It is a Tee Dee .020. It started out as a .010, but the plane got fuel soaked so I went with the .020. I only put a couple of coats of dope on it, trying to keep it light. It is rudder only ,but I was able to loop it and do barrel rolls. One blip for right and two blips for left. The manufacturer is still here under Great Planes.

The more I looked at it i remember that fully sheeted wing and the problems i had with the ambroid glue. It would have been the first non open rib no silkspan wing i had ever built. Had a cox black widow .049 and i think flight lasted about 10 seconds till plane hit some trees. I had more plane losses with ff than rc when i started Shocked i launched from a bad spot and i think the black widow was probably too heavy for it as well. I was about 10 i think.
