3d amos moses

This is my version of the popular F3a

Have been having so much fun with it , i figured i would share
My original version was for cdrom and had a 26" span. it flew great.

now with the really cheap and powerfull brushless motors out there
i thought i would bump it up a knotch.

i give you 34"amos

My amos is so much fun with a BP12 and 3 cell on it

torque rolls , knife edges , inverted and hovers easilly.
It does all the cool stuff

My depron is gone and its time for a new one
i started a bluecore version this morning

have fun with it

Cool EWO, thanks for those plans. I'm building one tomorrow from your plans @ around 71%. Do you by chance have a close up pic of the tail surfaces and the motor mount - always looking for new ideas. Thanks.

Like ewo said two batt. positions for the type of flying you want. If you set the CG forward it flies like a plane and floats forever. Set the CG back and have fun.
