I couldn't tell if it is R/E or elevon? Can you make a bad delta I wonder. Nice one there.

I thought so. If you look at some of my builds, I have done some similar planes. Never have done the prop in slot though. I like RET deltas. They rock. I have experiemented with several degrees of dihedral from 24 degrees down to 6 degrees. They would all turn and roll. That high degree of dihedral can be a fun handful going fast I am sure.

This is my second prop in the slot build and I like the sound they make.

Very cool!

Motor Kv? Prop? Plan? or at least some major dimentions.

rcrich,
interesting foamy,any chance of some more info on the build.
I am a big fan of RET planes that act like they have ailerons.Plans or even a rough drawing would be helpfull.

Simple RET that also flies coo coo crazy and add to that protected prop in the slot? Count me in. Some of us just can't totally get with elevons.

I'm good with just some close up pics & measurements.
Sure looks like fun. Maybe an easy build to crank out inbetween the chores.
