first build log on rcg, 747 edf

ok well out of plain bordom after nothing to do. I had a great idea to try and make a 747(BTW this isint my first scratch built just my second scale built ) i recently built a C-119. after 4 hours of designing and sanding i whipped a 747 up, going to do some tests whith the prototype first with pusher motors then EDF units. its constructed of 6 mm depron, 1 inch blucor foam,and 2 inch foam already test glided, its really tail heavy but glided good. More pics tomorrow

Oh, ok. I like the C-119 too. I really suck at scratch building lol. I tried to make a simple flying wing but ended up saying screw it and just took a poster board and put a verticle stab and elevons and flew that LMAO. Flew pretty good
