    Here's another Name That Plane for you guys. I'm doing a rebuild on a different plane.

    For a clue, that's a full length 1/4 X 1/8 Spruce spar in the center!

    I believe this one's been around since at least the 70's! Sold by at least 3 different companies.

    Ok, here's the rebuild. I've got an older Butterfly that looks like it had a nitro engine in it for some time, then converted to electric. It was crashed and repaired, not so well, so I cut the tail off, pulled all the equipment, and got started building a new tail. I don't have any building plans for the Butterfly, so I measured every thing and drew up a new set to build on. Here's a few pics of my progress so far.

    I'm also going to have to do some work to the fuselage.

  9. Looks like it has a lot of right thrust

    Agreed! Not sure what engine was on it, But I'm going with the Eflite Power 15. I've read where some have had to add down thrust on these birds.
