Since i like to shoot some video's of my models from time to time, but i don't want to constantly create new forum threads or post different video's of the same models in mostly the same forum threads, i thought it would be a nice idea to start a new blog thingy just for the various personal random rc hobby video's...

To kick start this thread a video i created almost a year ago, showing two of my favorite grab and go planes...
One is a modified version of a delta wing called Impressivo, the other one a scratch build plane with a Jetbrett wing and tailsection inspired by a Sig Wonder called Villain:
Impressivo & Villain (2 min 53 sec)

(video best watched in full screen and HD )

A few months ago i got that uneasy feeling you sometimes get, that feeling it's time to create something...
Something to fly with, something that has a wing, yes a new plane, but than there is this small problem, what plane???
I have searched the entire i-net, looking for a plane that i like, that i want to build. A plane that looks different. A plane that stands out from the rest...
Somehow i dont like the looks of a cessna, or your standard piper, or anything that closely resembles either one of them, there are just too many of those out there, so that was no option.
Also I wanted something that has a span of about 1.2 meters, simply because it won't be very practical fitting a big plane in my car...
The new plane didn't have to have flaps, spoilers, retracts, lights, guns, thermonuclear bombs or anything like that, just a simple plane that looks nice and flies great...
Eventually i came up with, well nothing really... A few possibilities, a few maybe's, some too big, others too small. Came across some interesting planes, but could not find any plans, or usable plans... So what to do...
Two planes that i did come across on a regular basis where the SIG Wonder; fairly simple design, different, nice flying, but that fuselage is just too boxy. The other was a Jetbrett EDF; Clean, sleek, nice looking wing and also a very nice flying plane, but i just don't like the EDF...

For those who are unfamiliar with either one of them...
