AERONCA L-3 DEFENDER

The picture above is the Aeronca L-3 defender. I drew this model about 6 years ago. I never did build it but it has been built. Fellow modeler Tim Hooper built this model and here is what he had to say "Downloaded from the net, Roger Wingers design called for a DD S400. I tried this, then changed to a geared 280 unit to save weight. 40" span. AUW 17oz. A summer evening cruiser..."

This was one of the first drawings I ever did and parkflyers were just in their infancy.

Jumping forward 15 years, I thought I should update this drawing and add a bit more detail. More plans will be updated and available in the near future. Download the Defender plans for free and if you build this model, I would love to see a pic of your completed aircraft.
