Omg your built her. I started building mine then had to move and starting over. It need a stronger spar? She seems to fly similar to the original from what I can tell but I flew mine about 20 years ago.

hi Brian ...yes i built her ...needed a few adjustments to get her flying nice ...mostly due to the heavier foamboard in the uk !
spar has not been much of a problem so far ,but i did a dihedral brace of three ply 1/16" and it has held up well !
not had her out for a while due to the uk weather (rain ,rain and more rain)
v2 is waiting for her maiden ...added ailerons to a slightly shorter wing and made some adustment to the tail configuration i am sure summer might make an appearance some time this year lol...fingers crossed !!!
do give her a go Brian ,its nice seeing some older models in the sky...
