Not much point (IMO) in reinventing the wheel??
Thanks for your input!

Anyone wanting to build a balsa BD-5, here is the link: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...&highlight=bd5]

Will try not to reinvent the wheel next time

Balsa---or----Foam

Hummmmm I'll take the foam For the extra weight it's worth 1. not having to cover w/monocote 2. 10 min build time

Cheers

You are compairing this to the one by Dblum... in case you haven't noticed this is foam. It may look similar, but it's not a copy.
My $.02 worth.

Thanks for the link. On the balsa build I noticed he used a mid mounted motor and drive shaft. That should make balancing much easier. Not as simple to build as the pusher.

Hey vleisie,

can we have a little more info??

did you reinforce the depron someway? I mean, if you intend to land and take-off from the belly, it won't las too long if you don't protect it.

what did you use for the colorfull lines, paint, oracover,etc??

Happy landings!

Dani

Hi Dani,

I used clear packing tape on all the leading edges, it protects and stiffens the surface. I would recommend this for the bottom of the plane also. It is very light.

The colours are vinyl, you can get it from a sign shop. It is very convenient, but a bit heavy, probably 20g or more on this plane.

The video is up on youtube:
Depron BD-5 (1 min 45 sec)


I'm still figuring out how to embed it here.

This was the fifth flight.
