The new 55" span Quaker Flash design was based on the old 30" R/N kit, enlarged and restructured to produce a light, competitive Old Timer that's true in outline. The only deviation from the original R/N design was to incorporate the Dalaire Sportster airfoil into the new wing. What came of it all is a 12.2 oz. model that will fly beautifully on a low cost Outrunner, 2 cell drive system and 3 ch. R/C using two sub-micro servos.
The Quaker Specs out as follows;
Wing Span- 55" Area- 400 Sq. In. Flying Weight- 13 oz. Wing Loading- 4.5 oz. / sq. ft. Length- 37.2" Power Loading- 60 Watts/ lb.
Power System- 2208/17 (1100 KV) Brushless Outrunner motor available from http://lightflightrc.com/ w/ a 10 amp ESC w/ BEC, a 9-4.7 Prop and a Thunderpower 1320 mah 2S Lipoly Battery.
Guidance System- 3 ch. control is provided by 2, Sub-Micro Servos to control the rudder and elevator with a Spektrum AR-6000 Rx.
The Short Kit includes (only); 2, 36" X 48" highly detailed plans sheets which includes parts I. D. additional materials list, and lots of building notes. Also included are 7 laser cut balsa sheets, and 1 laser cut plywood sheet.

The two Quakers pictured are P-Types built to proof the Short Kit, and both Fly Beautifully -- Just like a Quaker should. I built the yellow black & red model, and my good friend and Master Modeler George Laskar built the red and silver one.
My Quaker was has also been flown, and proven herself a terrific flyer also.
