building my own...thing that i think can fly =)
dont really know if this is the right place to put this thread.
so, if it´s on the wrong place, then you can move it to the right. =)
well.. over to what i´m gonna wright about.
iv been looking around here in sweden after Depron, but its much to expensive to buy and ship it to my place.
so yesterday(monday 19/4) we hade our usual buildingday at our local Rc-Club, so i snopped(right word for it? ) there and found a elev in white-foam, aprox 60cm spann.
thought that it could be a good mainwing to my project.
so today i started to build in my...thing.
was´nt sure what motor i would use for it.. i hade one from my GWS F4U Corsair that i could use, but i thought it would be to big for the plane.
and then i hade 2engines from a CCEP LuckyStar. but one prop was broken, so i could just use the one that was Ok...
but...after some thinking i decided to take the GWS motor..
because _IF_ it would fly, i maby could make some coole manuvers with a bigger engine.
so the system i´ll be using is:
some GWS engine + gearbox
GWS 100 ESC
GWS 5channel RX
1300mAh(or was it 1200) 7.2V Li-Pol
it will have just elevon(ail and elev at the same..thingy) and throttle, so i really hope this thing will fly.
and some photos
Setup No:2, but ill bee using No:1

something like this í think it´ll look like when im finished.
buit alla the mechanical is missing
i think the wingspann is abit to..smal, so i cut of the wingtipps from my Corsair so now it´ll be about 15-20cm bigger
more pics will come.

These are the best planes ever.
A few bits of foam and balsa thrown together. What hapens is they don't fly too god, so you add a bit here, take a bit off there, and then they do!
I made a chuck glider for a friends kid - decorated it with colored film, stuck stars and stripes decals on it...and he played with it all weekend.
This is a radio controlled powered chuck glider!!!
It will fly.
