  1. Hi Pierre,
    The fuselage is 45mm shorter than that of our Dingos, it's a bit difficult to tell from the 3D views where the difference comes from. Do you know if the tailboom is shorter?
    I have a picture or two of a Stinger prototype...

    Thanks for a fantastic website!

  2. Hello Martin,

    I don't have more info than that. If you have a picture of the Stinger prototype you can send me, it would be great. (pierre.rondel (at) gmail.com)



  3. Hi, looks like the boom is a bit shorter, but the wing has less cord, and so does the tail.

  5. Hi Pierre,
    I just sent you mail, the pictures are fitting to the nature of the depicted prototype. ;-)
    Cheers, Martin
