You lost me with 2 wings x times -3 part.............does that include adding the weight and amount of drag produced by the traditional landing gear of a tail dragger or the extra weight of the overdoing of hot melt glue filling in the mistakes???? And I just saw your last post..............can't stop laughing......it hurts....

well if you want to get technical,

2wings is slang for full span ,and the x factor is the length-3 times the height

see?
simple hugh?

EWO , cool animation .... Question about the 300... very low speed High AoA plane tends to wallow (wing rocking/tip stalling all at once ) , my Mini 3D epp did the same thing .... Is it normal , or can I tame this some way ... You be the designer....wassUP with that ???
Could you please restate your power system and exact setUP ... The boys want to build it like you did it ... I would like to do the same , cause mine came out too light and small ...??? I dunno' how that happened?????

Animation isnt mine, i borrowed it from a Japanese website a week or so ago.
Just thought it was cool and seamed to fit me as i was a break dancer back in the late 80,s early 90,s.................

Still do pop and lock when i get out of bed in the early hours

Anyways
I havent had any such problems with mine at all . Cept. i needed some stuff fo another desigh so i robbed things from my 300

The red white and blue one in the pictures earlier was 32 " I did add a little to the rudder and it flew verry good No kind of wallowing , maby the extra rudder area helped

It had a 17 turn komodo and 3 HS55 servos, and cheap gws reciever
also i used a 700 and a 910 cell battery .

Hope this helps some
I would be glad to resize the drawings to whatever size would work best for your crew

hUMMMMM wallowing YEH. Do a fly by and see if the ailerons are where they are suppose to be during flight. I had a plane one time that did that and both of them would tuck or cup up a tick from the air flow. So the flexing would rock the wings. Once I fixed it the issue went away.

Guys , Don't get me wrong , I love the plane , and it is only this rare circumstance that makes me wonder ... I checked out the wings / ailerons , everything , all FINE !!! It just may be the pilot (might I say that ?) and his desire to fly in a hovering /slow motion / blimp-like manner that finds this lone odd flying trait ... low speed flying very high AOA (harriers, elevators) ,beyond a certain point , the plane seems to just lose it and fall off to one side or the other ... usually toward the torque side (left ) but not always (?)and seems like wing rocking at the same time .... maybe something as simple as more power , or the fact that my CG is about 45% now ...
hmmmmm?
EWO , thanks for the setUP info ... mine's about 28.5" and equipped similarly to yours...I really like the rudder response!!!!!! ... did you add extra (excuse the pun )area to the plans rudder ...????
TOG , how didja' fix it ??? Been thinking more and more about the extra FFF layer back to 40% of wing .... worked great on the Shark , and really stiffened the wing ...???

gpw it was the control rods and horns. In slow High alfa forward flight you look at the ailerons and they were flexing. I changed the horns and the rods, made everything stiffer and it worked. Had the same issue with a plane Art got from a guy. It wollowed really bad in high alfa forward flight. Same thing, made it stiffer and alls good.
