250% Weezzle

A project - Weezzle magnified 2.5 times (250%).
I began by scanning the original drawing. Enlarged it in Photoshop and printed new drawing.

Hi Tomas,

Good work. I have often thought about super sizing Weezzle or Frazzle but seems you beat me to it.

Think you might have inspired me! …Guess we had better up date the plan accordingly.

What motor are you planning on using?

Paul.

Thanks Paul!

I plan on using my AXI 2208/34 on 3s 800mAh LiPo.
I plan a total weight around 400 gram.

Original Weezzle has no undercarriage but my "big brother" will have a removable UC.
Also fin/rudder will be able to unmount for easier transport of the model. Return later to it...

400% perhaps? The Weezzle is still pretty compact even at that size. A 400% or even 500% twin electric Weezzle would be much better for FPV than the more commonly used chevron planforms IMHO.

Tomas, Fantastic! Great execution on a great model. I have looked at the plans for years and always wanted one. Now I guess I have no excuses. I could build one from scratch but will purchase plans instead since that is the "RIGHT" thing to do! Mr. Cook, when I build mine I promise I will purchase my plans from you. Then I can build all your great planes, thanks.
