Paul Aubert's "Grasshopper
This is a simple little peanut scale model. The original airplane had a very square fuselage and a large horizontal tail. It seemed like a good design for a model that could be expected to fly with scale tail surfaces. It was built with a sheet balsa fuselage and sheet balsa tail surfaces to simplify construction only the wings are of built up stick-and- tissue. The only intentional deviation from exact scale was an increase in dihedral angle ... the real plane had no observable dihedral.
