which plane for combat?


hey guys im looking for a good plane to build out of fff for full contact combat, i tried a pizza box and it was very good, but want something like that but with a pusher motor on it. i might build alot of them so everybody has the same plane, so it should be cheap and easy to make

thanks

I was searching for the exact same thing, and ended up building one my cousin came up with.

I ended up with a triangle shaped delta with a mid-mount pusher motor.

Using a EMAX 2822 with 2S 1000mAh, a GWS EP8060, and two 9g servos, I can get 8 - 10 minutes of spirited flying. AUW is ~10 ounces.

It's very tough as well. I've run it into buildings, and a couple of light poles without any real damage. Only a little combat so far, but holds up well.

If you're interested, I can post pictures and dimensions.

This flys great and has been a lot of fun.
At a dollar per airframe you can have some nice cheap combat.
