The disk is 36" diameter if you build it 1 to 1. I will work on remembering tiling it.

The stiffer you can make the wing the better it will roll.
My first model you could see the ailerons deflect , but see the wing bend the opposite direction. Speed makes it worse.
So I started adding CF to stiffen the wing up and it has gotten better.
If you watch the first video You can see the 66" Nitro model rolls fast (even tho they show it in slow motion)

The mission profile for the Foamie GeoBat is not to compete with an Extra 300 but more like the Piper cub of the flying saucer world.

I have taught people to fly on a Nitro Nexstar / then they built a GeoBat and discovered it would have been easier to learn on.

I can do the most beautiful rolls with a Foamie GeoBat. But they are slow rolls and I am feeding in the appropriate rudder and elevator inputs on the way around. Try it..... You'll like it. (get some altitude)

Marko, I have somehow ended up with a build guide that I got from somewhere that I didnt know I had. I just read it over and it is pretty good. Did you send it to me? I think it is very much worth posting. It has good tips and tricks for reinforcing, build order, etc...

It doesnt have any credits, names or copyright..? I am not sure where I got it.

I sent that to you. Its very old info.... I think I told the story better in the build log on the first page with all the pictures.

I shot this video of Hojazz's Night Fly GeoBat a couple of weeks ago. The lights are awesome!
