I talked to someone today and they said they were gonna post some files from the cad pic posted earlier(not sure on format though),i think they will be very accurate if enlarged from the cad rendering and enlarged to give a 48'' wingspan and 51'' fuselage length for the cuts but ive never used any software for doing this stuff so im not sure. Really like the cad renderings though.. still cant get over how cool they look.

Take your time,if it wasnt for your skill and time only a few people would be trying these ,it still kind of cracks me up that this plane was cut last weekend and now there will be plans for it a week later and maybe 5 or 6 flights into it. It flys pretty well as is and what ever revisions i end up making down the road i'll post. Seriously though,if theres something you dont like about how it flys after you cut one out let me know,(how its set up asside, IE power system weight,throws,expo etc)I think most will have fun with it and for $8.00 for a sheet of the owens its a good way to try scratchbuilding and have fun.

I will still convert them to PDF from DXF when they are done, Its just a matter of saving the file as a PDF out of autocad. LMK or email me when you are ready. THX

Finally got some stress tests in,because others will be flying something i designed i felt i should find its breaking point.. even if it meant destroying the plane in the process to insure reliability and proper set up for those that will fly it. Stress testing went good today and provided good info as well as other tests. Videos will be posted later of deflection rate,prop,... and the breaking point. Use 400 watt power systems and gear or your on your own.. see video below.

Holy Smokes You beat on it way more than anyone should. I think it did excellent! That was extreme I love how the plane floated down gracefully after the jettison of the motor.

Blessings,

Jay
