After suffering a bitter disappointment with the Hobby King Durafly Storch I decided to design and build my own in depron. I will not be able to match the stunning finish of the Durafly version but I dammed sure I can improve on it`s piss poor performance. I found the Durafly to be to fast to heavy and would tipstall at low speed and landing. I also heard from a friend that his Vmark Storch also suffered with tipstall. This is a trait you certainly don`t want from a plane that was capable of hovering in a light breeze. I came to the conclusion that the fixed slats did nothing to improve the slow flying capabilities of a model of this size and have purposely omitted them, preferring to opt for undercambered wing tips to alleviate the tendency to tipstall. I started this project in August 2017 and when it came to covering the wings with brown paper I sort of lost heart. Anyhoo I covered the wing earlier in the year 2018 and after another loss of interest in building I started with the project again a few days ago. I don`t know about you but I get burned out with building and when I hit a small hicup I tend to abandon some projects or find something that I feel the need to build before finishing the current project. I have decided to persevere but only doing a little at a time.
