Yippee!
Wal-mart plan Plane

this is my newest creation from a "life like" 24" plane, I just took the wing and the fuselage is EPP. the all up weight is 4.5oz. and has a WL of 6oz.

I have yet to hit the slope with it but I will this week and give an update, on initial test flights it is stable (with alittle dihederal) and in my street in front of my house it fly well even with a 10 mph wind! I can't wait to throw it off my mountain this week!!

Yes the CG is very touchy, but I just test it in my back yard and and get the cg right there and then bring the CG forward 1/2" from there and it is usually about right?!
I hope it does well on the slopes, I made another one and but with the models fuselage and it didn't fly very stable at all but this one has a glide of 100ft in the 10 mph winds yesterday so I am hopefull.
