Built up foam and balsa Champ
Hi all, i'm working on a built up foam and balsa Champ right now and thought i'd share some pics before i cover the wing.
This build started a few nights ago when i built up the fuselage while playing with foam scraps. I was just going to slap a foam wing i had already on it and cut some solid sheet feathers, but today i got a bug to build something a bit more scale and detailed, so i went ahead and built a wing with hefty plates for ribs and tips, and balsa for LE, TE and spar.
I also cut the tail from hefty plate foam and skeletonized it.
Now i just need to cover the wing, cut some windows, and figure out what i'm going to do with it. I'd like to make it RC, but i'm short a motor and don't want to tear apart another plane to get the gear. I'm thinking of either going RC glider and flying it slope, rubber powered free flight, or even rubber RC. The tail i built isn't hinged as i haven't decided if i'm going to make it RC or free flight.
