GForcestress- those aren't weird

This is weird - Canard SS

All fly great, the twin stick is faster in glide due to the increased weight but will hover (torque rolling) on a fresh pack and 12 x 6 props

It's a sickness, huh?

Now, the Canard is screaming for a tractor on the front, to help out the pusher on the back...

genebond - thought about it, but that's where my wireless video cam is. Thought about using my twin setup on the wing though.

Next project - stand way off scale Langley Tandem with twin engines pusher mounted on the front wing

But, if you slap another set of wings on the bottom to make it symetrical, flatten out the dihedral, and add ailerons on the Canard, wouldn't you 'need the speed' of a push-me, pull-me?

I'm sure this is on the list somewhere....

Can't beat a $35 plane to screw around with.

Most of these ideas came from the Litestick mods people have done. Almost all flew well. With the Slow Stick all of mine have flown GREAT. All fly like the Slow Stick, just look weirder.

After doing the Tandem mockup, I'm now really getting the bug to try it, and I've only flown the twin twice and the bipe once. I'm scrounging radio equip out of all my other park flyers so I can fly these.

Slow Stick Squadron:
Stock SS
Canard SS
Bipe SS
Twin SS

All with interchangable wings so I can try even Weirder stuff
