This Peanut Scale model of the radial engined version of the Laird LC-DE biplane was scaled up from Robert Hirsch's excellent scale drawings. It makes a very interesting little model of a classic airplane, and although it will not get higher durations than a Fike or a Lacey, it does fly very stably in smooth, clean circles. Best duration indoors so far is 35 seconds.
The model is very conventional, so there will not be a put Part A against Part B type of article here, rather, specific details will be considered. It is assumed that a modeler who decides to build this knows how to read plans and how to build balsa structures over a plan.
