Introduction: G-110 Floater

A 1939 design with my modern updates . 110" wingspan . Electric motor with folding propeller . Three controls ; rudder, elevator and throttle . Mostly balsa with some plywood in high stress areas . Fiberglass and carbon fiber also added for strength in the boom area . Scratch built from plans . I am also in the process of designing my own 3.8 meter powered sailplane . The wing will be laser cut for accuracy and time saving . I have a friend in Washington state doing the Cad work . I've been at this hobby for 60 years so far . Keeps me broke but happy !

Many years ago, I built one of the commercial balsa hand launched gliders. I think it was from Gullows. It was magical to see it glide and hug the air in flight. I still have it and occasionally launch it to catch the thermals that come up the hill that I live on. Yours looks like a real labor of love. Your glider caught my eye as it has the same wing pattern as my old hand launched glider.
