The Ricochet

The Ricochet is one of those Yard Dart, or ultimate fun fly planes capable of insane flight control. This one was re-designed with tail dragger landing gear, a steerable tailwheel, counter balanced ailerons and a internal fuel tank. For flight trimming, I used a O.S. Max FS 40 4-stroke. Although it was a little heavy, I liked the massive amounts of torque. I can torque roll this plane 5 feet off the ground.

I'll give credit for the flames to my nephew Ian, who drew the templates used to cut to Monokote. Notice how they are exactly opposite on the opposing wings.
