I'm not a big fan of super clear canopies. I like just a trace of tint so you can see the canopy. Sometimes you'll see a plane with a canopy so clear ,at a distance you cant even see it. That's why I do this.

Years ago I picked up this single burner hot plate at a Yard sale. I use it to keep the water temp high so the dye can do it's deed. You must heat the water!

Hello and Welcome,
I had a full scale Condor 2 ultralight back in 1983. I always wanted to build a model of it, but the technology just wasn't there. Now it is.
But to keep things simple I thought I would use slow stick wings and make it look more like a Kolb.
I'm designing on the fly on the first one and if it flies decent enough I will post up some plans later on. This will be my 2nd plane with an animated pilot. Some of you may have seen my TiggerBat from 2011. Video is posted on down the thread.

On this build I'm going to try and hammer through it to meet a deadline. So the first plane may have some compromises , but bare with me.

Hello and welcome... (EDIT: I would to suggest you read through as much of the thread as you can because some new ideas have come to light and there might even be and updated set of plans further in the thread)

This is a blog for these Foamie Flying Wings that we have been having so much fun with. It's not really anything new. It's just how we do it.

Everyone that see's them fly wants one and this is just to help guide them along through the process of getting one flying. It will save me time in the long run from not having to explain it to so many people.

Dis-Claimer and Credits.
KFC - Chris DeGraaff started bringing wings to SEFF to sell (see HoJazz Videos)
Matt Kloss Dissected his wore out DeGraaff wing, made some changes and built a bunch of them to use for paintball shooting at SEFF 2011. I had volunteered to help out with the event.
I got permission from Chris DeGraaff and Matt to present this build on RCGroups.

I want to keep the blog on point. Feel free to comment, but dont get your itty bitty feelings hurt if I delete a post or 2 to keep things on track.

I know guys will ask for tiled plans. It's not something I'm familiar with at all.
If someone else wants to step up and make that happen... then they can send it to me and I will post it here as well.


Here is a Grayson Hobbies set of links for the electronics if you are interested;

I love the Hobby King Turnigy Park 450 1200 KV with a 10 x 4.7 prop.
Matched with the Hobby king Plush 30 Amp ESC

This Motor combo^

These servos^ its more than you need but you can build a second plane or have spares
2 of these^
4 of these ^
2 of these^
You will also need a charger.

Here is a place to get colored box tape to decorate with. They dont add much weight but they add a lot of strength and look great.
