No, I am trying to finish a plane for our local Winter Build Challenge.

And if that wasn't enough, I have 2 complete kitchen remodels going at the same time, and 4 laminate floors to install.

My plans and the instruction book do not show anything other than the single engine plane.
I think my kit is an early version, so maybe they had not thought of that yet.

I would expect it to have been a...

The plane is almost a powered glider in the first place, why would you put 3 motors on it?
The size of those motors seem excessive.

It might be cute with 3 TeeDee .049's mostly for the sound.

I already thought about cutting out large areas of the light ply fuselage, seems like overkill to me the way they have it.

Not sure when I will get started, I am trying...

FINALLY :D I just found my old kit.


I thought we had started the wing, but it looks like almost nothing was done.
Maybe just digging around in the kit, you know if you take more than 3 pieces...

I've been looking but can't find my partially started MEN trainer kit.

"Wait a minute, you actually built that?"

In the 80's my friend had a MEN trainer. He modified it to have outer ailerons and large inner flaps.
