Can you be a little more specific about what you're wanting? Wing span, sheet wing or built-up, profile or built-up fuselage? There are many plans available that likely meet your needs, but give us a bit more info.

Post the picture if you can --- one of us may be able to identify it or provide a similar set of plans for you.

Here it is in PDF, but it's just the page, not a proper scale plan.

Happy XA-8

Post  afml on Fri Oct 04, 2013 9:03 pm

What memories!
I built one of those 'way back when' after finishing another diamond air-foiled design.
This one was a 35 size combat plane called DEAMON.
Still have it! Competed in the 69' Nats with it.
My XA-8 was powered by a larger OK Cub. Man did it ever fly!!
Better than the Lil' Satan.
No doubt the extra 'umph' from the larger motor.
Don't get me wrong, the Lil' Satan was GREAT!
But the XA-8 was scratch built and not from a kit.
Thanks for the memories!  Tired w/ Coffee Read

Post  batjac on Sat Oct 05, 2013 3:49 am

I did NOT need another plane to go into the build queue.....  Mad 

Oh, well.  I have a 1/2 ounce tank and a Medallion .049 that aren't dedicated to anything at the moment....  Besides, it seems like a quick build. And that note about the biggest guy at the field having the smallest plane is true. Oh, so true.

Looks good. A two hour build, sounds like a pretty good dream though.

Cool! I've been curious about this model. I'm in the same boat with my "foamie"... as far as finishing it before starting something else. Rolling Eyes You might as well start seeing how fast you can spin in a circle "now"!! Laughing

Wow, that thing ought to scoot Eric. But a two hour build......even after getting all the parts cut to length it would take me that long just thinking about where to start.

Hey getback,   Did you ever finish and fly your X8A. I may have to build one. I came across another Golden bee it's in nice shape. It needs a home.

Well thanks for the response, maybe someday you will get back to it. I know how it is I have started things in the past and they have been set aside for something else.

Sorry for the short response but , i found the build to bee a PIA maybe with better skills it would have went easier for me , some of the things i didn't quite get ..... Heck build one and let me know how it goes ?! For a TD .049 this thing would really get out of here ! The only info on it is in the pics. above Rolling Eyes sunny
