Dear slopeacrobatic maniacs.
I'm building a VTPR model named KONA . I just like to share this information.
The Kona is fully designed in a 3CAD package and cnc cutted.

The wings, stab and fin are foamcore abachi and balsa sheated .
For more detailed information I have setup a new website, with some information and pictures.
It is a personal website in , though still a lot of work on it ;-(
Time to time I try to update with new pictures and comment.
Also if you have questions or tips, that's why I started this topic do not hasitate to contact me .

Span : 1800mm
Lenght : 1170mm
Wingsections : SB96V-SB96VS
Stab./fin sections : NACA 0007
Weight : . . .
Fusalage : balsa/ply

Thanks for your time
Benny

Nice looking model Benny, but I would have thought a small former with balsa or spruce noseblock would have made the nose build easier and stronger (though of course you can't then get noseweight as far forward I suppose).

Yes Matty, I know, but I had designed the possibility mounting a brushless motor also. All parts are foresseen allready, I just need a extended axes and a ballbearing, with a hub that can be removed, so you can make your choice quickly if you are on the slope or on the field. Mine to start is a slopeversion only and also prototype.
