basswood for the fuselage?

I did not.  I used square stock and sanded it to round.  However, that makes the balsa fuselage a bit fragile.  That, plus no additional strength from tissue covering made me nervous as to handling and over-powering the model.  I don't know that I ever put full winds into it - or it's possible that I used too light of a rubber motor.

Don't get me wrong, the triangular structure builds in strength.  But I think basswood dowels (if you can find or make them) might make for a tougher model.

I see that this has been downloaded over 60 times.  Has anyone built and flown this plan?  I'd love to see examples and hear of successes.

I am taking mine on an indoor adventure today.  I will report back later.

Well, I took this out (or "in") on Sunday and tried a few times to get it flying.  I was using a loop of 1/16", maybe 10" long - just something to see if it would fly.  I also put a 4" peck prop on it, hoping the motor would spinit to success!  Also, the model weighs in at just over 5 grams - probably the lightest Peanut I ever built.

Well, long story short, giving it some rudder and side thrust, I was able to get the little thing to fly in circles with stability.  However, the best flight was only 18.5 seconds - not the FAC minimum of 20 seconds Sad  I think I am just too afraid of the delicate structure to put any power to it.

Anyway, I think I will put the seat back in it and this will go back on the shelf.  Smiley

Hi,

I transferred to a different web host and URL.  I will see if I can get the Legal Eagle Plan uploaded and provide a link tomorrow.
