Hopefully Lucky #3

Building of rev 3 still in process. Itching to finish it, but I have had no time lately. Maybe this weekend if it rains.

WoW Jason looking good! Have you folded over the Bluecore to make air foils on the wing? I imagine it would also give the wings some added strengh. What size model is rev 3 going to be?

Keep up the good work

GO-RC,

I'm anxious to give this one a try myself. I'd be more than happy to offer my services as well to draw this up in CAD. I'm pretty fast with a mouse these days, and I could have it drawn up in no time. Besides, I can go right from CAD to Foam, on my CNC, and have one up and flying an hour after I finish the CAD work...

I'd be glad to do it if it get the plans in everyone's hands a little sooner.

Happy to help if I can,

Thank you Dan. I have made some progress on the plans and hope to have them ready for conversion before long. They will still most likely need to be assembled in a 3D program and parts adjusted to fit.

Hey Alfredo great picture. Looks like your part of a cool club.


I have made some good progress on the plans. The two sheets are almost complete and ready for conversion! Hope there's still folks out there looking forward to making a Falcon of thier own?

Flight testing still progressing on the Falcon. She still has some roll questions to work out. Winglets didnt resolve it. Goanna remove them I think. Maybe if others build one we can work the quirks out together. She does fly well, just needs some fine tuning. I'm going to start flights with the canopy attached now. We'll See how much drag it causes.

Too much fun!

GO-RC... Nifty, I'm up for building one.

Akura... that project wasn't even on my radar. I've got a new one coming down the pipes that's been occupying my mind...
