56" Foam Board FPV airplane
Here is a look at my new foam board FPV airplane. It has a 56" wing span and a 9.5" chord. That adds up to 532 sq in of wing area. The total length is 44". The Hacker A30-10L V2 motor and I'm running it on a 3300mah 4S pack using an APC 10X5 prop. It is pulling 465 watts at 35 amps. The total airplane weight with flight pack and GoPro is 4 lbs. It should have plenty of power to pull itself around pretty well.
The building techniques are from Ed with Experimental Airlines. My design is a spin off of Ed's AXON. I decided to put the motor in a tractor configuration to help quiet the airplane down a bit. The main idea was to build an airplane that could carry my GoPro and have a descent duration with sufficient power. I was also looking to build an airplane that was fairly quiet and stable.

Any more video's taken in the air from this wonderful design?
I'l make one similair out of pink foam (with hotwired wings, a bit larger wingspan though - about 2.5m).
