Trimming the thrust line was always the secret of a good flying plane ... just do what you have to do to get it neutral ... check for warps , just in case ...

Thought I would post my newest bullesye adaptation plan. It is more round than my last one. It is a tailed Squirt I called a squirt fish but never finished. I lost the dihedral and cut the 1/3 squirt shaped hole. 17" WS will have either 16g hxt 1700 or a turnigy 2204 with 5g servos

These fly so well with only RET and without messing with dihedral or setting elevons. Both simple things to do, but why if you don't have to.

This was back when dekan introduced the round one and several of us were playing with designs. I moved on to a nutball and never finished it. While the hole may give up some things as all designs are compromises, it does make a completely flat plate fly very well. This will be an experiement as the plane was made. Next will be a round bullseye. The delta with the " relief valve"gives up some upfront area to "push" against in loops so loops don't seem quite as tight as I could do in a smart dart etc..

The Basic Bullseye was well tested... Although my wings were spaced apart by the fuselage stick (plans) , most of the guys just glued the stick Flat to the wing... Worked Fine ...

Isn't it funny how some great simple designs aren't favored by the masses. I will of course do a real "round" bullseye when I have run out of already made planes (and maybe your xp-39) I think they should make the near perfect trainer plane as well. Can't believe this only has now 215 posts since December of 2002. Some people are really missing out. I wonder though since I already have the templates for the NB and a marked rod for circle cutting, my round one may look like a nutball not tipped up. I seem to like the elevator inside the LE of the circle. Seems like Gene was the first one to do that on the SQ2 thread.

I believe the lack of popularity was due to me mentioning that my FBs called it a Flying Toilet Seat... Must have scared away the multitudes, who might have mistakenly thought it flew the same way... Their Loss!!! FUN for us !!!

back from the depths ... Thought this one deserved a shameless bump ... Although this one was flown with IPS motors , the new gear should really increase the performance ... Thinking BW motor and small lipos ... I used elevons, FBs used RET ... both worked fine ... Dirt simple to build ... according to the plans ...

You know I am a fan of the bullseye idea if not the plane itself. I have used successfully on 4 shapes in addition the old round standby. Super simple RET. I need to get my plane out from post 207 which was my favorite this time last year.
