Beautiful mount, but I'm wondering why you put metal washers between it and the firewall? Wouldn't it be better to mount it flush?

Wow! That is a really nice Kaos. :D

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.

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.

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...
