Just cannot take the heat as in my days of youth and I didn't like it much then either.
Does anyone else have a similar design in a build thread?
I like basic planes,most of what i build from scratch gets cut out in one night. Ive cut out more complicated stuff but it usually would take a week and would be difficult for many to replicate easily unlike most of what i cut out now,eventually i'll put more time into a plane or two and give it a full fuselage and better aesthetics. Might shape a nice fuse for the park jet soon just to give it better looks. Cutting them out quick and working on overall flight performance and maneuverability is primary,looks are secondary. Your more than welcome to replicate the plane and i could take some measurements and info to pass along. CG is rough but close enough to keep a decent pilot from crashing,Ive flown with the cg fore and aft about and inch each way. Not sure if anyone has a similar design,im sure there has to be something similar somewhere out there.. im fairly new to the park jet stuff and im sure theres tons of scratch built deltas out there. Heres the main thread for the GRX with plans
.. Some liked that plane and someone was nice enough to take the dimensions and turn it into a cad rendering to make plans available for anyone to try and thats where i posted about the park jet. When i finish up the bigger plane i'll build maybe a 40'' wingspan park jet and a 48'' one to probably.
Heres a video of the park jet in its current configuration,went to pick up supplies for a much larger 3d foamie im making and took it with to get a quick flight in with a different power set up.
