Paul's BowPlane - Plans, Pictures and Videos!

My friend Paul built the BowStick but didn't like the fact that it didn't have a fuselage. So, he built a fuselage and it looks and flys so nice that I took a video for you to enjoy! I also took a few pictures. For those that will want to build one I have also drew some plans. Enjoy.

Looks like a winner!
What thickness are the balsa wing reinforcements?

I think he used 1/16". I will ask him tomorrow at work. I know it's not over that but I don't think it's 1/32".

It doesn't do much for looks but it really make a stable wing.

Mitchell did this on his Ellipso Aero and WHAT A DEFFERENCE!
No bending or fluttering and flys great with very little weight!

Thanks, DaDesign (what a coincidence, my website is dj-design
That's much less expensive than reinforcing with CF, and flatter too.

I talked to Mitchell today and he said it was 1/16X2"X (what ever length you need) Balsa. One on top and one on the bottom.

I checked out your webSite. Classy! You do some good stuff bro.
