1 meter laminated EPP Bobtail Plank Flying
After a number of false starts my wing is finally flying. I got a 10 minute flight on a 1500kv motor with 7*6 prop and 1100mah lipo. The front fuse is mostly a piece of bamboo plywood I cut from a clipboard. AUW is 600 grams. It's tough getting the cg to 10% which is only a few centimeters from the LE. Thanks to Averan for his help.
Added first video of few loops and rolls.
Second video was of first flights.
I like this plane so much that I am going to strengthen and steamline the fuse. Will use some graphite fishing pole sections inside few layers of 9mm epp foam, wrap with strapping tape, then wrapped with colored tape then laminated. Then affix wings with couple of bamboo chopsticks. Then make a wood motor mount and use a faster motor. Will also move forward a larger tail.
