ummmmmm, it's missing something, just can't put my finger on it but it sure is missing a little something.

There is interest just not enough time in the week. I'm working on work stuff which after I'm done will share a couple with you's but it leaves little time for the me stuff. By the way I'm working on small yard fliers and having a blast, Almost brainless fun. And yes I know 3d could be considered yard fliers but these are true fliers not hoverers. All fly great on the IPS motor and a 3020 prop 2 servos and 340/400 2 cell battery.

Going to work on mine tonight... Finally got my Blue Albacorde cut out, was going to do the funder next, but will start on this one... Been needing a nice 3D/Pattern ship. Hopefully this fits the bill.

Ewo I'm watching also. Right now got a couple of planes and motors on the table. Looking nice. Yeah how is the foam? I might order some from them.

Uproar90 you will love the "Blur"Albacorde!! That's one fun little flyer. I keep mines setup with it's own electronics. Make sure you have the CG right and it will be one of your favorite flyers.

I just got some 3mm Depron from RC Foam. I was not real thrilled when I found that on the 13" x 39" 3mm sheets the grain runs in the 13" dimension which makes it almost worthless for me. I have gotten into the indoor pattern models (F3P) and wanted to build some different ideas. Most F3P ships are around 31" ws and weigh 105to 150 grams so not a lot of carbon is used in the construction, mostly kevlar thread bracing.

Jerry have the same prob with the 3mm I have, I think thats the way I'm going with the extra, super light. I'm so use to these things being over 8 oz I need to get back to a 3D'er thats under 6 oz, looing for 4 all up. I cherry picked the .8mm X 3mm carbon flat for the best pcs we had. Used it on the 3mm Soma I crashed and it really worked out well. I used it on a 3mm SU-26 I built and it was all up 5.3 oz using a 3 cell pack so with one of the new 2 cell motors we're about to put up on the site I should be in.

Well nothing else to do tonight I guess I'll get started. See you in a few hours with a report.

ewo, dang, really like the looks of yours.
