A Swedish Stork

#1
Hi all,

I want to show you my little Swede:

There are some small modifications to the original design.

I made the wing in three pieces because my Foamboard isn't long enough for the wing halves.

I cut 40 mm from each halve plan and made a centerpiece of 80 mm.

The elevator got beefed up by a piece of barbeque skewer in the bevel cut.

The greenhouse got 3D. The fuselage is 80 mm wide now.

One Multiplex plug is for all 4 servos. (cold fingers mod)

Later insulated by low temp hot glue.

The long struts are kinked to make them a bit softer.

landing gear fairings are mandatory.

Windows are made from household vinyl.

Aircraft marking are printed with colour laser printer on ordinary office paper.

I made a border in aircraft colour for ease of application.

I used Planatol Elasta for application.

Some little touches of colour here and there and my little swede can fly.

There are pictures of the greenhouse

My plan is still drawn by pencil, but I can do a .pdf on demand

All cuts are double bevel.

The wing joines are made as shown in the original build video, just two times. The diheadral pattern is only half the height.

Very very nice! Especially the 3d greenhouse. I love my Storch. So easy to fly and landings are a breeze. Be sure to have plenty of power for takeoffs or she will tip stall.

Hotwax, awesome build as usual. Really like the mods. I might have to pick up some of those skis for some winter flying.
