Electric it's gonna need lipo space so I think a nitro with a tuned pipe out the bottom and underneath. Just angle it oh so slightly down and away from the fuselage.

I'm thinking a 70 inch wingspan with an OS 75AX and a MACS One Piece Muffler, that should scoot along really well.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Or I could use a Perry Pump and not need it.

I found a set of plans for La Donna I want to use. I'd seen a couple of sets but they weren't setup the way I wanted so I looked a bit more and found these. They're from page 106 of the Aero Modeler Annual 1964-1965. I couldn't believe I found a PDF of the issue I needed, how cool is that. They were cut up like a lot of plans are so I used Photoshop and created the plans I needed for 3ds Max. Here's pictures of the original page I copied from the PDF and the plans I created from it with everything fully drawn. I guess next I'll create a build thread for the plane.

The side view of the front reminds me of a P-51 or P-40/47.

In the front view the wings are really thick they take up most of the fuselage.

I'll be looking for your new build thread. I've been doing more on the .60 sized Kadet since I sent it to you. Maybe I should have Doug see what he can do on the physics.

Nice choice technoid!
Past voting time of course, but I'd have suggested the center control surface stay in as flaps. Looks good.

Enjoy a great and safe weekend.
