        Question Looking for a Hyper-bipe tester

Looking for a Hyper-bipe tester
I've been really busy making plans for the Hyper-bipe.






The original:


Span: 800mm
Weight empty: about 80 gram
AUW: 180 gram
Wing loading: 12 gr/dmē

If you build it light, indoor flying should be possible.

Now I'm looking for someone who wants to testbuild one.

If you are interested in receiving a free plan and you:
1. Have a spare depron 3mm plate
2. Have succesfully build with depron before
3. Have nothing to do now

Please send me a PM with your emailadress. Please tell me which format or size plan you prefer. (A0 / A4 / letter)

In return for the plan I would like to have your opinion about the plan and plane. Pictures or even video would be great!

I'm thinking about making this plan available for download for a (small) fee, because of the time and effort that I've put into it. I might build one myself soon, but currently lack the necessary free time...

Would not mind giving this a try from sturdyboard, endless supply here. Happen to have all the necessary equipment laying around. Regular 8.5 x 11 tiled would work perfectly for me. Thanks in advance.

Besides building it out of 3mm depron,How about making plans for a larger one for those of us who build out of FFF or EPP(JUST got both in).I would love to build a bigger outdoor version if you make it possible.I have the time,but I dont fly indoor since it rarely snows or gets that cold here in Bham.Great Bipe!I await the results.

Me like. Me want! :)

8.5 x 11 tiled would work nice for me also. I would be more than happy to build one out of FFF. I think that the 31" Span is plently big enough for FFF and outdoor flight on a calm day.

Too Cool! Thanks for (at least) pointing out a neat, unusual subject.

Scale, too... Man that's sweet.

Awsome rendition of the Hyperbipe dude! I have always loved that plane, it would be really cool to build one. I would love to get a set of plans for it. I have a 36" roll plotter at work, so I don't need the printed plans, If you send a copy of the CAD file in DXF format or DWG format, I can print one myself and save you the trouble. You don't need to worry about me passing out free copies of the plans, I will only keep them for my own personal use.

I am sure that you have seen my work before in other threads, so you know the quality of my building and reporting skills.

You can PM me for my Email address if you want to send me one.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Prop-er. Nice plans. I happened to make a 14 inch 2 mm depron HyperBipe recently. I think I got the plans from here but could not figure out which section. Anyway thought I share it here. I am more into smaller planes geared with Dynamics Unlimited gears. So this plane was fixed with a Kenway geared M20 motor with 4 inch blue prop, with RFFS100 rec and a magnetic coil actuator for the rudder. No elevator control was mounted. So just a simple 2 channel ( throttle & rudder ) plane. Flies OK and quite stable outdoors too on calm days even though it is more appropriate to fly indoors. Too bad I have no video to show how it actually flies but I have enjoyed flying this plane so far. So it is a great plane to build and fly !! Cheers.

Hyper Bipe
I've been looking for 3 views of that plane without any luck, so I could build my own. I would like a set of your plans.

Thanks for all your positive replies!!!

Unfortunately I can't make everybody happy.

I've chosen Lucien & Gene as beta testers. You will receive a PM soon.

#11 9LIVES1968 Jan 19, 2006 07:51 PM

As soon as Gene and Lucien build theirs and give their stamps of approval,and then you makes the plans available for what kind of fee are you thinking about anyway?And then Cubber gets his Rastaprint program available for sale,then I will be all set to upsize or downsize the plans as needed(and finally give Gene a break from tiling and resizing too!lol).OK,lets go guys!We are waiting patiently for plans and programs!

Beautiful drawings. 4 pages, 33x46 (and some change). More details to come, as I get going!

So far, no surprises. I forgot how pleasant 3mm depron is to work with. Several pieces make up the fuselage, and so far, the fit is right. I got all the parts cut out, after 3 days out of town, it took a while.

Now to study how I want to brace the wings, and then on with the glue!

Slowly but surely!

I haven't used foam-safe CA in a while, so I decided to try it again. I don't know... Maybe UHU/GWS/Foamhesive would have been better. The kicker helps, but still not as easy as hot glue :)

Bout time I redid mine after I threw a prop and blew it's face off.
