Biplane control line
 
Any one knows of a BiPlane control line kit or Plan that I can model after? I'm trying to teach the juniors with something new. What I did was make the basic(1wing) biplane seems cool.

You could try searching the CL Plans thread for bipe and biplane.

There are some bipe plans there. See if you find anything you like.

Teddy, what (engine) size of biplane are you looking for? Built-up wings or flat sheet?

Lil Toot for .049, and a 38 special for a .40 if the kids are good flyers. Kits are available, Arf on the 38 spec.

Here are 3 more bipes that you missed from Black Hawk Models:
Night Hawk .049 to .10
Sig SPAD 7 .19 to .35
Sig Fokker D-7 .19 to .35

And Sig has a .049 plane too.

Which one would fly the best?

#9 Teddy Ong Jan 12, 2013 06:13 PM

Wow thanks. I'm actually looking for electric, but I think building it will be a good lesson too.
Thanks for the resources

Electric Bipe
 
The bipe in the attachment is made from 3mm depron foam, and powered by commonly available GWS electrics.

"Best" is one of the words least useful for accurate communication. There's far too much subjective content involved. The 38 Special, however, is VERY special in the opinions of large numbers of modelers.

Get a BYSLOB by far super fun to fly

#13 RknRusty Jan 19, 2013 11:12 PM

What's a BYSLOB?
Google doesn't seem to know.

#14 perttime Jan 20, 2013 05:47 AM

Must mean Bi-Slob.
I think Brodak does kits.
