Beechcraft 17 (Staggerwing)

I designed and built this model for a friend of mine.  This is a smooth flyer with no roll/yaw coupling enabling easy knife edge flight, which was a pleasant surprise.  Takeoffs are easy with no elevator needed when taxiing.  Just gradually apply power and it lifts onto the mains in about 20' and tracks nice and straight.  The .46 FX is way more power than is needed in this plane, a .40 FP would be plenty of power.
