....the build began on 23/12 although the newspaper is from 18/12

the airfoil chosen was NACA 2412 but the available foam was just 1 in thick, so used only the top part of the foil and added 2-3 mm below the chord line....so its now only 9%

here's a short video

....the battery hatch, cockpit and cover for servos are just held with tape and bands....magnet/suitable locks are yet to be done.....so are the markings...hope to do this soon.

 it weighs 860 RTF.....thats 8.6 oz/sft WL. (wing is 10.5 RC, 7.5 TC including ailerons, average to 9, AR of 6)

....flies great...and the video of the maiden is interesting due to the ambient sounds and commentary....but will edit that and post soon.  Grin Grin

 ....a pic of the commencement....actually began on 23/12 although the paper is from 18.....so thats about a week and enough distractions in between  Grin......

thanks....and wish you all the best  Thumbs Up

wrap-up:

re-posting this with the edited soundtrack.

....besides being my first full blown 4 ch low wing scale(attempt) .....(and a reincarnation of an Old Relic from my boyhood Roll Eyes)....there's an interesting background about this build.

 after the last few weeks of building, I thought I had enough and will spend the last few days of the year consolidating my workbench Grin...a casual conversation and quick exchanges of few pics on Whatsapp with a friend led me to this.....I wanted to build the Volksplane liesurely http://www.pimaair.org/aircraft-by-name/item/evans-vp-1-volksplane

.....looking at the pics of Me 109 brought back a rush of memories ...and I said to myself....a consolidated,clean workshop is as mythical as the Pegasus....just had to build it. Grin Grin Grin

 ....will post when I have finished the plane.

 btw, the last 40 sec of this video until landing is power off glide

 ....its been fun !
