I also had some fun and did a Northrop X-4
With a bit of sanding this thing will be so close to scale it's not funny
All comments are welcome good or bad

George,

As soon as I get an opportunity to remaiden the Vamp with the elevator, and there are no other issues, I'll be ready to work up the plans.

The Starfighter (just the name sounds cool) may have to wait. I have more ideas than time to execute them.

I have to finish testing changes made to the Hawker Hunter also. Then onto its plans.

Ken

Nice work there Pinky!

The combo laminations on the X4 is novel. Should build up nicely.

Sorry I've not had time to get those component files out yet.

I have a small tec. noob question, how do you connect the small batteries that have no 2 wire connection?? The one I am looking at has the charge plug but as far as I can tell that is it. I know this type of batt. is meant to connect to small plains with the 3 prong plug directly to the on bord ESC but I don't have one of them and want to use a normal speed controller. How would I go about this is there an adapter or something? I'm thinking the red and black are +/- and the white is used for balancing. was thinking if I got a plug to connect onto that and only connected the black and red to my ESC it should work but I need to make sure here.

Hey all...had some time today to start the next set of plans...decided on a MiG-19...I'm still going to finish the F-100, but am tweaking the design to have a prop in slot rather than a tail mount motor...hoping to get one built and flown by next weekend...the MiG-19 has a 19.6" ws and length of 27.3"...wing area coming in at 91.38 sq in...this was designed at 1/18 scale...it has a tractor setup and am drawing in ailerons and elevator...the one I build will have elevons.

Stace

This is done often to save weight. You need the corresponding plug, which will come with three wires also. Clip the center wire, it is for balancing during charging as you thought. Now you can attach to your esc.

Thanks for the info Ken

George how's the build going hope all is fitting together ok sorry I can't give you more info on where to locate everything

Grumman Cougar looks good to me did some numbers and it's about a 25" wing span at 1:16 scale and some major wing area there. May have to scale this one down a bit to fit on one sheet
