Next Coroplast plane.

Okay guys, here are the options. I have my favorites, but since you guys are the ones buying and flying them, you can decide what one is next.

I think most of you know what they look like or how to find out, but I'll save you the trouble.

These are in no particular order.

Share this link with anyone you know who has an F-22, or you think would want one of these as a profile combat plane.

It's slow going, but the new plans have been printed. We'll see if I can make them work. Still a bit to do to get them the correct size.

The prototype has maidened. Needs some adjustments. The battery has to be at the tip of the fuse to balance.

I'll try adding some nose weight (argh!) to V1.2 and try again later.

Here's version 1.2. It flies better with 40 grams added to the nose. I'd like to keep the battery in the "canopy" area. Without the weight and the battery there, it needs to be all the way to the tip of the plane for correct balance.

I think version 2.0 will have to have a slightly smaller wingspan. I'm probably going to have to extend the fuse in front of the wing to make it longer so the cg can be better.

What's worse, a longer than scale nose with no weight, or scale nose but added weight for correct cg?

If possible, I'd aim for less scale but not needing weight. Or perhaps try to meet half way. Trying to keep the battery back a little would be very nice. I'd prefer it not be the first thing to impact when I crash.
