My latest project! Worked about 4-5 hours on it today (came at around 2:45, finished working at around 8:15... with a supper break, of course )

Drying outside (lots of Welder's glue to dry and it SMELLS inside - I got a lecture from my mom for using it inside the house...)



What's left to do:

-Install motor, ESC, RX, and battery
-Route aileron and rudder pushrods

Hey Everybody,

Well over the past few days I made a new goal for myself: gain 50 subscribers for my YouTube channel by the end of the summer.

I posted this here and only here when I was at about at 37 - instantly overnight I hit 41! only 10 more would exceed my goal for the entire summer!

Thanks for the support and interest in the RC Foam Show (RCFS) guys - the Crack Yak videos will be coming as soon as possible!

RCFS#12: Cardboard DLG Design!

RCFS#12: Cardboard DLG Design! (1 min 21 sec)


Episode 12 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

My design for a cardboard DLG. It flies OK when I did the "dry" test (no electronics), however it takes too much front weight to get it to fly right. This makes it too heavy for a DLG anyways, so this one is not going to be flown. I may still work on it though.

RCFS#10: The Pink Foam HK Bonsai DLG FLIES!!!!! (2 min 17 sec)


Episode 10 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

Yes, on that last clip the battery did come out of the velcro strap and was hanging from the plane. Sorry about the minimal flight footage, it's super hot out today so flying conditions weren't perfect. The plane does a roll before it actually starts flying (when I first launch it). I think that it's pretty cool how it does that... I'll work on the plane to see if I can get it to launch and fly longer.
