Nice job, you kept away from the "monster mushroom" this time although you say it was windy I didnīt notice that at all. That GoPro fish eye thing I donīt like, the horizon is always a huge curve, but I think you can turn that off right? Nice flight and a happy ending.

Well i put some fins on the end of the wings not sure what effect this will have on the plane but i was not to crazy about having the open ends on the wing..
Oh also upgraded the motor to a 15BL 950KV with a 9.5x7.5 prop

Anyone have any idea on if it will effect anything on such a slow flying plane???

I've been flying my noob for a while, and also my twin tail fighter, so I've been looking to try something else. Here is what I came up with, still a work in progress, I have to hook up the electronics and the differential throttle setup, but I'm having fun!

That is really nice, very clear and professional looking. Inspiring also.

To Build? or Build Another?

WInglessbob thats a pretty cool design and just inspired my next build. Its gonna be a bronco meets bobcat style plane with a pusher prop, similar to yours but with an under wing-ish type of design, using Ed's techniques, of course

I'd love to see a maiden. How are you hooking up the differential throttle?

After a few months of inactivity, I've finally gotten around to building my first biplane, it is now ready for its maiden...hopefully it flies!

Wow you guys have some serious finishing skills. All mine turn out looking like actual experiments. Yours could go on a store shelf.

Hey that looks really cool, Iīve been thinking about something similar myself but I like your design. Can you post a little info? what motors/propellors etc thanks.

Looks good, have always loved the look of the OV-10. Any change you could give an idea on basic measurements, such as length to tail from wing, tail height.

+1
Very clean design, would love to know more details or a short build log.
Robust enough to throw some FPV gear on it you think? I see no reason why not!

woo hoo!


The 60"ws version was boring to fly, but the new 40" wings and 300w motor make this a blast to fly! It is exactly what I was hoping for. Handles really well, rolls quick, great vertical and has a nice glide ratio too.

I think this is gonna be my 'all-rounder' that I can fly in any location or conditions!
