The Wisp is Ready to Fly

I finished the Wisp this weekend.  I didn’t get to fly Sunday as our local contest was cancelled due to wind and rain.

I am very pleased with the way this model turned out.  The coloring took time, but I am really happy with the red and black.  The tissue is red and black Esaki that has been over-colored with Sharpie marker.  The colors are really intense now.  The prop is hand carved to the specs on the original plan.  It is an 8″ prop, but the pitch is very low; somewhere around 6 or 7, I estimate.  The overall weight, without rubber, is 28 grams.  I think that is pretty good for a model that is just about 75 square inches!

I will have this down at the last FAC contest of the year at the Muncie Flying Site; the Ted Dock Memorial.  This will be next weekend, the 27th and 28th of September.  Again, this model fits into the FAC Events – OT Fuselage and 2 Bit Plus One.
