High Wing Trainer

 First off, should I do a build video? I got some basic pdf's made and the wing is easy to do, i just need some interest before i would make the build video.

So i always like my share of slow flying type planes and made this. Its a real basic design, i mean if you cant beat it, join it.

It is a 41 inch wing with an 8.5 inch cord.

Motor (from this kit): http://www.rctimer.com/product_786.html

Esc: 30 amp

Battery: 2200 3s

Prop: 9x4.7

It is full 4 channel control.

Let me know if you want a build video for this.

I do not have the wing/ailerons in the PDF since they alone take 11 pages and is a huge waste since there is nothing hard about cutting out the wing by hand.

Dimensions of wing: 8.5 x 41
Ailerons: 2 x 18
The wing is a ribbed wing (so you need two 8.5 x 41 6mm pieces of foam). The thickest part of the curve in the wing is 3/4 inch and is about 3 inches back from the leading edge. Here is how I make this style of wing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEgVogpcJuY Also the two little lines in the fuselage in the PDF is where the wing should go. Thanks for watching.
