Norman!

Well, here is Norman! He's about 50" span, all EPP, with only elevator, rudder, throttle. I put a bomb drop door on it and we drop black and white easter eggs with streamers from him. We call them "Cow balls".

Everyone who flys Norman falls in love. I need to cut about a dozen more of them. Just hard to find the time.

Enjoy!

Laine.

Norman RULES!!! I love it, Laine.

Per our chat Monday night, I think I have worked out the details of "Operation Audible Terror." Construction of the prototype begins tonight...

Norman?

From the front view... I think you should call him "Thomas the Cow Plane" that way you could get into the Thomas the tank engine market.. and this would just be one of "Thomas's little friends"..... since he has a bomb drop.. Thomas could say...
"Say hello to my little friend"... get it? ha ha haaaaaa.... Boom!
Video of Norman the cow plane would be nice when you get a chance...

Bo

P.S. I like it ...

Yeah, one day I plan to cut a few more of them on the CNC. They are too cool not to. I suppose if enough people wanted one it might motivate me a bit more.

LOL, no, I suppose you dont need to Tim.

As for the power system, heck man, I dont remember. Its some cheapy motor I had laying around that I won somewhere with a Castle Thunderbird 18 behind it.

IIRC its a 900kv outrunner with a 10x4.7 on a 3S 1800. Not "overpowered" by any stretch. Just enough to fly good.

"The obvious" was in reply to Laine saying that if a few more people express interest, he would cut some more Normans. Laine and I had a chat on the phone Monday night about Norman, and I was merely reminding him of my interest, in an attempt to motivate him to cut a few.

Either that, or it was code for "I got an idea, hold my beer"

What's Wrong

Dude!... What's wrong with you... get motivated and cut out a few kits... so the obvious does'nt have to be stated like that so often.... Stating the obvious is = to saying "Lord Voldemort" rather than "he who shall not be named".

Come on!..

Im in the shop today cutting planes on the CNC. However, I have not cut any Normans yet. I can cut Normans wing and tail on the CNC, but the fuse sides have to be hand cut. I'll need to make a template for him.

Today I am getting some Little Cuda's cut. The Little Cuda is my 24" Forward Swept combat plane.
