Lazy Bee Plans !!!!

Hey all ...

Just had a few questions about the Lazy Bee.

First of all, how does this thing fly. Has anyone ever flown one and can they tell me more about it?

Also, If I plan on building one of these can I find the plans somewhere or do I have to buy the whole kit?

And what size engine, servos, and fuel tank etc. will it take?

Thanks for any help.

Well, obviously, they fly ! See this video:

Read the comments below the video, they tell you a lot more than I can about the plane. You might want to contact the poster of the video to get more info.

Good luck ! Jim

Do I have to buy one of these kits or can I find plans somewhere and make it out of my own supplies?

All Clancy Aviation products have been discontinued.

Your only chance is to do a search on RCGroups or RCUniverse, and contact people who have built a Lzy Bee and contact them about the plans.

It doesn't really look like too hard of a project to just scratch-build one from pictures, though.

I already posted WTB down below. It would be nice to find a kit or at least plans. I might make up a few small foam ones just to get back into building.

I just contacted a guy on YouTube.

Said he has built these things and is willing to help others build them.

I'll let you guys know if I get anymore information.

ALRIGHT!!!!

He emailed me and gave me the plans to not only the Lazy Bee but the Speedy Bee, Yard Bee, and Lady Bug too.

I will begin building this.

I'm going to start a build log and show you guys some of the pictures of when I start to build.

I will put a size .15 to .25 engine on it. Still not sure which size. I'm debating on which to use.

I'll let you guys know when I start work on this plane.

Is this the same guy that had the video I pointed out? Is there any possibility that you can publish the plans here so we can download them ?

"Inquiring minds want to know! ! ! "

Cheers, Jim

Jim,

This is not the same guy who posted the video but he does know what he is talking about.

I will definately post the plans right now. I've just been a little busy lately and haven't gotten around to it. There are a few different ones. There are plans for:

-The Lazy Bee Fuselage (All one sheet and tiled)

-The Lazy Bee Standard 40" Wings (All one sheet and tiled)

-The Lazy Bee Decals (All one sheet and tiled)

-The Lazy Bee Extended 48" Wings

-Speedy Bee Comlete Plans (All in one PDF document)

-Gyro Bee Complete Plans

-Intsructions for the Lady Bug

-Tiled Plans for the Lady Bug

-Yard Bee Fuselage

-Yard Bee Wing


As you can see there are many of them. I will post them ALL for you guys. If anyone builds one of these from these plans, please PM me as I am anxious to see what you guys will do with them.

Thanks for all of the help and here are the plans.

Man, that's fantastic! I will be anxious to see your progress, and have a look at the plans, myself. There is just so MUCH that one would like to accomplish, and so little TIME !

Good luck! Jim
