I have no problem answering your questions! The Grob and the Jodel are both from plans drawn by a friend! His name is Hilmar and he also sells the plans! You can get them from the publisher
There you can also get the material for the planes!
Art.-Nr. 6211140 (for the Jodel+material) Art.-Nr.: 3201383 (for the Grob) and Art.-Nr.: 6211206 (for the canopy and material for the build)
The other method is to build a depron splitting device which is also described by Hilmar and the German magazin FMT!
Sorry, all in German!

See you at the field

Flying Disc

Built this a month ago when the weather started getting colder here in Chicago. It is 3MM depron foam with Ember parts. The first version didn't really fly beacause I made it with elevons on the back and no rudder control. So I re-engineered and made it just elvetor and rudder. Also CG is critical to success. Control is now good and is actually quite stable. Seems a little underpowered. Weight is about 1 ounce. Is there a better prop I could use? It is a blast to fly anyway.

Just few little questions for your advise. First, where can I purchase the material that you use for building the fuselage. Second, how did you get the fuselage become 3D dimensional? Are there any techniques for building great planes like yours? (mine is always "squireish" looking)

Hope you don't mind to answer my questions

Thanks =D

I build micro stuf with durobatics 0.25 and 0.5 (for bigger stuff over 30cm Ws) Just do a search on google. there are about 4-5 online-shops that got it.

To make the 3d look´n feel.
I ursualy make the cad on the computer and unfold/unwrap the model to get the pattern, then i print it on the depron with my printer andjust cut the parts,glue,bend and fold (observe the "just" word) Its biach to get it right, but you will get rewarded in the end. PM me for more info.

wow that plane is cool!
im trying to get my hands on a guillows kit and put my 6400 gear in.....

Dumas kits have much better wood than Guillows.
See their web site for the selection.

The last Guillows kit I built, I had to replace most of the wood.
I compared the weight to some good balsa I had and it was 3X the weight.

Light planes fly better!

ill have a look at the dumbass kit then LOL
just for the record,i know how its pronounced

Love the sport, not the plane
Very funny. Have you guys ever thought of instead of using balsa or ply as a frame, you could use 3-5mm depron? I have seen it done, and that thickness is very strong. Saves a lot of weight.

Balsa flies best.

Nice PT-19. What's the wingspan?

making me spend my money too! Gotta build a canard now, too cool! Could you describe the power setup?

3mm depron = ~ 1mm balsa in weight...
Balsa is more rigid, but takes more time/love.
I use depron on the parts where i can aford the "flexynes".

Here's micro #2 Its a reduced in size "6th Ver. 4" w/ some carbon for bracing instead of foam... Its a bit bigger due to staples not listening to what i wanted, so it ended up being 20" wingspan instead of 16 1/2". Still waiting on the brushless setup i ordered to show up and another spektrum linear servo. Weight as it is right now is 36grams. Paint,glue and carbon rod bracing added 3 grams (paint was only 1 gram). I'm expecting all up flying weight to be around 80grams w/ a 140g of pull w/ the brushless setup i chose.

It is a Dumas Walnut scale, 17-1/2" wingspan.
AUW is 55 grams. Flies nicely on the AP05.
