Thanks Red, I'd thought of that, but want to keep it legal if possible.
I've had a software copyright lifted from me in the past.( or at least the
royalties, paltry though they'ed have been) I built several back then,
including ailerons with no dihedral. I don't remember the incidence, but
hopefully I'll have the kit in hand soon.

Just do your redesign and call it the E-Ray. They were a fine flying model.
Take out a lot of the dihedral if you are going to add ailerons, and check
the incidence, set it nearly 0 - 0. I don't recall what it was on the
original, but if it is like a lot of planes of that era it had way to much
for today's power and weights.

When I first started flying in the 70's, the Andrews H-Ray was my club's
trainer of choice.
I just picked up one on eBay, and I'm thinking of redesigning it for
electric(mainly lightening it, and making it a taildragger, ailerons
Does anyone know who, if anyone owns the rights to the AAMCO line? I'd
like to make the plans available if and when I get it done.
