No joke, one of the more senior guys in my club, the one who can basically make things like fence posts fly..has a 80" plane made of cardboard pizza boxes. had a small nitro motor on it. he makes one or two sets of skis a year for members and other fliers. Each one made to spec, different kinds of exotic woods, and springs etc. Amazing stuff.

My kinda guy Porcia: Here's another that's a real hoot to fly. Finally broke his neck too many time and had to bury him. About to build another as the club members want to see him back. He stands on his fine featured feet to take off vertically and being a loose fit, they swivel back under flight to act as rudders. I should see if I can put servos on them to enable him to land back on his feet. His legs are elevons. Pissed ourselves laughing when he's standing up and waggle the ails back and forth and watch him do a jig. Sliding in on a face plant is what broke his neck. Motor and prop is on his beanie hat.Great fun to experiment and what keeps us old farts going ay Frank..

I'll see if I can get pics of the pizza one. Meanwhile, have you seen this guy?

We have another member who does stuff like that, not as extreme.

P83: Those are some wonderful wacky designs. I love stupid weird strange designs. I always get........"When are you going to build a real model airplane?"

Gord: You need to start a 'Beanie Boy' thread, with a plan.

Hey guys
This thread has veered off course. I'm gong to close it. You can start a new thread related to the plane in question.
