White Lightning Photo 2

This is a 1/2A to A class control line design for the Norvel .061 and TD .049/.051 class of engines. It's designed for sport flying and fun events, fully aerobatic and fast. I created this airplane in 2005 and it was built and flown by Warren Leadbetter of Austrailia and found to be alot of fun. Much of the design is calculated from proper mathmatical engineering ideas based on principles used in many stunters since the 1960's to present. Properly proportioned and arranged to give fine flying characteristics for sport and stunt flying. This model will fly the stunt pattern with no trouble.

Wing Span: 28"  • Wing Area: 168 Sq in. • Length: 21.25"

Gee thanks for the credit Bruce!

I did really enjoy making it and it was very hard to keep my mouth shut about it. It flies very well and I was very impressed with the manouverability of the little thing. The best sheet wing plane I've ever flown thats for sure. If anyone wants to see it, here it is
