Thanks, if you want a copy of them drop me your e-mail and I'll send em off to you.

No on the new motor, he's a good vendor and I've bought several things from him. Just wish we still lived in South Louisiana still so the wait would be shorter.

Not that I have noticed. However, this did occur to me and I make sure that my Rx antenna is well exposed from any angle. I have built 3 FFFF models so far, test flown 2 of them with GWS R4P Rx's with no problems.

.....the other is drag... either will turn your plane into dog.....
This is exactly why I made an elevon version of the BE. But I will try an R/E version too.

We are now experimenting with sliced FF and smaller Radio stuff to try to build a lighter 4oz.Bullseye for indoor flying ....
You have my full attention. Will let you know how mine does.

you gotta lose that foil business
Why? It adds a little weight, but makes the model look awesome.

or send me some to test OK!!!
That I understand, especially once you see how my models look cool with a metallic finish.[/QUOTE]


Happy Hoildays to all

E-Fan ...

I gotta' admit...if it doesn't weigh too much or cause radio interference...it's gotta' be good stuff.....at least really cool looking and might make a great scale foamie ...think of the cool weathering techniques showing exposed metal....and panel lines!!!! you gotta' send us some pictures ....thanks

PS. either version (under 7 oz.) flies great ........R&E just for non mixing radios(actually EXTREMELY stable and turns great on rudder.....)

Hey GPW

Could you please post a couple of detail pictures of the underside of your bullseye. I still can't decide on how I want to mount the servos, pushrods and radio gear and don't want to interfere with the aerodynamics of the shape.

Thanks

hahahahahahha!!!! don't worry, be happy..... the servos are just stuck on ,with servo tape ,to the top of the rear wing.....the rx is taped to the fuselage stick with scotch tape ...as well as the esc ....that's all there is!!!! it's the simplest aircraft that I've ever seen ....why go mucking UP the idea with aerodynamics???the plane is so simple it doesn't know any better...so it flys great ,even with all that "parasitic" drag....Happy New Year!!!
PS.will try to get you some pics as soon as batteries charge on digicam...

OK OK OK

OK OK OK

That was pretty much my plan...I'm putting some GWS microservos on this thing and wanted to make sure they didn't block airflow over the back of the plane. Keep it simple right?

I wasn't sure, on your early pictures I didn't see servos and thought maybe they were mounted on the bottom or through the wing.
