Trainer Bee

DMorris Design's Trainer Bee

This is my latest design - Trainer Bee. It's based on my 50% Lazy Bee but I increased the wingspan by 4" to 24" and added 1" to the nose and 2" to the tail to increase the moment arms a bit and make it fly smoother. It still is a 3-channel plane (throttle, rudder and elevator) and I have reduced the size of the movable surfaces to make it less twitchy. Also the rudder is conventional now with a fin and rudder, instead of the one-piece flying rudder. Enjoy!

Terms of Service.
Please read the Plans Printing Service Terms of Use before placing an order.

What are you ordering:

You are ordering a print from the main PDF file in this listing, it´s exactly like taking this file in a thumb drive to a local print shop and ask them to make a print.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.
In doubt please ask us for an opinion.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale this plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.

You will receive:

  • Laser Printed plan on good quality Bond paper or/and Tracing Paper and/or Polyester sheet of the PDF file from this listing, depending on what you have purchased.
  • Rolled sheets, up to 5 in the same cardboard tube.
  • Envelope, up to 5 sheets per envelope.
  • Articles and Instructions if they are available and if you order them.
  • Air Mail, Priority, Priority Insured or Normal mail, according to your choice.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ and Canon printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and waterproof.

About the different media types:

Bond Paper: White Bond paper, 80 grams per square meter.
Bond Tracing paper: Bond Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester film: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).


We charge by print length (914mm or 91,4cm or 36in. by the length of the print)
This means that a plan 120cm by 150cm will be charged two times 150cm because it will be printed in two tiles, a plan 91cm by 150cm will be charged one time its length or 150cm and a plan 91cm by 40cm will be charged 40cm.
The system will try to fit a plan in the 91,4cm of the printer width in order to reduce the costs or print length to the maximum. This is the same charging method used in any printshop.


We will use paper or waxed paper padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans, depending on your choice.


We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.

New Photos DMorrisPE on 10/11/2017 04:26
I have added 4 photos of the completed prototype. It has a Breast Cancer Awareness trim scheme to honor my wife's battle and victory over invasive ductal carcinoma. She was diagnosed in October 2016, has endured 6 rounds of very strong chemo, will finish the last rounds of Herceptin in December 2017. Chemo shrank the tumor, then surgery removed it, and DIEP-flap reconstruction restored them. Her hair is regrowing and her strength is returning. She has had a rough 14 months, but the worst is over. God's Grace is on time, every time.
Thank you Jennifer on 14/11/2019 20:01
Love the design, will build it soon.
Thanks for sharing the plans and your wife story. I hope you do well.
