Very cool Depron bird you have there RcLento! Very short wingspan

She'll be a fast bird, the wing reminds me of a Dornier 228!

Thanks demon !

You know,i like your designs and cuts too !

It is not a depron,Some another foam ! you can see when you zoom picture,and yes wing is little bit short but according to that wingload is also larger ! Sooo it can fly fast and at the same time with nice touching to elevator down by this way it can also fly slow by wingload !

Very nice plane and very clean build!!

I am jealous my planes never look clean :-)

Have you set any up or down thrust on the motor (I can't really tell from the pictures). My last scratchbuilt also has a high thrust line ans I struggled quite a bit to optimize the motor angle (see http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...4&postcount=26).

Now, we want to see it fly!!!

Cheers,

Franck

That is very clean looking! Do you have the servos installed?I Couldn't tell.Also do you have more of that red foam to do a KF step?

Hey Ffrank I've been working on something similar to your vid and have same thought.

Thanks for your comment Franck;

In building time,i am little bit trying to be careful about epoxy and other glues,i could say that its really hard to keep clean scratchfoams planes in building progresses.Sometimes So small part being under of foam and leaving scratches when the plane is almost ready and that it making me smile but no matter what in time many signs will be.

For the motor vectoring,i am using level laser that show how straight motor is mounted...It depends that if the plane`s design is little bit tail heavy than i am putting motor down thrust position.

I will try to post a flight video as soon as possible !

Thanks again
