Foamy Factory Foamboard Ultimate Bipe

Built one of Tim's Ultimate Bipes 24" version. Used Foam board from a craft store ( 3mm )
  • Customcdr special edition motor 8-4HD prop
  • CC PH-10, GWS Pico 4 RX
  • Maxamps 3s 900mAh pack
  • HS-55 servos
Flys good, but I need to increase the control throws more for 3D. I also need to reinforce the fuse in places because the foam cracks easily. AUW is about 7.75 oz on a cheap food scale Next I am thinking of a mini 3DX with a littlescreamers motor to pull it around. - Dirk

Needs more ruder throw. My CG is too far back (nose heavy), thrust line needs alot more down thrust. It is fun to fly, but takes a while to get things set up correctly. I will need to cut more space off the elevator, to get rudder throw. Oh, a bit of tail twist also. I don't know if it will ever be a true 3D performer, but it is fun anyway - Dirk
