Nice job, you kept away from the "monster mushroom" this time although you say it was windy I didnīt notice that at all. That GoPro fish eye thing I donīt like, the horizon is always a huge curve, but I think you can turn that off right? Nice flight and a happy ending.

Well i put some fins on the end of the wings not sure what effect this will have on the plane but i was not to crazy about having the open ends on the wing..
Oh also upgraded the motor to a 15BL 950KV with a 9.5x7.5 prop

Anyone have any idea on if it will effect anything on such a slow flying plane???

I've been flying my noob for a while, and also my twin tail fighter, so I've been looking to try something else. Here is what I came up with, still a work in progress, I have to hook up the electronics and the differential throttle setup, but I'm having fun!

That is really nice, very clear and professional looking. Inspiring also.

WInglessbob thats a pretty cool design and just inspired my next build. Its gonna be a bronco meets bobcat style plane with a pusher prop, similar to yours but with an under wing-ish type of design, using Ed's techniques, of course

I'd love to see a maiden. How are you hooking up the differential throttle?

Wow you guys have some serious finishing skills. All mine turn out looking like actual experiments. Yours could go on a store shelf.

Looks good, have always loved the look of the OV-10. Any change you could give an idea on basic measurements, such as length to tail from wing, tail height.

+1
Very clean design, would love to know more details or a short build log.
Robust enough to throw some FPV gear on it you think? I see no reason why not!

woo hoo!

The 60"ws version was boring to fly, but the new 40" wings and 300w motor make this a blast to fly! It is exactly what I was hoping for. Handles really well, rolls quick, great vertical and has a nice glide ratio too.

I think this is gonna be my 'all-rounder' that I can fly in any location or conditions!
