The following photo shows Mike's second Gentle Lady. In Mike's words: "I scratched built my first Gentle Lady in 2008 and experienced approximately 800 learning and enjoyable flights. This Gentle Lady I constructed from a kit purchased at a swap meet about a year ago for $20.00. It was not complete and required some scratch building. Constructed of balsa wood, plywood and covered with ultracote. Powered by a Himax brushless motor with an 11-8 folding prop.  Hitex  HS-55 servos control the rudder and elevator, signals are received through a Futaba R617FS receiver and a Phoenix Lite 50 Castle ESC and powered by a three cell 11.1 volt 2200 mAh Turnigy battery."
