I call this the “ultimate” Dimer. Why? Because the original Cessna 305 flew two weeks before our FAC Dime Scale cut-off date! “Ultimate” as in “last”!
This kit builds fast and light, has flattened sides and bottom, but still retains the characteristic trapezoidal cabin cross section.
NOTE: the wooden prop shown in the photos is not legal for FAC Dime Scale as it is of multiple-piece construction. Test flight shows a Peck 6″ prop (legal).
Check out my build and design write-up HERE.
and my test flight video right here:
This SHORT KIT contains a plan and two sheets of laser cut parts.
My prototype used a 6″ Peck prop with a loop of 1/8″ rubber and came out at 11 grams ready to fly without rubber.
