Speaking of foamies, I'm gonna try my hand at a entry level 3D plane. I've put together a 42inch 3d epp foamy sort of like Gary ( I think thats his name? ), and Mike's. I'm just waiting on the motor I ordered.
P.S. I'll give you the 5 dollars the next time I see y'all.

Not sure how I missed this thread but I did. Just finished reading it and must add my congrats on a great build. The homecoming party for your BL added another whole dimension.
Thanks for a good read.

Resurrecting this thread prompted me to revisit the Cougar.
I never was able to get this thing slowed down on landings. I didn't build any wash-out into the wings which made the slow flight characteristics suck.
Even tried reflexing the ailerons up to try and simulate wash-out but it really didn't work.
Every landing approach was a hairy, near tip-stall, wing wagging experience.
I've knocked the tail off three times and the nose twice trying to set it down at 90 mph.
So yesterday morning I sawed off the wings and hot wired some new wing cores with about 2°-3° of wash out.
At speed this was a great flying plane, one of my favs.
Will be nice to fly it again without having a panic attack on every landing.

Glad your doing it right, Julian. It will fly with a little up trim as compared to the old wings. It will want to fly at a slight positive angle. Washout effectively reduces the WA.
BTW, I have a local friend who is interested in a John Bell F-80, will pay for both builds. 203% for a 60mm exhaust for the CS fans. A big stick plane with Poly-Span covering and Eflite 10 retracts.
