New Brick plane

My newest project involved scaling the 'One Wing or Two' down to under a 12" span. I succeeded.

Behold the 11.5" span, 17.8gram micro biplane. The original bluecor design came from RC Microflight-designer was Dick Sarpolus. His wingspan was near 25" inches.

This project uses the ever popular Parkzone brick. I gutted a Vapor for these parts. I swapped the Cessna 210 prop with the one that came with the Vapor. It's much smaller!

Foam varies from 2mm to 3mm Depron.
2mm: wing, tail pieces, wheel pants
3mm: fuselage

The paint is Creatix red and black, and was airbrushed in under two hours. I used BSI foam safe CA with kicker. This is my first project using the right foam safe CA. It went well! The Bob Smith products are worth the extra money. I hot glued the Parkzone brick to the fuselage.

The landing gear is small diameter CF rod, with some wire bent instead of wheels.

I will get video soon. As long as I make it to school early tomorrow, I'll get some gym time to test it out. I know the CG is too far back, but I'll have to lengthen the wires to change that.

Thanks for looking!
