Thanks DaDesign!
Which one I'm going to build is a bit of a wonder at the moment. Any suggestions to which one would be a better trainer? I'm kinda new to the whole RC thing

I really like the Ellipso Aero Cub (The last set of plans on page one, post #2). I use the blue wonder motor 1300kv and a two cell battery. I love flying this plane. I let all the newbee's at the flying field fly this one. It's fun to see them lite up when they can fly it like a seasoned flyer. Now they call me before time to fly and ask me to "Be sure and bring the Cub".

This would be the one I would recommend.

Could you say whether a flat plate or a KFm2 or a KFm4 performs the best for the design? Oh and I really like you idea for the LG.. I'll try and get some aluminium put it on
Thanks
Jim
Sorry, i don't know if you saw this tucked away on the other page. I was wandering about your experiences with the KF airfoils on this plane.
Thanks again
Jim

I'm sorry Jim, I didn't see it. Thanks for the reminder. I built the low wing with the KFm2 wing and it flew really well. I think the KFm4 wing would be better if you want to do aerobatics. I did do a version of the KFm4 on the biplane so it would slow fly, more like a biplane and it worked great.

I'll include the different Richard Kline airfoil types with his explanations.

I look forward to your build. Which one were you planning to build?

Ron did a wonderful plan with the KFm4 wing on page 2 post #20. I would make the elevator straight if it were me.

I'll be more than happy too. I will try to get that today so you can get your cub build started.

Thanks for building it and I look forward to seeing your cub.

Awesome... I was planning on the LW on the first page.. in fact I have already cut out the plans Is that the low winger to go for?
Thanks

Thanks. I checked the other plan that you mentioned and I saw that it had wing saddles cut at an angle into the fuse. Is this necessary or can I mount it flat on?
Cheers
Jim

I think Ron did that for the KFm step. Another way is to cut the step where the fuselage goes. This model has been built in so many different ways and still seems to fly great. Most people make it their own and don't necessarily follow the plans completely. So, play around with it, have fun with it, let us know what you did and how it worked out for you. Many times what someone else did was better. That's how we learn from each other.

The one on the front page picture gallery with the snow ski's is this model. The picture will also reference what post # to look up and read about it.

Thanks for all your post. Keep them coming.

Here you go Josh. Wing span 33". Motor can be 1300kv or 1500kv or maybe 2000kv. Use what you have.
Ailerons and elevator only. The rudder is a vertical fin only. You can hook it up but it is not needed.

Have fun and post pictures.

Here is an update on the Aerobile.
Its all finished and ready for a maiden flight as soon as the weather permits and i get brave enough to launch it. The ground is too rough here for an ROG so i will have to hand launch it. Anyway here is the picture for you.

Should be interesting.
