Well, I finally built an EasyStar biplane which actually flies. My previous attempt didn't work, but this one does.

Getting the CG right, as well as reducing the cross-sectional area of the supports which connect the second wing to the first wing... these changes made all the difference.

And doing this for my ROG (roll off ground) EZ* makes it even more fun.

GingerAdam & MarkJayne, Thanks for the inspiration to build and fly an EZ* bipe!

And thanks also to my friend, MechRick, for teaching me RC flying, providing biplane engineering advice, and photography.

Clear Skies,
