Help me design my new WW Thruster


Anybody have any good ideas for a covering design for a WW Thruster? Stembridge is building me one with a brushless Mega motor in it and I have no good ideas for the design. Please help out this lost soul with a lack of imagination!

Thanks,

Jay

Rob & Jay - My vote is for the flame treatment!! What do you think of this colour scheme Jay? Flames & trim can be done in ultracote so you can iron out the wrinkles when you need to. Looks good in the air and is easy to see and is good for orientation... Just a thought!

The flames are classic, so I'm not suprised Jay has that scheme already! Your last posted one, alumimum and white/blue trim looks great Rob!

I really like Tenover's orange design too, trippy and cool looking! Makes me think of coffee for some reason?!?!

Hey Jono, yeah I have red flames over white with an all black bottom. Im starting to lean towards the lightning bolts since this will be an e-thruster. But Id like a more exciting design. I really dig Ten's design, really cool and original, kinda makes me think of a hooka lol. A bud here just got his in a design Id thought of before, done up like a Texas flag with a big Lone Star. Cant wait to see it. So Jono tell us what its like to fly that monster! Should have enough motor!

Whatever I get I know Ill love it, I sure love the Raider!!!

That plane is my buddy Pete's. It flies, how shall I say it... BALLISTICALLY !!

With the brushless setup, you have about 6-8 minutes of endless climbs and terminal velocity manouvers, 500 ft loops and 100's of rolls. To say it is just fast is really an understatement... Just guesstimating that the flat and level flying speed at full throttle is probably in the 60's. The Thruster turns as well if not better than the Raider and is even better than the Raider inverted (a different foil I think). Fiddle with the CG to get the sweet spot (although Rob's build was very close indeed) and increase the aileron throws and have a ball!!!

Did you get Rob's new 5 spar version of the Thruster? I know you will enjoy the Thruster whatever, with Rob's top quality build and its truely excellent handling.

See our really bad video from the 1st day of flying. Pete had trouble keeping the E-Thruster in the frame...

How about angular camo pattern on top with blue, gray, silver, olive drab, with yellow flames on the leading edge. Black bottom with big military insignia on each wing? Think Urban Stealth Bomber!

Am I whack or what?
