Any "Decathalon" type plans out there yet like this?

I was checking out the E-Fest footage and saw RJ flying this Decathalon. Looks like a fun build. I checked Fancy Foam, nothing yet, any data elsewhere?

There is no way I could fly that low to the floor without crashing.

RJ kept it under wraps until E-Fest. We knew he had something new, but he wouldn't say what. Looks like he really hit this one, I like it even better than his MX2. Fancy Foam is supposed to be kitting it, but I haven't seen a release date. I doubt you'll see plans. He's on RCGroups, normally in the F3P forum, you might contact him.

Not only was he flying close to the floor - he was carrying on a conversation, too - maybe even chewing gum and rubbing his tummy, too, eh??

There's a nice 2-view here:

Should be easy for someone to transmogrify a BluBaby into a Decathlon.

The guy that won the Blubaby tribute contest did it with a BB morphed into a Decathalon. Looked like one to me! Search on BB tribute for info, or look at the Tony's planes sticky, Jack may have put the link there.

Hey guys, thanks for the interest in the 3Decathlon! We've been very busy getting kits ready for ETOC recently, but as soon as that's over I plan to finish up a couple little changes to the 3Decat and we should be ready to go. I'll post an update here when it's close to being available.
