Many of us have memories of flying the Goldberg Eaglet 50 when we were just learning to fly. For those wanting to take a trip down memory lane, I present to you the Beaglet 40! This is designed to be built using FT standard build methods, so if you are familiar with their builds, you will feel right at home with this one.

In my opinion, it flys every bit as stable as the Eaglet 50.

I used the B Power Pack on this build, but would be willing to try an A Power Pack on it.

Note: the flat side of the spar goes up, and make sure the beveled end is in the center of the wing.

On the one in the picture, I used the tail wheel assembly that I designed for the Tiny Tutor. I had to cut a notch in the rudder so that the brace could fit between the rudder and the horizontal stab.

I would love to hear your feedback and see pictures of your builds.

Thanks,
John
