Why is it that the smaller the plane the more fun I have flying? Does that happen to others too? These little airplanes are cheap, easy to build, but give so much joy.

That's nice to hear.

I built one from Dollar Tree foamboard, lot's of fun. Mine has a funny quirk though, sometimes when I roll it it gets stuck inverted and I have to loop out of it.

New rotor hub.

I decided to get a rotor and blades from http://www.flyingbalsa.com/
So now it has three blades rather than two. I made the blades 26.5" which works out to about 2200 sq in of rotor disk.

This is my rotor plate. I'm going to use two blades, the angle cut feathers the blade as it goes up. I use the thickness of the ply to keep the blades from going down, the gap on the top allows the...

Stab, vertical fin and rudder.

Slow progress, I had to put a new door on the garage/workshop.

I built a stab out of 1/4"x3/8" balsa sticks. I pinned the last "rib" on each side with a toothpick, they are the most likely to get...

That looks pretty cool. I have a J-39 that I've flown a couple of times, it's a bit of a handful. I'm hoping I can get it to fly better, but this looks like a good use if I can't.:cool:
