Smove from Manuel Nubel
Well I threw together a "Smove" from Manuel Nubel. The plans came out last week and it looks pretty good. It has sort of stationary speed brake struts. :D

why the heck to you have the struts like that??????? :confused: :confused: :eek: looks good though :cool:

It looks like it was to slow down "downlines" and I guess generally control speed . Maybe for the F3B schedule????? :D

Also looks like it helps keep both wings from moving side to side.

Cool. I see a biplane in my future.
The plans are available for download at http://www.slope-combat.de/shop/.

whats the WS on this beauty? I see that it looks like you are using a LittleScreemer on it.
I wonder how a CustomCDR would work... i'm sure it will ROCK with it!

Permanently deployed "airbrakes" on Martin Müller's TwinSai 2 for improved "constant speed flying".

I don't get it............ I would say your flight time would be cut down alot with those

#10 j_z_123 Dec 19, 2005 04:58 PM

It's not about flight time. It's about constant precision and speed throughout the pattern.

#11 bamm Dec 19, 2005 05:04 PM

oh ok. soo... these are good for comp then..... hmmmm i'm gunna have to try this out! lol

I tried the first flights on the Smove outside at dusk today. This thing really grooves and really has a nice slooooowwww flight. High alpha knife edge is graceful and smoooth. Feels much better than my F3A shocky. Feels closer to a pattern plane than any other flat foamie that I've tried. If you like the Knuffle you will like this one, just keep the weight down. My .02.

Char :D

Forgot to add; The nose is hand cut EPP and makes a huge improvement. One of the elevator pull-pull lines came loose and the Smove went nose in with no damage. The other benefit seems to be in quieting down motor noise transmitted through the airframe. ;)
