Not much point (IMO) in reinventing the wheel??
Thanks for your input!

Anyone wanting to build a balsa BD-5, here is the link: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&highlight=bd5]

Will try not to reinvent the wheel next time

Balsa---or----Foam

Hummmmm I'll take the foam For the extra weight it's worth 1. not having to cover w/monocote 2. 10 min build time

You are compairing this to the one by Dblum... in case you haven't noticed this is foam. It may look similar, but it's not a copy.
My $.02 worth.

Thanks for the link. On the balsa build I noticed he used a mid mounted motor and drive shaft. That should make balancing much easier. Not as simple to build as the pusher.

Hey vleisie,

can we have a little more info??

did you reinforce the depron someway? I mean, if you intend to land and take-off from the belly, it won't las too long if you don't protect it.

what did you use for the colorfull lines, paint, oracover,etc??

Happy landings!

Hi Dani,

I used clear packing tape on all the leading edges, it protects and stiffens the surface. I would recommend this for the bottom of the plane also. It is very light.

The colours are vinyl, you can get it from a sign shop. It is very convenient, but a bit heavy, probably 20g or more on this plane.

The video is up on youtube:
Depron BD-5 (1 min 45 sec)


I'm still figuring out how to embed it here.

This was the fifth flight.
