Sawn Craft Paper Airplane (Not Really Paper)

Greetings All,

Just thought I would post a couple of videos of a rather "out of the ordinary" kit available from Sawn Craft...

How does a 4 ft long, 24" WS foam model of a "Paper Airplane" sound...

Finally got to maiden this plane yesterday and had a blast with it...

Pics and Videos below...

Will post more details if there is any interest...

Awesome, I just ordered one of these (my first foamy), looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for the videos, you really show off the flight envelope nicely. If you have any build pics, that would be great, too.

Was thinking of adding a rudder and I'll probably use an Orange stabilizing receiver too, that might help in a light breeze, especially at high alpha, low speed flight. In the video, it seems to really want to roll and lose altitude when turning, so using a rudder for more flat turns should make for an interesting experiment.

It floats so easily, at 600 square inches, I think I might be able to catch a thermal!

Sorry no build pics, but it does come with a build manual, and it is a pretty straight forward build...


So far I have resisted the urge to install a rudder, but pretty sure that is gonna happen, but plan ahead getting the CG right on this one is important and the tail is a long way from the CG point so gonna have to shift weight forward or my favorite solution use a bigger battery ...
