I've heard of bamboo being used but surely it is difficult to work with? Congratulations to your father for making a plane with it

Here's a nice bipe from the 30's, mainly made of bamboo.

Hello, I think the material was -spruce and plywood- in this early years. The pictures is from a 1938 kataloge.

This bipe is scanned from a book, printed 1934. Unfortunately no plan, but it sure is inspiring....it would be nice to build something similar, maybe using laminated balsa, or laminated balsa/1/64" ply....

Good find Heinz. Maybe that's the kit he built it from.

That got me thinking that most Forums have a 'post your models' thread and we haven't.

We have now.

Here's my montage to start it off.


I love these two, Where can I get plans for them ? And please tell me that the Dolphin Flies through the air like a Dolphin swimming

Thanks,

The second model shown is (or was) on this site. Be prepared to spend a bit of time looking at all the "Oddities".

The Flying Octagons was published in Aeromodeller Annual 1974-75 Edition.

The dolphin (Delphinium to be strictly correct) was a free plan in Aeromodeller. I was sent a copy of the drawing but haven't got it now. I suppose it could be trimmed to undulating flight, but it's very twitchy to trim and needs very careful power control to prevent any stalling. Lateral balance and a low cg is also critical. It's one of those models I want to make into a Depron electric r/c model. It's on the list but whether I will ever manage it I don't know. Someday....

Thanks for posting that Heinz! I've dug out the Octagons to add to it.

Thank you everyone for the plans and the website. For some reason I like the oddities. Soon as I finish moving I will build these two.

Thanks,
