Tony65x55's "Funky Flier"

I found the plans in one of the old threads, sent them to Kinko's for a full size print.

I used GreenGuard, HotGlue, Straping Tape, and a 3/8 spruce dowel. I added ailerons to it since I hate Rudder only.

Here is where I am now. With the easy change motor mount.

You are a ball of fire [complement].

So now for me and everybody................

1 What ws did you use? 36 in std?
2 What is weight AS IT IS PHOTOGRAPHED NOW.
3 What is that hinge material?
4 Did you settle on a motor/battery combo?

Oh, did I say it looks NICE, too...... to myself, WHAT DO I DO wth my time? I wanna DO IT.

Thanks for posting.
