Default So I fixed my Jenny

I built a 1/32 Jenny, 16” span, off of plans from outerzone which went with about a 36” span .049 powered free flight one. Scaled em down and built this little plane in 2015. The plane never would fly, pretty thing but it just wallowed and fell out of the sky. The big boys here in FW had an electric open day and I went out and showed them my creations. The opinion was the wings were too warped so I scratchbuilt another set adding a top spar in 1/16” sq hardwood. Still, no joy, tinkered with the right and down thrust, side to side wallowing and yaw still a problem. I had been looking at the wing incidence and determined that compared to the stab a had way too high an angle of attack. So I butchered up the model again and reset the wings, had to bob the front cabane struts. So here are the pix, middle one is As Built in 2015, the other two show the modification. Note I also built a slightly bigger rudder.
