Nice work! Any chance you have a keychain cam? I would love to see a video of that gear in action while bouncing it in.

okay, did the low wing, wing tips at 60% of the fuse height. wing 5% larger. test glide real nice. very stable, tho no wind that day. wing was too far forward and had a c-47 look to her. needed lots of nose weight. tho i kinda like the look.

next up is a 35% version, foamy.

low wing 25%

pretty basic. all in all, nice. i would like to build a second (third?) one with the wing forward like this, but ill do that later when i can put more into it. has waay too much weight aft of the CG.
ill probly put in some gear and lighten the aft end, and turn it into a 1ch glider. bee a good test of stablity.

I like you Gear !

Nemo, I had a heck of a time getting my CG forward enough on the original.
Moving the wing forward would only make it Worse.
I was onboard with the Bottom mount but forward is Pushing it IMHO.

i had to stuff a 300ma 1S lipo in the nose to glide right!
if i do make a second one, it will most likely be balsa, or foam/balsa hybrid. diffficult to control weight distribution of the fuse with $tree foam. depron would do better, skellitonized, or milled, but $tree foam is waaay to soft for that.

would be kinda nicd to have balsa stick and tissue aft of the cg, and $tree foam in the nose, as tree foam is pretty good about hard landings.

Larry ross passed away at the age of 68

Hi LENNY,
It's Lana, Larry Ross's wife. It is with great sadness but even greater peace that I have to tell you that Larry passed away a week ago today. It took me a while to find your emails. Would you let the RC Groups know that Larry is with the Lord and healed completely now and that in lieu of flowers, there is a memorial fund: Larry D. Ross Memorial Fund at ANB Bank, 569 32 Road, Grand Junction, CO 81504. We need help with the final expenses.

Thank you for being a wonderful friend to Larry. We will scatter his ashes from an RC airplane and a regular plane over Branson, MO sometime this spring.

receiving this today 01/14/2013 was very painful to me cause we had Skyped
12/11/2012..
All the old timers remember Larry for his skill's with sketchup and PDF plans for this forum and many more..
he was always building and some of you new guys should look up his name
LARRY ROSS BLOG,

Larry Ross's RC Plane Collection (10 min 28 sec)


or click on one of his posts....
cause he built huge Twin Cargo's and some as small as a paperplate..

Back in the start of this forum he's there,
just havin a ball helping and building..

FAREWELL LARRY
I BET HE'S BUILDING ONE FOR THE BIG GUY UP THERE RIGHT NOW TO FLY..

YOU WILL BE MISSED....

SAD REGARDS,
LENNY

Sad news, Lenny, but thanks for letting us know.

Larry did a lot for this community and will be missed. The last couple of years were difficult for him, and I'm sure for his family. May they all be at peace now.

Best regards,

Ted
