the idea came for this from a lack of a traditional balsa style trainer in the swappable line. the wing has a 30" span and the fuse is 30" as well. all the control surfaces are 1 1/2" and give it plenty of authority if needed, it will barrel roll like a sport plane but is still very gentle and forgiving on low rates. as far as build plans i really dont have any as i built it on the fly out of my head but if anybody is interested im sure i can provide you with enough measurements to get you in the ball park if you want one of your own. thanks for looking, hopefully i have a video to go along with it shortly.
