WOW there are some great planes there, I made the Wambatt and it seems hardlock and I had close to the same ideas. All I can say is well done everyone. Very impressive planes. This contest sparked my creativity and a pretty bad crash with the wambatt I am redesigning it without the tail section and adding canards to see how it works, This was the first real scratch build I did but it won't be the last. Thanx E-Zone for helping me find a new and fun way to enjoy this hobby.

I agree! Great planes all! Thanks Ezone for the opportunity to show off all the creativity out there.

Dauntae - Hehe - Great minds think alike!
Sorry to hear about the crash. Let us all know how the canard version turns out. Always had trouble with those myself.

One correction on the Polly Pusher entry specs - The 1600 cells noted in the writeup should have been just NiMHs (RS & Sanyo) and the 1400AEs are obviously the NiCads.

I'm excited my combat triangle sparked some creativity. I appreciate being given partial credit in the build article too - thanks.

Wow, some of those entrys blew me away with the craftsmanship
put into the projects! Quite unlike my hack-n-slash entry.

Speaking of entrys, I think Ernie Reynolds and I must have been
having sone kind of whacked vulcan mind meld. Our entries were
identical exept for some cosmetic differences.

If you read this Ernie, email me. I would like to know more details
of your planes flying abilities.
