Model Airplane News has a contest to build interest in RC model building while giving its readers an excuse to get back in the workshop. I has been busy and have come up with several models based on the contest basic structure. Check out the MAN contest and see if you can come up with something truly unique. Deadline to submit your entry is January 1, 2014
Check out our latest work here.
Here is the basic low wing design with an added cabin section and the wing moved up on top to produce this Cessna inspired design. With trike gear and a Cessna 150-ish fin and rudder, it looks like it would make a great sport flyer or even a trainer.
Here’s the basic design the contest is based on.
