Another over weight NB I am afraid ( bit like me) but thanks goldguy for the great design and thanks Dave Reap for the link to this thread.

No epp no depron other than burger boxes (that will do for the rudder)

Wheels hummm 1" hole saw through a scrap piece of upvc door

Tyres slice off two bits of pipe insulation and shape to suit

UC those old bike spokes will do

Fuse/wings..... didn't I have some soft (swim noodle like) under floor sheet foam (yelofon hd10) here somwhere?

This foam warps a bit brace it like goldguy but with garden strimmer line yup that will work plus a couple of pieces of 2mm cf one front and back

hinge the elevator with hot glue

Horns .....shape them from bits of upvc

Well heavy @about 13 oz but indestructable

It will hover and still a fun plane my grandson and I tested it am today before the clouds opened up and it poured with rain

Needs a bit of cog adujustment (very sensititve to this )but no time today here is the result

I love makng stuff ,out of stuff you should not make stuff out of

1500 blue wonder 9046 slowfly prop 900mah 2s generous 5 degree down thrust

Thanks again goldguy and Dave

This is the maiden, first time it had power in anger straight out of the back of the car slapped on the batery balanced it on my fingers at 6" and put it on the ground
