Depron Bonanza!

I have finally gotten some time to get back to this projecthttp://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=989 This build log will be dedicated to the build of two different depron versions of this model. One will have a larger WS of maybe 20" and the other will have a wingspan of 11 1/2".

The bigger one will use the APO5 5 gram HK motor. The original was so fast it was almost uncontrollable. I routinely crashed it. I like the idea of a speedy model so the bigger one will be faster. I think I will go for sub 50 grams with this model.

The smaller model will be an ultralight sub 20 grams. I will use a brushed motor and actuators. The wings, airframe, and tail will be skeletonized and covered with Mylar. I will use a 1s 50mAH or less battery.

Here is a picture of the sub airframe I have been using. I plan to redo this in foam and carbon fiber
