Nice flying. I have been super impressed by these planes, even with my itty-bitty 0.9oz blue wonder motors.

Looks like fun. I had a go at streamer combat with my FB. Lots of close shaves but no hits. He also tried to park his Funbat on top of my big flying wing. A most unwise idea to approach a pusher model from the rear & he had the good sense to chicken out

I might have to build another one of these over the winter. Fun little planes... Crashed my first in the beginning of the season.

We've done streamers twice and, one time, both managed to cut each other's. Lately, we just chase each other around and kinda hope for a collision.

Hi Guys,

I believe that I have my CNC machine back together enough
to start making kits again.
I have some foam stocks and a have another 2 cases
of depron arriving on Wednesday.

I've made web page changes, so if you discover
something amiss please let me know right away.
Also NO MORE Black depron offerings.

I still have to get shipping boxes locally.
A trip to deepest darkest downtown Indianapolis is my
next step on Monday, then I'll be ready to go.

Thanks for your patience while I moved 2400 miles,
bought a new house and moved back in. Wheew !

As always I'm here to serve.

Indeed. How's its top speed? Mine have plenty of grunt, but they top out at a relatively low speed.

It did not have great speed but was a lot of fun and that sound was so cool
I had a set of low wheels in the front so it took off from the ground but the next flight it hit a gofer hole dirt mound and sucked all that dirt strait in the fan took off all the fan blades and it was done. I am glade I took the time to make it
but I'm not going to make anther.

Sorry to hear that. Building them is half the fun at least.

So remove the EDF unit and strap on a mini pulse jet
