I'm ashamed to admit that the Avia is an aircraft that I know practically nothing about. I saw an R/C version of the ship on the cover of a magazine, and was immediately attracted by the colorful Czech markings and the three-color "between the wars" camouflage. Besides, there weren't too many compound curves, and apart from a rudder the size of a postage stamp, the areas and moments looked reasonably good. When I found a three-view in the magazine, I decided to build the airplane.
In the version presented here, the rudder is enlarged about 250% (it really was the size of a postage stamp!), the horizontal stabilizer by about thirty percent, and the dihedral was essentially doubled. On the real ship, the thickness of the wing also tapered from the point where the struts attach to the root of the wing.
Construction is straightforward for anyone who has ever built a Peanut. It is a low- wing, and although the Avia flies fine, it's not an airplane I'd recommend for a rank beginner
