You might remember that last year I made a plane called the "Cuda wanna Bee". It turned out great and flew fantastic! Laine Stahr (Lmopar69) designed it and is producing it as a kit in two different wing sizes.
Well he has designed another plane or should I say a twin... The "Para-Cuda". It is basically the "Cuda" times two. The same wing with an extension in the middle, two fuselages and yes two motors. Once again I had extra foam and decided I needed one... Sooo... The "Cuda Paranoia" emerges from my build bench. It has the same dimensions as my "Cuda wanna Bee" but it is now a conjoined twin. I built the wing in the FT style, it is essentially a "Versa" wing built backwards. The fuselage is double sided for strength and cut to fit and slid over the wing top and bottom. The wing has a aluminum arrow as a spar and some paint stirring sticks tying the three wing panel together. I hope to have ready for the CIFI (Crash in Fly in) in Saranac Mi. for the 4th of July weekend. Looking at dual Turnigy 3648-1450 motors turning 7x5 APC props. Should be interesting!

It's started...
Well I decided to build one... I spent several hours out in my shed freezing but I did manage to get most of it cut out and glued up. Going to have to get a bit warmer here to finish it as the temps are dropping again and the wind is picking up... Desperately waiting for Summer!!!
