The picture above and the following 3 are of "Stevies'" Electric model 3.1m and geared for a long leisurely climb. Stevie builds to free flight principles and as a result his models will fly easily "hands off" All his models are O/D and come in some unusual, but aerodynamically sound shapes!

Stevie has kindly supplied a 3 view and further details of his 3.1m electric called E-Sona Balsa Cabin Serenade Bill Scotts' Algebra. After a major crash last year (2005) the model was rebuilt using AG airfoils instead of the standard SD 7037
