The Raven is a profile version of the popular acrobatic performer named appropriately, "The Raven" This plane I just framed for a customer, ( I only charged him $75.00) so I don't have any opinions on its flight characteristics. I can tell you that for a profile, you have to build up the fuselage. Hmm, built up fuse, and they still call it a profile? Weird. They ought to call it the profile from hell. I didn't like the way you were supposed to skin the wings, ( having tried one of the wings exactly as the instructions stated, it left the top skin 1/4" short at the leading edge, making me fill a piece in of scrap. Lucky for my customer that I know how to fill & sand. Landing gear seems to be narrow to me, and the mounting of the fuel tanks is a real pain. Not a plane for those who have limited building experience, or those of you that are short on patience and creativity.
Framing although tough to do, came out real strong.
Doesn't that gear seem narrow to you? It did to me.
