Sorry for the Delay on the update Guys! So here are some pics of the dual Bipes. As of right now we are pretty close to the waiting stage as I am waiting on the ESC's and Motor's from Hong Kong to arrive. They just left New Jersey today. So a couple changes to the plans. My dad and I both went with the carbon strips on Top and Bottom wings. We found it gave it just as much strength and looked a little better. I also included a little pic of my little man watching Grandpa and Dad build the Bipes!!

Thanks for the update Top. That's a cute and happy "Little Man" you have there. Now we know who really is the Topdawg.

Those bipes are going to look so kool flying in formation.

Keep us in the loop because I think Andy is going to build one now.

Hey Aero, that should be a great plane. Look forward to seeing it.

Yeah my little man has spent a lot of time watching me fly and attempting to fly.

So yeah began building the nitro ea last week. After about 25 hours into it I'm almost done with the wing. Have a few questions obviously trying to do this as light as possible but when it comes to my cg rather than adding weight can I shift the wing accordingly to adjust and also can I mount my elevator in the center of the fuse and willit still have the same flying characteristics? I will post pics of the wing later tonight then I will begin on the fuse!!

Shifting the wing should be fine and accomplish the same results. On the front page is an EA called "inline" (built by inline300, blue and red post#527) that has the elevator in the center of the fuse and he said it fly's great. Looks great as well!

I can't wait to see the pictures on what you've got done!

Hey inline,
Good to hear from you. Doin' any flyin'? My son gave me a 1999 car for my birthday. However, he raided my hanger yesterday and took my original EA, my Ellipso Aero II and my slow stick X but I think I got da best deal in da trade. Fun car to drive, all I need now, at my age, is a gold neckless and diamond ear stud.

We were at the flying field yesterday and had four EA's in the air at the same time. Kinda did my heart good.

We just got back from the house we're trying to buy. No, haven't sold our house yet. I think we'll drop the price. Lot's of lookers, a offer or two but haven't sold.

Oh yeah, I can't wait to see the fuel EA myself!!!

Give you a corvette...dang. Id say you did make out well on that deal.

Light car, good power and better mpg than most cars designed for commuting, cant beat that.

Yeah, I had told him that I've never owned a convertible or even a sports car for that matter and he surprized me with that.
