I finally got around to scratching up one of my ideas using the bomber version of the Ezfly. I just traced over a single sheet print out of your plans ,and tweaked it here and there, and with some paint it wouldn't look to bad. A Waco glider would be easier, and they had some with twin engines on .

As far as my dad was able to get yesterday. He won't have a day off again for a few days, so I'll get more progress pics when that happens.

All of the parts fit pretty well on a 24x36 sheet of EPP. We are thinking of extending the rear part of the upper fuselage back to the rudder so it is all one piece, so the build can be assembled in the same manner as most other crutch-type profile planes.

I need to build one of these. My 6 year old daughter says she wants me to build her something easy to fly. I was thinking of a Parkzone BNF small plane but those only fly outside when it's really calm. This looks much better being a pusher. Kinda like that frog plane someone sells online but this one is free! Love the dragon theme, I think she will like that a lot.

We finally had some good weather, so LT maidened the EzFly. First off "the taxi" extremely maneuverable. Second "the launch" took off very easy except I had too much up elev trim, so she brought it back down & I adjusted. Third "the flight" very floaty easy to maneuver with D/R @ 40%. Fourth "the landing" a little bit rough but all came out good with no prop to worry about. This was LT's first flight with RC planes, she thought it was quite easy (I told her it was the plane, that didn,t go over so well). So again thanks for the plans, the plane is everything you said it would be!

My dad got all the foam parts cut yesterday. He is experiencing the learning curve that is cutting foam. hehe. I gave him a few pointers, then he cut, and said my knife was dull. I took the knife from him, made a few nice clean cuts with the same knife... He's learning. My OCD self is having a hard time letting him do all the work.

Looks like you guys are going to have fun with this one.
6MM depron should be fine. Years ago I built something similar out of fanfold for a friend.

So I am new to this, which will be apparent by the stupid question I am gonna ask. Is that a "Pusher prop" mounted on there. Where and how do I find the correct style prop?? Stupid questions I know but most props I've looked at do not indicate if they are pushers or not. Maybe a brief explination could help a newbe out. Thanks..

Something like these?

Mayday, you can use a regular prop on these. You just need to make sure that the lettering / numbering faces the front. If you do get a pusher prop, you need to make sure the lettering faces the rear of the plane. I think most of us use a regular prop and put the letters/numbers facing forwards.
