Andy Clancy has developed a 29" span, 270 sq in quick-build Bee for busy, or first-time builders. It's called the Yard Bee, because it flies like the Lazy Bee, but it is the right size for backyard & schoolyard flying.
The Yard Bee builds fast enough even for you ARF guys to complete!! Fly it fast or slow—set it up mild and forgiving—or wild and snappy. All standard propulsion types will work with this plane! The Yard Bee is light enough for indoor electric motors and strong enough for Speed 400 or .020 Astro Flight motors. It weighs only 14 oz with a Speed 400 using eight 500 mAh cells. The Yard Bee also works well with glow engines from .010 up to .10 in size. With a Cox .049, the Yard Bee weighs just 9 oz. CO2 power is also an option! We used and recommend the GM 300 CO2 engine.
For those who are teaching themselves to fly, we suggest flying this plane as a glider. As a glider, she is so light in weight that she will survive many crashes.
The kit is very complete. All wood is high quality, all parts are pre-cut so you don't even need a knife to build it!! Included is most of the hardware and clear Mylar iron-on covering (it's so user-friendly!). Plywood wheels are also included in the kit.
