THIS is the sixth development in a particular series, the main improvements over earlier versions being structural, and an increase of tailplane chord.
The most potent 3.5 c.c. engine will not prove too powerful for it and the ideal is probably a " 19 " glowplug motor, by using which the flying weight can be taken down to 14 Oz. The original Beatnik weighed 16 1/2 oz. with a modified Oliver, and using over-hard balsa all round. The only hard balsa needed is that used for the fuselage longerons.
The plan contains ample information for an average person to complete Beatnik, the following general constructional notes will prove of interest.
