Reply: First Flight
A little nose-heavy is not a bad thing - I use 3S 450mAh LiPo, which would be just a couple grams lighter. This plane, like most others, does not fly well when tail heavy!

The tail wheel has not been a problem for me, but I don't make long takeoff rolls and I fly from a grass field , so maybe there is a different drag factor in play. A swiveling tailwheel with a "tiller" bar attached to the rudder might be of use.

Dual rates for controls: I use 50% for Low and 100% for High and full-throw is 3/8" for all surfaces. I thought that was on the plans, but a quick review shows it is not. My apologies. The rudder and elevator surfaces are rather large and were intended to have "authority" at low speeds (half throttle or less). Flying at full throttle can be a little twitchy for a beginner with full throw on High rate. But the motor size was designed to have excess power in case the plane was built "heavy", and to be semi-aerobatic as your skills progress.

First Flight
Finished the plane and took it out for its first flight. A few observations on the behaviour I wanted to get your perspective on - notably is this expected or is there an issue with my construction.

First - the tail wheel prevents the plane from tracking correctly. After many attempts to bend/rebend it, I removed the wheel and wire and have the plane drag on a plastic slide. In other tail draggers, the wheel was connected to the rudder servo. Does your rear wheel track correctly?

Second - the plane balances a little nose heavy. I'm using a Venom 3s 950 mAh battery, very small 20 AMP ESC and 9x6 prop with an Eflite park 450. Good power to weight ratio, but wondered if you have had to apply much (if any) tail weight.

Finally - Curious what your high/low control throws are for the control surfaces. It seems like I should have more elevator throw, but am not sure I want to bump it up too much.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Security Sport - 5 cent model by Comet, 10in wingspan
Thanks for the information.

If this plan is one of them I just downloaded it fine.

Are you clicking the button or are you saving? You have to click the button to download the plans.

On Safari and chrome it downloaded perfectly.
Another plan I can't seem to download
I don't know why but there have been several plans that will not allow me to download them. I get redirected to the "Hotlinking is not allowed" page. I've tried clearing everything and reloading my browser, different browsers, even uninstalling all of my browser apps and extensions and reloading but the plans this happens with always kick me back to the no hotlink page. Haven't had the chance to try from a different device, however. I will admit this is a small annoyance considering the service provided here and I don't mean to complain, just inform. Thanks! Torq

Plan: Swift 2aeroastro on 16/07/2018 14:39
Swift - wing mounting
The plane appears to be a model of the Comper Swift and if so, is a high wing monoplane similar to numerous other general aviation planes such as a Piper Cub. The wing appears to have two 'plug in' panels that mate to fuselage-mounted tubes. The drawing is quite crude without a lot of details, so feel free to innovate as necessary!
Plan: Swift 2AeroBob on 16/07/2018 02:03
Wing is High, or mid, or low?
Has anyone actually built this model?

Where is the wing set against the fuselage? It is nor obvious to me. Maybe I have missed some clues.

It does not look to be high set as the curved cabin would not enable that.
The wing could be mid or low, but Figure 10 seems to contradict that. Maybe the Fig 10 side elevation contains a bit too much artistic licence.

Any ideas?

Is this your design?
