The model presented here is based on Nexus 3-view drawings from England that are available in the U.S. from Bob Holman Plans Service.

First was the success and attractiveness of a 38-inch Speed 4000 version I built several years ago. Second was the availability of the ModelAir Tech 3.6:1 belt drive, which I powered with a DeWalt drill motor. The idea of building an IMAA-legal airplane and powering it with a $110 drive system was too good to resist!
