That was last years video. It was there again this year and even made the Flite Test SEFF compilation

F&T,

Do you have any dimensions or drawings of the Fuselage, I would like to start a build. Maybe some rough dimensions and close up pictures of win, booms and main fuselage would be a start.

Also, your wing looks like you have a KF2 style design for what I and see and it straps to the top of the main structure which has the booms and main fuselage all attached in one section. Is that correct?

The carbon reinforcement you have used, can you give some info on what and where?

Thank you, great project as I love Tricpote'rs, have built a few and would love something that converts to a plane.

Regards, JosephR....

Hello F&T,

Another question did you base your design on the SU-80? Looks similar although your booms look longer, just trying to work out some dimensions.

Regards, JosephR

The FliteTest website has recent information about the design and it looks like we might see some build information soon.....I want to build it if it becomes available too.

Hello Coreman,

Thank you for the link, I have already seen this and had a good look.

Would like to build something but need some dimensions to get stated, even a wing length of body length, that way can scale the rest from the pictures of the plane.

Do you have any information?

Regards......JosephR.

Coreman,

Thank you for your reply, yes shame cannot get any response from Peter (Foam and Tape) on a bit of information about this project as it is a good one which I would like to build.

If anyone else has any information, I would really like the help. I notice that arjankooger has started work on building something, do you have any measurements to share?

Thank you,...........JosephR.

Hello Joseph, here's another YouTube link in case you haven't already seen it. If you can view enough images you might be able to scale some measurements. Check out the shoes.

It looks to me like the fuselage is based on one of his twin designs. I think it might be the last one on this page:

Foam and Tape - Update

Hello Foam and Tape,

Are there any updates to this project?

Have you decided to do some plans or is this great design going to die a death?

Would like to know............Thank you, JosephR.
