As I said previously, the original was designed for glow power but I decided to go electric as I have with all my models. The model will be a similar size to the Wind S and I plan to use the same motor/ESC combo so I can use the 6s batteries I have.

The first thing I decided to do was to build the wings. The plan gives the option to build foam wings but as I plan to fit retracts, I find it easier with the traditional balsa frame. First step is the same for both ways, that is to produce blanks for the root and tip ribs. I made mine out of proskin, a thin glass fibre sheet which is opaque which make it easier.
