In this case, "the means justify the end".

Technically Kevin Cox's F(oamy)-18 Twin Midifan Jet would be the first 1Kw foam jet, but Lucien's build will be the first Foamy Pusher, which is much more impressive

If its not too much of a hassle.... Could you please post tiled plans for the Single PJ one??? Would be much appreciated

Steve, once again, great job! I have the plans printed and am awaiting my depron order. Hope to make the SU 37 with a single in the middle and a 3mm fake bottom to hide the wires. Will keep you posted.

Well Steve, once again you have outdone yourself! What an awesome model! I am definately going to have to build one of these! I have to get my L-39 done first though... I've got the "jet" bug again...

I do think with the newer, lighter power systems available, we are going to start seeing some more realy cool depron jets, both pusher and EDF, that perform the way we want our jets to perform and are designed from the outset to take advantage of the power. I for one am excited at the possibilities.

Great video Doc...I knew you were going to beat Steve at getting a video out! No offense Steve.

She looks increadibly stable but ready to get crazy when you want too. And those loops (more like flips) are just awesome. Can't wait to see her all dressed up and ready for the next dance! I see you've been watching Discreetfire's bling thread...the 37 would be a great candidate for a little bling job itself.

Now Steve, it's time for some video from you showing your awesome low and slow aerobatics show. You really know how to put your designs through all kinds of maneuvers in a really small area.

Steve,

As always.. very well done! I am very happy you went all the way and designed this bird to the enth degree of what people would want out of it. I remember talking about this bird with you nearly a year ago.. nice to see it in all its glory finally

Dosc, great vid.. glad you caught the fire before to much damage was done.

Just wondering if it was just my imagination, or does the full TV bird not do rolls very well. Might be just that in this video he was underpowered.. but wanted to hear from others who have this bird flying. Seemed to more cork screw, than roll..

Platinum - You are correct--this model does not roll nearly as quickly as my other park jets. That's because it uses tailerons, which simply aren't as effective as ailerons. Tailerons also make it more difficult to do a pure axial roll since it's harder to separate the pitch and roll inputs, thus most rolls tend to corkscrew a bit. However, you certainly could install ailerons (or flaperons) into this model if you want to. I just chose not to because the tailerons are simpler and provide a good enough (and reasonably scale) roll rate.

Dallas - I'll definitely post a flight video soon, but first I need to paint my model. Should be done in a couple weeks.

Tim - Great to hear from you! Thanks for the kudos. I too am giddy with excitement over what the current state of the art in electric power systems can do!
