ParkBipe - Depron Biplane

Here is my latest creation.

Span: ~ 33.5"
AUW: 505g (~ 18oz)
Wing Area: 378 In^2
Wing Loading: 6.8 oz/ft^2
Power System: HIMAX 2212-0850, JETI Advance 18-3P, Tanic 3S 1550mah, GWS 9x7 prop
Draws about 10.5A at full throttle.

Made of 6mm depron and some ply. Has a Trike gear (Yes, I know it's unusual for a biplane ) which makes it easier to handle on a short slightly windy landing strip.

Had a few very nice flights, some of which tackled wind of about 10 - 15 mph

Here is a link to a flight video. Camera man missed the first landing, so we had another run for shooting the landing. Enjoy.

If any one is interested, plans will follow soon.
