High Quality Plan Sets and Laser Cut Partial Kits for Radio Control
Chester Chaplaskie's Thunder Bird 45
The Thunderbird is a bit more complex to build. It has a unique shape
to the nose with a double taper on the bottom that took a while to simplify
without losing any of the
shape. Interlocking ply parts keep everything symmetrical in that
area in this kit. It was all stick construction on the original plans. Both 1/2A and
outrunner motor installations are detailed on the plans and laser cut
parts are provided for both. The airplane has great looks that are much like an airplane
from the late thirties.
It is a good size for 1/2A competition. It needed no ballast
to balance properly for flight with 1/2A power.
Aspect Ratio 7.51
t/c 14.4 Tail Area
weight for 1/2A Texaco is 14.9 ounces

parts are included in the partial kit.
