Airco DH2 like design log
Should have published several designs but time and patience
has not been there ... I'm recently working on a micro Airco DH2
but it's still too heavy.
I've put the micro DH-2 on hold an scaled it up to 1:12 with
a 724mm (~28.5) wing span. I've built it as strong and with
cheap materials as possible. No carbon, no paint, cheapest
possible lightweight brushless, cheap LiPo. Why? I hope it will
become a rugged and very useful trainer for some kid's in
the summer vacation.
Hopefully I may fly it's maiden this evening.
Yes it flew ! or more correctly it hoovered into the air!
Funniest plane I've ever flown. Slow ... I could almost walk
alongside! I just taped a LiPo on the front fuselage so I got
to make a battery bay tonight ...

Hey FLOEY - well I showed your DH2 to my 13 yr old. He recognized it the plane and said "I love that plane, can I have some foam". He's got the wings cut already but got distracted shooting fireworks this weekend- Thanks Prunner
