Acorn RET, Nutballish Delta

Here is my latest design the Acorn!

It has roots in the Nutball, Delta Nutball and Simple Delta. I designed this as a windy day flier and have flown it in winds up to 12 mph with gusts to about 18. I can get it to hover for short periods of time (I need more practice). It rolls well and will do tight inside and outside loops. It's a blast to fly.

The fuse is the same I use on my Nutballs. It has the down and right thrust angles built into the design. I've included it in my plans, see below.

I buillt it out of spare parts I had laying around, so it could be built much lighter, which might improve my ability to hover. It's a fun plane, so I've included pics and plans for everyone to enjoy.

Length: 22"
Area: 352 sq. Inches
Motor: 1700kv Blue Wonder (any Blue Wonder will work)
