My new AP plane design! The "SeeBee"

"The SeeBee amphibious AP plane" by Lafayette.
Build for the Gopro.

PART #7 POSTED JAN 8 2011click this link!

At this stage, part 6, The aircraft will carry the weight of a DLSR or small camcoder. The fuse and float were tested in water with 40 ounces of weight, no problem. My goal was to carry 2 cameras to shoot video and still pics at one time.

Build log posted here:

Info On building the Hot Wire Router, as well as the gravity hot wire cutting table.
You can build both of them in 3 to 4 hours.

Construction pics and videos posted and updated as work progresses.

Modified the elevator to full stab, 2 engine pods for different payloads, one is a 2409-18 the other is a C3542-1100.
Flaperons almost full wingspan.
Having a wing so much wider than scale put the CG way back.
It will balance well with the 2409 and gopro in the case, with 2200 3S in the nose. With the 3542-1100 and the go pro, 2 2200 3s in the nose. Only one when using a heavier dlsr or video camcoder.
The last thing is to add the removeable landing gear, and mid wing floats.
The wing to tail has a short ARM and hopefully it will not be to squirly!
Maiden coming soon.
Ice storm last night!
Build pics and video will be posted soon, as well as a maiden with gopro on board, and TR 800 helmet cam!!! Should be interesting!!!
