Help Pick Model Builder’s Next Project

Readers can help select frequent Model Aviation contributor Derek Micko’s next construction project. The model will be a park flyer with a wingspan between 30 and 34 inches.

It will be similar in construction and covering to the other models in his park flyer series. Marc Stermer, from Rabid Models, will offer additional details for the model as applicable (3D-printed spinners, wheels, landing gear covers, etc.).

Depending on the aircraft chosen by the readers, the model will feature either plug-in landing gear, retracts, or both. Manzano Laser will offer a short kit should the builder choose not to cut their own parts.
