This will be my winter project.

It's a wing pusher with a V tail and a mid motor mounted.
It will have a shaft extension prop to make it easier to balance HOPE .

P.S.: for those interested I added the zipped file of the model for the RCDP simulator.

I found this little glider into a french fries package, so I decided to make a plan for it.

I found this free plan on parkflyer magazine and realized the model for the RCDP. I mod it to be used as a seaplane.

Still waiting for the pond in RD Desk Pilot simulator. Davy (the author) promised the future release with the next update.

This is a beauty model designed by Todd Long. A while back I downloaded the plan from RC MicroFlight magazine. Now it is hard to find on the web.

There are two versions for this indoor/park flier, the conventional and the V tail.

Cheers.

These are most of the tables, and charts I usually use to build my planes. There are some articles too.
Most of them come from browsing the web, I'm not the author.
They were on my hard disk. At the moment I cannot find their link.
Credit goes to their authors.
From time to time I'll update the list.

The Hydro PEPSI by Frankyfly for RC Desk Pilot simulator..wmv (1 min 34 sec)

I have modeled these two famous hydro planes for RCDP from plans coming from the scratch builder forum.
They are both good flyers. The hydro PIZZA looks like more tame.

A lot of good info here about the GPW hydro PIZZA. Plans are here.

This is the thread for the Leadefeather's AQUARIUS.


If you want, give them a try, and let me know what you like most.

These are the new files.

Trim them with the editor if you don't like how they fly.

Let me know if there's something to change.

Your suggestions are well come.

TIA

Few more model planes to add to the RCDP simulator.

They all fly well, but the best one for me is the delta SPORT STEALTH by GPW.

One more plane for the simulator ....


I'm really having fun using Google SketchUp plus RCDP sim.

This is a homage to GPW a master plane designer.

Using Google SketchUp, you cam make any model you like and flight/TEST with this great SIM

These are my first few model, more to come for sure. Check back frequently.

If you want know more about the simulator this is the link.

And here you'll find a lot more info about the program.

Those of you using this camera know about its Achilles' heel.

So reading through different posts I decided to remove the "crap" battery and connect the camera straight to the receiver.

To do this I made an extension cord using a servo wire and soldering to it the connector I removed from the old battery.

This modification is easy to do. Now camera works flawlessly.

For my last MINIMALIST BIPE I built the VANESSA machine to locate its CoG.

This tool is easy to make. If you cannot use the toss test mode to balance your model this handy tool will solve the problem.

Here is the LinK http://home.mindspring.com/~the-plum...%20Machine.htm to build you own.
