Series / PD-04 Heinkel P-1077 (Laser
Designed by Bruce Finley, the P-1077 was the winner of the 2004 FAC
Walt Mooney Award. This 13" wingspan peanut scale model has a
large wing area and plenty of room in the fuselage for the motor.
Historically, work on the P-1077, also known as the Julia II, started
in 1944. Two unpowered prototypes were 90% complete when the German
plant was overrun by Soviet troops.
This kit is one of a new class of kits we call Pro Design. These
kits are for the serious competitor who wants to build a winning
plane without the hassle of working from scratch. The
builder has the option of making one of the other two versions,
the Julia or the Romeo. This model can be built for rubber power
or catapult flight.
This kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, building
and flying instructions, hand-picked competition weight laser
cut balsa parts and balsa
strip wood, FAI rubber, vacuum-molded canopy, skids and gun pods,
propeller, EBM thrust bearing, Easy Built Lite
tissue in olive green, evergreen, and light sky blue and TissueCal™ markings.
You will need a hobby
knife, fine sandpaper, building
board, and glue. If applicable,
you will also need a catapult and accessories.

"Well out to the field today to give the P-1077 a go. First tried with one loop of 3/16" and all it did was flop to the ground. (Turned out a bit heavy). So I used two loops of 1/8" that I had. (It was a short motor, only the length of the fuselage.) Anyways flies pretty good with the extra power, fairly tight right circle, must be a warp in it somewhere. Not long flights but fairly stable. It rocks a bit in roll at first but steadies out. Got to get a proper motor in it. Good way to finish the year. Happy New Year to both of you!" - John Majane
