Crunchie Planks
 
14 Attachment(s)
I recently have had a growing interest in crunchie planks:eek:
Maybe it has to do with my new Poky 40 or the new Windburners that have recently landed in so-cal:cool: Sure wish I had one:(

Anyway here are some pic's of the planks I could come up with and if you have a favorite crunchie plank please post a pic and comment:)

I need more planks in my Quiver.

There are some nice ones! Cool pics nick!

A Warhead 60" would be interesting to try out. Still waiting for the JDub along with everyone else :)

I like the WindBurner, (only compo-plank I've flown), looking forward to trying it out at Weldons big air nice landing zone...

For the designers... It would be really nice if we could have an air brake. Perhaps like the Space Shuttles splitting vertical stablizer.

Always liked the idea of the crow setup by Big Gas on a JW.

Atomic Wedgie
 
I have seen the little Atomic Wedgie fly. Very fast!

My own homebrew moulded plank is at primer stage. Some pics on my blog. I'll put up some pictures here when I get it painted.
The vac bagged prototype flies very well.

Jim.

I like them because I'm getting too lazy to build foam. I'm still dreaming of an injection molded plank or chevron. I think the Hummer is a foamy

Here's another cool Aussie plank, made by Shane:

PS The Hummer's not crunchy, except for the elevons.

Here is my Tonka, its around 80ozs with an underslung taped on wing. Have test flown it a couple of times but still waiting for the right conditions to ds it. Wing tips are screwed on, to allow for experimenting with tip ballast. Experimental sections, and bangs a turn like nothing I have flown before so should ds well when I finally get to the right place at the right time.

Whoa. Lots of cool planks. Who makes which one, and are there plans available?

Fine looking plank!

That's a fine looking plank Rick! I like four servos too. It allows a range of mixing options. What's the airfoil?

Jim.

CRunchy plANKS = CRANKS :confused:

Some really nice planes here, one day I'll get around to building another glass plank, along with everything else <sigh>.
