.... this thing is stuck on my head rite now. I would like to pursue it and see how crazy it would look when it's built. My brain is overflowing with ideas but I would like to build it as simple as I can so we can save some foam for the next generation scratchbuilders...lol

...my scapel is whispering bad things to me, and it's pointing at my depron box.

Mayday, you are killin me man. I don't even have #1 done yet. I really like the upper wing idea. A biplane batman would fly.

Hey Mayday,

I think that could be a good flyer. You are putting a bit more wing area into this one plus the fences. That should enable it to do tight turns and loops without tip stalling.

I was going to try adding some more Depron to the front of my mini FJ as well as fences to see if I could make it fly better. But I had another crash and wound up just chucking it.

You are probably already adding the electronics

Waiting for the video here

B) Mike from HaddadRC made a plane from his scraps. Anyone know if he's got tiled plans for this?

I found a cool Delta the other day I didn't know existed. The "Lavi" an Israeli technical demonstrator. Got a good look about it. But may not be adventurous for you. I was thinking of making one similar to our Rafales.

Brother Trent, where have you been? Nice work on the swing wing F-14. The "LAVI" is indeed an awesome performer. it looks like a RAFALE and will probably perform the same.

Thanks bbjsw, I hope to finish this TDII soon I hope it will be more stable with the DROOPS.

I wish I am installing the electros right now so I can maiden her tomorow. I am hoping for more stable TD for novice flyers... we'll see what happens.

::
thos upper wings things will increase drag .. but if you lower thier AA , thwy will be like fronterons , and lower the stall speed. if you keep em same aa as main wing only add surface area and drag .. and no lift if too close to main wing .
but look cool doing either ..

dpoble dog dare you to hook em to some 3g-5g servos as active fronterons .

trasitong form insane slow alpha , to high speed level flight .
the side risers will act like wing fence .
shoudl be a very stable ( latteraly ) .. possbly enout to skip the main verts ?
that would be hot.

Albert,
Definitely looks cool! I'll be waiting on the sidelines for this one though. I recently built a "Bat Plane" and I have too many winter projects on my plate.

It will be interesting to see what you come up with...and I'm always switching gears so you never know! I gotta say, the Typhoon is one of my most stable planes at WOT. No regrets on that build!

Bill
