1/2A Texaco Tatone Atomizer I
Construction photos of the Atomizer as you requested. It's built from a Spirit of Yesteryear kit. Included is a photo of the rudder with it's 2-56 screw tiller. The rudder will be glued to the stab and the 2- 56 screw can be installed after the removable stab is screw to the fuselage with 4-40 nylon screws. To allow the the stab to be removed, unscrew the 2-56 screw tiller.
Construction weight with battery, radio, servos, and engine with an APC 8x6E prop is 12 ounces.
The wing area is 278 square inches. Do your math and you will come up with a flying weight for 1/2 A Texaco is 15.4 ounces.
After covering I hope it will weigh 16 ounces.
