Well , here is mine I am waiting on wheels, other than that it is finished. I must say I enjoyed this build very much! This is my first shot at a super light foamie. I am at 123 grams with a TP480 2s pack. I am very pleased to say the least. Now I have to find a place to fly the darn thing Here are my numbers as well as some pics. Thanks again for the plans and info guys!

Now thats what I'm talkin about! Great job on the build


Did you harden the holes in the control horns with some CA? I tend to get some 'egging out' of the horn over time if I don't....

Thanks matchlessaero,and good tip on the horns. I will give it a try. I use the thicker ply for my larger planes and they hold up well. The 1/64 ply is a whole lot thinner. I do see where the CA will help.

a couple of things I will add, I used RC-56 on pretty much everything. If you apply it with a "T" pin and wipe off the excess with a damp cloth, the joint is invisible when dry. Then with RC-56 most the weight of the glue evaporates when drying. I used .250 in Blenderm strips for hinges. I did learn that every little thing counts when trying to stay below 130 grams. This is fun stuff!

I love the look of this plane but it looks to me like it cut from a large piece of Depron not the smaller sheets we get here in the US. Am I correct that the wing and the horizontal portion of the fuse is one piece?

I can't imagine you'd lose much strength if it was constructed in pieces like a Shockflyer.

Actually I think it would be stronger but a tad heavier. It looks like from some of the other pics, someone may have built one using the "shockflyer" type construction method. I just wanted to double check what my eyes were seeing. We don't have an indoor facility so I will probably build with 6mm Depron for outdoor flying.

Yup, one piece. The larger sheets are available in the US. I would think you would be just fine with 6mm splicing here and there.

I personally liked the way everything went together per plans. Less glue joints, less weight and stronger. If you look closely at Didier's plane and mine as well, the outer few inches of wing tips have been spliced. This is due to the sizing of the full sheet Depron. If you layout the plan on the large sheets so the grain goes lengthwise on the wing , the sheets come up a bit short to cover the span.

The design is well thought out, it can be built incredibly light yet rigid. The moments are perfect for component placement in realation to C.G. I was a bit worried about hitting C.G. using a 12 gram motor with a superlight pack. But it came out perfect

Oh, here is another option for larger sheets of Depron.

maybe I should have rephrased my thoughts to be cost effective depron in the US...the shipping costs are very high unless you live in a city where you can just go pick up a couple...not an option for me. I don't compete so few grams or an oz or two want be a big deal for me flying outdoors. Thanks for the replys...you gotta luv the internet forums!

I actually wasn't paying enought attention and cut the tail separately and joined it similar to a Shockie tail , using UHU Por . No problems with strength , and I doubt that one glue joint added much weight. I'm thinking the CG could be moved back considerably from the plans , with no ill effects , but my Bling is temporarily Blung following an abrupt encounter with the floor. Darn solid plane in knife edge , as stable as I've flown.

My Bling is done..

3mm depron,27g cdrom, 6g servos, 10a esc, no l/g, 2mm wing bracing and a full length fuse stiffener..

125g without a battery....

I've had a quick flight outside with a little wind which seemed pretty good and a few packs of hovering indoors with a 3cell 340. It hovers easy..
