SAMURAI PROJECT HISTORY
As many of you familiar with combat already know, I along with Edmond L. Bridant, had in 1974, designed Midwest's FAI combat kit Firefly. An article on this design was published in Aero Modeller in May of 1975. The Firefly is an exceptionally good flying aircraft that has been quite successful, however, it could be better if it were to lose some weight. For this reason, I decided to start fresh with a totally different design. The Samurai, when compared to the Firefly, uses 2 less wing ribs and 2 outer center section ribs that are 3/32 rather than 1/8. The trailing edge is 11/4 inches wide tape r ing to 3/4 at the wingtips, instead of a straight 1‑1/2 inch piece. Spars on the Samurai are 3/16square spruce instead of 1/4 x 3/16 balsa.
