Cool
Depron TROLL

Hey gang,

Here is a video of my Troll !
My bud Earl only showed up with one plane and he wanted to fly it... I felt sorry for him so I let him have a stab at it ... he did quite well.
He was grinnin from ear to ear afterwards
(I can fly her just as good)

Enjoy,
Jim

This model should be marketed since it is the best 3D flyer I have ever seen!

The modeler has out did himself on this one and I have had the pleasure to watch him fly this bipe and Wow! Nice slow passes in front of you and control rolls then, you kick the throttle and up she goes without too much fuss.

I think Jim has a link to the plans but, I sure wished someone out there sold these!

Great Job Jim!

Beautiful construction- that's probably the prettiest depron bird I've yet seen. Nice work!

I had intended to do a build thread on the Troll, but all the pics I took of the entire process while building are trapped on my old Hard drive which will not spin up.
If I ever find someone who can recover my data without charging me an arm & a leg, I WILL do the thread.
I am really suprised that this model didn't garner more attention, as this baby is the best flying little Pattern / 3-D bipe out there !
I sized mine up a tad to 31.5" span and 36" length and used 6mm Depron for everything except the fuselage sides. I also put a small CF tube in the bottom wing to support my Hi-G flying style !

Here is the Spillmann site

Click on the Tips and Tricks link on the right side under "General"

Here is a direct link to the tiled .pdf
http://www.amjd.ch/telechargement/trollpdf.zip

Here is the link to translated version of build instructions for refrence:
http://translate.google.com/translat...language_tools

You need to have a little foam building experience under your belt to understand the instructions.
But it is worth the hassel. Of ALL my planes, this one is my PURE FUN flyer and it will do it ALL.

Give it a stab,
Jim

Hi

you can find the plan and an article with pictures to build the Troll under www.amjd.ch (my club's website, under reportages ---> présentations de modèles et plans ---> Troll ----> construction). Here are some pictures of this incredible airplane that we fly since one year yet. There are videos on our website too.

Here is the Troll I did build last year. Nice to see that the color scheme has success! Or is it a coincidence?

Also see this page, if you want to build one (in french): http://www.amjd.ch/
You'll find a great presentation of the Troll and a complete building note.

Wish you happy flys with your Trolls!

jhoffmeyer,

No, it is not a coincidence at all. After viewing ALL of the photos I could find, I just LOVED your scheme !
All at the field are very impressed with her.
Still don't understand why it hasn't "caught on" here in the states.

Wanna make a gazillion bucks ??? PRODUCE A KIT !!!

Love it,
Jim
