Speed 400 with Symetrical Wing


After flying the new geared Speed 280 Akro Champion from Hobby Lobby, I was totally impressed with the inverted flight performance of a symetrical wing design. The ship tracks as well upside down as it does in normal flight.

Are there any 4-channel Speed 400 designs that have a symetrical wing?

You could probably hack in a rudder on the E-plane. It has a symmetrical mid-wing design and runs nicely with a sp400 or p480 motor. I think somebody tried putting a rudder on it or at least thought about it - do a search.

Check out my fun fly 400. It has a symmetrical wing and flies like a glow powered fun fly model. Plans are available, but no kit.

Here is something interesting I just got in an email.... Not sure if it is FULLY symetrical, but I believe I have heard good things about the Extra 300 design...

Sorry for not responding sooner, I have been away from my computer.
I sent you mail in regards to your trouble.
Please tell me what I need to make clearer on the plans. I didn't build the prototype from the same plans and I may have left something out or it may be unclear in a few areas.

Just downloaded a demo of MacDraft. Now I can open the file! Yippee!

Trouble is I canít save or print it. Arrgghh.

Realy frustrating, I can see it, I like it, I want it, but Icanít have it.

Any ideas?


p.s. forgot, I was using PowerCadd before.
