Description: . I had a few things i wants it to be able to do as a combat wing , Vertical Take Off , Durable, protected prop , components hidden . I have 3 Emax cf2822 motors 8X4 prop and 20 amps esc's so i sized it to hopefully fit them at 36" . Battery will be 850-1000mah 3s . This is the first template and i'm making some changes as i go and will post sketchup plans when i finalize everything . Elevon control with a KFM4 wing , cog noted on pic . Winglets added to help possible grab streamers Name: IMG_4926.jpg

I usually fly alone near or beside my house but a few time a year a couple friends are in town and we usually fly when they are . I wanted something that we could combat and beat up that was a little larger then most the combat planes ive seen and with the 8x4 prop i hope a little slower . Name: IMG_4922.jpg

Thanx Guys . Hopefully i can get time to hook up the elevons and get in a maiden . Its looking a little cold for the next few days though around -20 c so it may stay indoors for a while

Congratulations Wilfor!

Looks to be a really smooth flyer. That cold winter air drains lipos fairly quick as well. I am interested in how well it handles high G manuevers. Some models like to stall through a tight loop and twist out of it.

Looking forward to your plans.

Ken i was about to try some high G stuff but when i went full throttle the motor stopped . I was able to cut throttle and get it to re start but it quit again shortly after , I didnt think it felt that strong on take off and had way more lift when playing with the throttle in the basement . lol might get out today for a quick flight if i can

Didnt get out flying on Sunday when my Wife was available to film . Was busy outside all day with the kids . I did try to strap my camera to my radio and get footage but missed most of it . Way more power with a charged battery

Tuff-E-Nuff Flight 2 (0 min 57 sec)


Sort of corkscrewed while looping until i added a little right stick . Found out once back on the ground that i was getting more up on the left side then right as my tape hinge is a little tight . I'll get that fixed up and try and get some actual footage . Plans are almost done and i cutout a 29" version that i want to try a BW and a 7" prop on .

Hey thank you for the interest, I would love to see another 1 in the air. I have a thread for it here https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1818870

There's plans there but I'm not positive which version.
