EPP Cutlass Park Flyer
 
8 Attachment(s)
This plane was made from all 9mm EPP. 30 " wing span.

One 4mm Carbon tube in wing and 2 small Carbon fiber cross braces on bottom of the wing. Komodo 17 turn motor, Thunderbird 9, 3-cell 700 Etec and 2 hs-55 servos. 7.7 ozs. with Battery.
I have test flown it already. Flys great slow and fast with good roll rate.
Will have videos after this rain stops.

Adapted from a design by Ken Hill at acesim.com.

Any chance of a plan?

I someone working on a plan for the Cutlass. Flew the Cutlass today also. Flys great fast , quick turns and slows down to catch it by hand....

I like how slow this plane flies. It looks half flying wing/half delta. What are the measurements? I'd be very interested in plans, too. Thanks.

30" wingspan with 23" in length. Alll 9mm EPP from Slofly.
Look closer at the pictures should be easy to build one, The shape is not that criticle.

#12 Rusty-Gunn Jun 26, 2007 11:35 PM

Thank you. Where might the CG be?

How did you make the wing? The 9mm EPP I got from Slofly is 35 by 11 3/4.
