Another Twin Boom pusher AP plane

Hi all,

I wasn't sure whether to post pictures of my latest model here or in the foamies section, so here's a link:

I *REALLY* like the open framework "fuselage" underneath the wing. Protects the equipment but leaves a lot of options for mounting.

I've thought about a twin-boom but this design might just be what I need to get one started!

Nicely done!

Bob,

A very cleaver design - simplicity and function.

Thanks guys.

I tried to think of a minimal structure that would hold the camera, power system, wing and tail all moving in close formation For a fast builder (which I am not), this model would go together really quickly.

I posted a maiden flight report on the other thread. It was too windy to trim it out, but it flys very well.

Troy: you should know that your twin boom design is part of the inspiration for this one, so thank you.

No problem Bob, Your design made me wonder how light I could build it using carbon fiber tubes.
