Hello again,

If you like strange looking planes, you will like this one too I hope.
Is a modell that I built some time ago, and I was amazed on how good it can fly.

I started from this :
http://www.modelbouw-hans.nl/modellen%20nieuw.htm
http://www.modelbouw-hans.nl/Mijn%20...nt/Descent.htm

I doubled the size and ended up with this plan (corel draw format):
descent

It was a nice plane, after two months of fun, I broked the propeller at take-off and had a nice crash...

I never rebuilt it, but for sure I will one day. It was a mean peace of foam on the sky. Top speed I reached with this (put my XDA with GPS in the plane for a run) was 160Km/h, diving at 45degree with full engine. That is something for a foamie

Photon's PARK BIPE Mods

(His thread was in Foamies (Kit) so I brought it back here.)

I was thinking maybe KFm2 on the top wing and KFm1 on the bottom.

I'll be starting this build soon!

Steve
I just finished my modified version of the Park Bipe (designed by Photon with plans on the link above). Also used 6mm Depron and low temp hot glue for the entire build. My modifications include:

1) KFm2 on top wing.
2) Added ailerons to the top wing.
3) KFm1 on bottom wing.
4) Bottom wing is a duplicate of the top wing with rounded front corners.
5) Rounded front corners to the horizontal stabilizer.
6) Added an inch and rounded the top of the vertical stabilizer.
7) Raised the back section of the fuse and added a 1 liter Sprite bottle cutout as a canopy.
8) Used a "shock absorbing" LG originally designed by Dalton (DaDesign's Elipso Aero) using rubber bands on wooden dowels.
9) Single aileron servo mounted underneath the bottom wing.
10) The "Yippee" decal was designed by bullseye000 for Lee's (Yarsmythejr) Funder & Lightning.

I will maiden her tomorrow or next weekend...weather permitting.

Thanks Photon (if you're still around RCG)! Your design lives on!!!

Steve

Here is the first flight (Here you can hear the sound of it too. It had an AXI 2820/8 engine with a Jeti Advanced 70A controller) :
Descent - First flight (5 min 22 sec)

I can convert the corel draw plans to dxf or pdf if you are interested in the doubled size Descent from Hans. Just let me know if you need it.

Wow, that looks impressive. Definitely better than the prototype
Great looking mods too. I hope you took into account that the modified bottom wing may require some modification of the CG (start slightly ahead, just in case)

Good luck with the maiden.

Here's mine that I fly a few times a week. I saw something similar which
I started with and then tweaked it to hell. This is the current plane I ended up with.

I just built another. If anyone is interested in the plans I made them in excel and would be happy to share. This thing turns on a dime, very fun.
