EWO , sorry for not building the Xtra 300 yet ... we've been pretty busy around here getting ready for Hurricane season, The Escape Pod and all the other precautionary stuff you do when you've had the experiences we went through , (not as bad as some , we were LUCKY !!!) ....My FB's are on my butt about " where's my plane " ??? I'm committed to build 4 300's and will start asap ... I'd love to ask you for your new plans (bipe), but I don't want to commit to more building untill I get all this other stuff done ... Hope they're still available when things clear UP ......???? Thanks !!!


We'll be there ... just go on down further, past all the derelict/flooded trucks etc. CU we start early ...07:00

GPW.

you got nothing to be sorry about. I know you will build it eventually .
Keep the escape Pod handy and loaded down with the nessesaties.

Foamies and such can be replaced easilly.

People can not !

Oh and you will definatly be getting the plans.........

Sweet lookin bipe...

Question about the 300 though... Wasn't paying attention when I printed out the plans and wound up leaving page scaling on... I've got a 28" WS on this one. Also have now got the templates printed to the correct size but since I've got foam cut out for 28" WS, I figured I'd make it a 'sporty plane' instead of going 3D with it.

I plan to keep it as light as possible, but do you think a J250 will at least fly it if it won't 3D it?

Pics to follow later tonight...

Looking forward to the pic,s
I think that a cdrom would better suit this plane at 28" But
a j250 in a c gearbox with a 0947 prop would certainly fly

Probably 3d with the right cg.
Have fun with it mike.

Hrm... I had set aside a 17T cdrom for this plane initially, but then thought it was 'undersized' so was going to save the cd motor for the full-size version. I really just like using these j250's. I should... I have enough of them just waiting to be used.

Ok... Will stick with the original plan then and put the cd motor on the 28" plane.

Only problem... Didn't get to finish tonight... The baby decided he wanted to stay up and play. He usually goes to bed by 9:30 or so, but tonight he just wouldn't stop talking (chattering/babbling). The wife and I laughed with him/at him until about 12:30 when he finally calmed down and went to sleep.

Thats more important than the planes anyway...

I'll get to it...
