Maneuverable - Ha - Who cares so long as it flies!



Actually don't listen to me that is a bad idea ....

Probably RET would be easiest on that...

<edit> just saw your tag ... do you differentiate between silly and stupid??

Yes, I do. I used that phrase in a rebellious moment dealing with another thread. Now changed.

Looking at the one built by Flite Test at a cost of $126.00, I think I will stick to the CnE.

For my CnE I used all pre-loved parts and if I ignore the cost of those it cost me about $20 and a few hours (probably about 10 hours but there was a lot of sitting in the garage navel gazing while glue dried and such - a few cakes and lots of coffee ... you know how it goes...)

I missed the previous question about motor pods, they're likely downloaded from thingiverse and 3d printed.

hey rich, I'm contemplating making an EPP c-n-e for night bowling, maybe raise the motor and put rails or wheels underneath so it can ROG

Any tips for how best to reinforce an EPP version?

For night bowling i would keep it simple. I do think it would be a good plane for it.

That is way too cool for sure!! I have never heard of or seen this before. Makes me want to put some lights on my C&E and do some night flying. Thanks for posting the video.

It was very popular with the group associated with TheCrashCast podcast and has made appearances at several events since that video, Most recently at The NEAT Fair last fall.

I loved the CrashCast. They were just ramping up as I was starting RC... I learned so much from them. I bought one of Crash's quad frames, and asked him to sign it, which he did!

What a great guy, I felt blessed knowing him!
