Your Icarus is looking fantastic, like you my build has been stagnant for some time. Now that our move and generally our lives have finally settled I can now get back into building.

You are definitely well ahead of me for the time being. I look forward to more posts.

Hello Steve,
Hope you catch up again soonest! Its a lovely plane to build and brings a lot of satisfaction! Unfortunately I was a bit distracted lately with the build of a f5j plane. But more to come for sure!

Hello together,

I just started to build an Ikarus. What I miss is a CG.

Would be quiet intressting, because I think to build in a FES and try to calculate if its possible.

106mm from leading edge is recommended, but I would push that back to perhaps 110 to start.

Very nice movie! That brings good inspiration to continue the build again! Anyone already flying the Ikarus from Jilles?

I can't find measurements for the ruder. What is recommended how far should the ruder can move to each side?

Hi, I think 30 degrees in both directions would be enough!
