new toy!

Just finishing a little indoor plane .It's AUW t is 1 1/2 ounces. I used a brick from a Revell Proto Max heli. The motor is 2 motors geared together from a defunct twin rotor heli. It does not have a rudder It has ailerons, elevator and esc. So It should roll and loop pretty well but no knife edges and hovering probably won't be possible because the motors on it are most likely not strong enough and anyway without a rudder it would be impossible., But I'm thinking it will be kind of fun to fly. Here's hoping. Here are a couple of pics. I may put some wing strakes on it for a little more stability.Not sure if that is a good idea or not. RCNutt

I'm saving parts to do about the same thing with a V911 brick.

What is your wing span?

The winspan is about 22 1/4" measured from aileron tip tp aileron tip. The plane is made from 1 mm and 2 mm foam fron RCFoam. They also have all kinds of CF tubes and rods. The wing and tail is 2mm while the control surfaces are from 1 mm foam. The 1 mm foam comes with a curve in it so I staightened my individual pieces using a hair dryer. Hope that helps. Where did you get your v911 brick from? I have a flyzone triplane a fellow club member gave me but the rx part doen't work .RCNutt
