Engine .09 for low wing .15 for biplane
Here is a project for an "advanced Tenderfoot." The design is patterned after many of the single seat homebuilt airplanes seen today, and resembles many airplanes built in the 1930's. This model is a good basic and intermediate trainer, better looking and bigger than the 049 types (for better performance), but still very easy to build and you have your choice of a low wing monoplane or a biplane. If you build the low wing version it can later be easily converted to a biplane. An 09 is plenty of power; we used the Cox Medallion 09. A 15 can be used in the biplane for even greater performance.
The models proved to be good trainers during the first flight session, held to teach the whole family how to fly‑the first nine attempts resulted in nine full‑bore crashes and the Nifty Novice was still in perfect shape.
