Read up on Wild Fred's LamYak series, as that's what the WW20cc, WW30cc, WW50cc, and WW-holy-crap-thats-a-big-profile are based on. Great flyers, and easy as pie to convert to (or build for) electric. WWRC 50cc LamSuk - Flight #2 - YouTube

Sorry for the hijack... Nice work on the rehab!

Reggie-

Let's get out of the OP's Katana rehab... Go to the ProBro site and search for "WW50cc LamSuk" to see mine (the one in the vid above) and look for a build thread about "The Reaper"... Click did an 80cc+ size version of this plane in electric, and there's one other laminar-winged giant out there that I'm aware of.

The WW20cc LamBach that joebob has for sale is a slightly smaller version of my Beavers and Ducks plane from the video. If you don't want to build from a kit, I strongly recommend joebob's WW20cc. It flies just as big and floaty as the really big ones, at about 25% of the cost. The last good WW50cc I saw up for sale ended up selling for well over $2500.

Last bit of advice for now... if you're looking for a profile - especially one that flies like the vid above - stick to the ProBro forum... you'll get quite an education. You can always link to threads here or info about planes wherever you find it, but hijacking someone's thread to go way off their original topic is considered "bad form" around here, while it's tolerated and even encouraged over there! ;-)
