Doing A Goolie - Flight Line Plans

Well, we gave you the SmartDart, we gave you the RoundOne, and now?

…we give you the Goolie – EPP differential powered delta.

Suggest you watch the two video’s found here:

www.micronradiocontrol.co.uk

Enjoy,

Paul.

I love the backflip bouncing off the trampoline!

Are they contra-rotating props?

I wonder if anyone will add vectored thrust...

They are contra-rotating props...no torque and no nasty tendancies.

Although not true vectored thrust, the proximity of the propellers to the control surfaces has a similar effect.

As an example: by holding in some down elevator and applying full power it is possible to hold the Goolie horizontal, nose against the wall (kind of flying, but without going anywhere!).

Use of the propeller airflow really makes the controls very effective even in a 'stalled' condition.

Hi Dekan,

Thanks for the good words.

...No plan available this time, we have been following customer requests for easy to build kits.

We have more on the way!

Paul, Never or not at the moment?

Its just that, for some of us, moneys a bit tight at the moment... I could buy some motors and Esc's for the kit price, all though I am sure, knowing you, it will be good value for money.

Good luck with new projects. I still fly one of your XS Dart and a 140% Round One... Super plans ...

Never say never, but not at the moment.

Times are hard but we do give good value for money - The kit has all foam parts accurately pre-cut, colour step-by-step instructions and even top quality control horns/clevis’s are included.

We take pride in our presentation and quality, which all adds to your enjoyment.

Paul.
