GLASS and HARLEQUIN indoor planes
well didnt get any video yesterday flying , wish i did! Flew the glass great, i have a few people interested in this plane and im in the process of looking around for lasercutters and printers to hopefully put this plane into production and get some kits available.
its taken hits, walls, floors, trashcan, peoplehehee with almost no damage. Minor depron crack at trailing edge of wing in fuselage(cant decide if it happened when takin out of car or when i nosed into ground). Zero nose damage.
Oh, since this build i've added a template for "fuse stiffener"(angled lengthwise foam stiffener)on the underside of the build,should take care of the weakspot thats explained above.
Flies so nice, very floaty feeling at low speeds, very agile and percise at higher speeds.
Theres no undesired flight characteristics that i feel.
Rolls smooth and fluint, theres no snap at any angle in the roll and the line of attack stays consistent throughout.
Inverted flight is the same as normal flight, very easy and stable, and knifeedging,just the same , stable and controlable.
NO wingrock, none that ive felt or seen with friend flyin it or in video.
And it looks cool
3, 5gram servos
10 amp esc
28g motor around 360g thrust constant with APC9x3.8 prop
500mah 2 cell 20c, 350mah 3 cell both weighin' at 33g
corona 4 channel rx
Theres lots of things to lighten it up.
Lighter motor, battery to a 350mah, a couple lighter servos for the tail controls, milling the foam, less glue!, lighter electronics all around actually , my RX weights at 6g. But, its floats at this weight of 7oz's very nicely.
One thing i didnt do was weigh the foam after cutting and before paint. Will be doing that this next build of it soon.
NEW! Glass indoor January
ABOVE UPDATED FROM PAGE 4....
In the beginning..........
well, started designing something as small as a can get it without being to small and edgy.Still working on scaling and testing , soon to be plans
first was a 13 inWS single wing that flew into my friends pluma and turning into confetti.
2nd is this bipe at 16inWS and its gettin close to being what im looking for.
Thus far , it feels stable but a bit overproped (need props).heres some pics of the build thus far.

Have you ever tried using RC Car antenna tube for your cross bracing instead of the little ply squares? Just cut to the thickness of foam your using, drill hole through foam, install thread "bushing" & hit with C/A. Easier than the ply IMHO.

Geez I wasted time downloading a poor imitation of a Helicopter hovering??
Silly Me.. I thought it was going to be a demonstration of the models' flying capabilities.
A stick with a motor on the end would be just as exciting.
Surely the thing can do more?

it about getting it stable and small, from the flying ive tested the smaller it gets the more unstable it becomes.this wasnt about my flyin skills, its about the plane being stable and solid for a small wingspan.., didnt have anyone to film so cameras on a tripod hence flying in a 15 x 15 foot area. yees, the plane does more..............jeese.LOL

Was there really a need to be so rude? Hovering does take some skill and general know how to set up and do. *-.- (some people)
Anyway, I personally think the model is wonderful Super work *two thumbs up*
