Soneri, scratch build

Post by melfyn on Thu May 21, 2009 10:39 pm

Here is my latest project built the old fashioned way from scratch from a free RCM&E plan. The Soneri, a 42" span semi scale aerobatic design to be powered by an ASP 32.

Fusellage WIP.



Don't know why but for some reason the froum has chopped the front of the fusellage photo off! Mad

Wing WIP.

Maybe but this one as you can see from the mount is destined to have an ASP .32 fitted as it was lying around doing nothing so no extra outlay needed there. Razz
