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.

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:

Well...not exactly.
