3D foamie plans--39.5" WS for 6mm depron

Hey Guys,

Long time poster, been away for a while. I have designed in CAD, hand cut, and built several 3d foamie bipes and mono planes using 3mm and 6mm depron. I recently did a save as of a previous design and tweaked it bit and bumped it up in size to arrive at the attached design (PDF 1:1 scale template.) I have built mine but have not flown it yet. The design suggests 6mm depron, but use whatever you fancy.

Cheers!

Kev this is the 3D section, you will get a better response in the correct section (scratchbuilds).

Truthfully, i don't see how you can publish a design (having published many) without test flying it first?

sorry Harlem, that was rude of me. Even though I haven't flown it yet, I feel confident this airframe will perform 3D well because I have cut several before and I think by this time I know what to expect.

It doesn't work like that, blowing up or shrinking down a 'known' good flyer doesn't mean it will fly the same. In my experience, quite often they need fuselage and control surfaces tweaking as...
size changes everything.
Yes you were rude, VERY rude, i have been kicked off this site for a lot less!

Looks like a reasonable design to me. Should fly well.
