A Flying Snoopy Doghouse

OK... I am going to thorow this out there and see what I get.

I have seen a Fly lawnmower, Pizzabox, and other strange things. Does anyone know if there is a company or plans out there for a Snoopy Doghouse? Yes Snoopy the Dog, as if he were chasing the Red Barron.

I think this might be an interesting project PLUS I have alway been a HUGE fan of Snoopy.

If anyone knows, please post.

Thanks
Gary...

This company has pretty much what you're looking for. http://www.flyingthingz.com/
Actually saw a bit on the Discovery Channel on them a few nights ago. Had the Lawnmower, witch and a few other things shown flying. Definitely different.

That must be one of the oldest flying non-airplanes (as opposed to non-flying airplanes ).
IIRC RCM has (had?) a plan in its range.

In plan, RCM had one that looked like an Eindecker with a dog house where the fuselage was, but I think the one you want was a MAN plan <http://www.rcstore.com/rs/general/de...4713&catego=PL>.

Looks similar to the FlyingThingz kit listed above.

THANK YOU Everyone.

THis is almost exactly what I was looking for. I probably paint it yellow since that was teh color of his dog house.

The MAN plan was done, I think, by Al Signorino. When he flew it at some gathering (Nats, etc.), He got a letter from a lawyer saying that either he paid a hefty licensing fee or he didn't fly it anymore. What I heard was that he just took snoopy off the top.

I did a control-line version, but didn't hear from anybody.
