Construction of the saucer is as different as its final shape. You'll need a dozen 3/32 x 3 sheets of balsa. Using the full size plan as a guide, pre‑cut as many sheets as required to roughly form a 22 inch diameter disc.
The flying saucer, "Killer," was originally designed to be a new approach to fast combat. After many enjoyable flights with "Killer", I found that, although it is as fast as any other combat bird, it won't turn quite as tightly as the more conventional wing/boom layout. However, the saucer never fails to attract a lot of interest among both spectators and other modelers, so I feel this makes up for its "in the groove" flight characteristics Please don't interpret what I've said to mean that "Killer" is anything but a capable combat machine. It is really fun to fly, and would also make a fine, attention‑getting sport flier with a .19 or .29 engine.
