Default Chasing the Goldberg out; an Electra evolves into a 4 channel ship.

it was ‘free to a good home’ and have always wanted to do this. Remove the polyhedral, add ailerons, and give her some landing gear.
So, when someone left this at the field I seized the moment.

She was only sticks when I got her, not well assembled and needed help or she would have never flown - I think someone’s first build. The reports of others who tried without success - well, You can’t argue with success.
Nicknamed Carmen and she is for sale.
