Well sort of.. does a tree count? Wanted to find out what would break this foamy and the gr-35 at around 700 watts and some agressive flying did it,the plane will hold up fine probally on 350-400 watts and normal 3D flying.

I must of got 8 flights in since saturday.. thats a lot for me. The flyings off to a good start this year and hopefully i'll fly more and progress more than i did last year. On vacation so i might as well get the flying in while i can,the techonehobby pulama got another backyard flight today and i took my scratchbuilt(GRX-V1) to show a buddy and got video of that as well.. its funny when he see's me fly because he's not into rc and always seems to be amazed at the amount of power rc planes have .

Got a couple flights in the other day with it,some have expressed intrest in making plans for the scratch builders out there. If anybody transfers the plane to plans i'll post them here. Looking into getting betas to locals in exchange for pdf's or other plans for it or supply the foam and i can cut a couple out and make a hardware list to complete one and some rough instructions and set up info etc.

Specs:
48'' wingspan
51'' long
4 hs 65mg servos
Reaper GR-35
Ab 60 esc
zippy flightmax 4s 2200 20c
12x6 apc
Ar 7000
Auw 34 oz on 4s.. would fly even lighter on 3s 2200s as well.

I just cant get into building scratch built jets.. there cool but im more into 3d planes,eventually i'll finish up the delta i started. I cut this one out over the weekend and think i'll have a lot more fun with it . Its 51'' long with a 48'' wingspan,i didnt do much building over the winter so now im catching up while we all wait for the new plane releases to come in. Should have it ready to maiden tomorrow if the weather agrees .

Cut the final wing.. decided im going with a delta. Decided on a semi full fuselage design as well with some lines etc sharpied on to give it more depth.. im more of a form versus fasion kind of guy and its around $10.00 to do one of these airframes and id like to get them done in the least amount of time and flying.. then i can jazz them up a bit more later .

Playin around with design a little tonight,took less than an hour. Canards stall very well and have excellent aerobatic ability... some thrust vectoring would be cool to(maybe on the next one) . Deltas have very good flight qaulitys as well.. could get away with a two servo set up with elevons or use three like on the first one and have rudder to if i go delta wing. This ones gonna take a couple nights(lots of sanding to shape and contour the fuselage) . Once i have some nice shape to it i'll mock up some more wings and go from there for the final set up. Its 48'' long with about a 36'' wingspan for the mock up.

Cut this out of owens pink half inch foam yesterday. Went pretty well for my first pusher style jet (so far) took a couple hours from design to whats in the pics.

Specs so far for the airframe.. 52'' long with 55'' wingspan and around 14 oz. I'll get better pics soon when i try some cg glide tests... i used a pattern style wing so it shouldnt be to difficult to ballpark the cg.. next ones i do will be a different style wing and fuselage but i wanted to start simple.. never flew a pusher plane before and this style is more of a trainer .


Update: Added to the nose,did this while i was on the phone today (some people call at the weirdest times ),got the reaper gr 35 in it with an 11x7. Maybe later today i'll install servos. Should have it ready for a maiden next weekend or maybe today if it doesnt stop raining.

Currently this is my biggest rc investment . Flys really well.. so much better than the 450 size(bigger flys better). Was pretty windy out but ive only flown it once this year and wated to fly it with the new hitec titanium gear servos i got for it(servos are much better than the ds821s)and i dont have to worry about doing flips and rolls etc now so i took it up high to get a feel for it with the new servos,cant wait for a calm day to bring it a little lower .

With the weather warming up its time to start flying regularly again.... once a month or less during the winter is rough and i need all the practice i can get. Didnt do much flying over the winter and didnt do any foam designs either . Time to start catching up again,tried out a couple things with the slick a few days ago. Need to order more packs.. two packs on the weekend just isnt enough flying and i have some foam designs i wanna do in 48'' or larger sizes,for years been wanting to do a 3d pusher jet so i might do one of those and a 3d plane and maybe a pattern plane.. bluecores cheap,done with depron(to expensive). Heres some video of the slick with a light power setup and a pull pull elevator.

It was nice to fly today,put 2 packs through the slick and fired up the chainsaw and cut some wood and got the grill going for some steaks when i got home . Did a little spring cleaning outside to.. its nice when temps are close to 60 degrees but flying the slick was the highlight to this weekend.. ive grilled in single digit temps throughout the winter but flying this winter has been slim to none. Hooray for spring .
