A little bit of airspeed and that thing looks a Peach JM.
If you cover those open structure wing bottoms you will probably do without those 'exciting' take offs as well.

Free flight is the answer, turn up too much close and plane down a big open circle. Rolling Eyes

I think so. Huh...

dang i like the look of that plane Smile also love the look of the Trexler tires. Just 2 questions, First how does she do with a rc conversion? Second, what did you use to seal the wood on the fuselage?

EDIT: i did not see the video posted above of it flying, so diregard my first question

Hello Mitchg, the RC conversion Futaba Radio is easy, is a big fuse, acess by bottom, two microservos, two rods with little wire and little plastic cuilins.

The fuse, tail and wings wood seal, cover and protect of fuel, nitro and oil, is one hand of dope and two hand of barnish (glaze) sintetic. Finish polish with wax. Laughing

And very important arround the engine Babe Bee .049 , the wood is coat with epoxi fluid used in fiberglass.

Mad Autobiography of JOE WAGNER

Post  jmcalata on Thu May 17, 2012 8:41 am

Year 1949.

Wagner tour America, demonstrating model airplanes, engines and race cars.

When that tour was over, I moved to southern California and began designing Free Flight model
kits for the Veco Company. The first of these was an all-sheet-balsa 1/2A sport Free Flight
biplane named Dakota Very Happy . It became an instant classic. Dakotas were the very first successful flying
models for several men I know of who later became influential in the model airplane field. (Doug
Spreng co-inventor of digital proportional Futaba Radio Radio Control, RC, – was one.)
The Dakota Biplane is arguably the best-selling Free Flight gas model kit design of all time, and is still
being made today. (In its final issue, Model Builder magazine rated the Veco Dakota as the best
sport Free Flight model of the past 25 years – despite the fact that it first appeared 46 years ago.)

Thanks for the pics, it looks a great looking plane The Creedence Clearwater Revival sound track was also great. In my opinion they're one of the best bands ever to come out or the USA
