Eugene LaFaille was kind enough to send me some photos of the Whizard he built from my kit. That’s a nice looking plane! And it’s great to see it flying with a genuine Cox engine, too. Scroll down to the bottom to see Eugene’s other photos.
This is the classic plan published in RCM, and offered by Ace RC for many years as a kit. Flies great with a Cox 049 or electric power. The original plane used an Ace foam wing with another wing segment in the center. My kit has a built up balsa wing with the original airfoil. Here’s a plan for the built up wing. (Whizard Wing)
Sheeting is 1/16″ balsa. Leading edge is 1/4″ balsa. If you build per the plan, the trailing edge is a piece of 1/4 x 3/4 balsa tapered trailing edge stock. Let me know if you want to build with ailerons and I’ll supply ribs that are 1/4 inch shorter. In that case, use a 1/4 balsa stick on the trailing edge, and use your 1/4 x 3/4 balsa tapered stick for the ailerons.
