Hi,Albert Vanderlyn
Battery: 7.4v 860 mah
Motor: 400s 1500kv
Propeller: 1160
Total weight:460g

I am flying with a half throttle. If the airplane can be lighter, it should be better controlled. Because it is in the flight control zone, it cannot fly too high.

Yes , ucdesign2010 just created a PDF file that includes tiled plans for the 40" size :

He also created an RAR file ( that I'm not familiar with ) :

If you want to build a larger size with the PDF file , you can enlarge the plans on page one .... and then use the "poster" , "cut marks" , and "labels" settings on your printer to print out tiles for the enlarged plans .

Hi AI,
The rar file is the compressed file generated by the compression program, because the system does not accept CAD files, so I wrap it up.
Decompress the CAD file in the decompressed file with WinRAR software.

Want to build a different size with the CAD file,
can use the CAD file scale to any size you want in the cad software,
and then changing the size of the groove or projection used to join the part,
which is the thickness of the material you are using for example 5mm,6mm,3mm.... "

What would be the outer limit weight wise for a motor for the 60" version B/C? I have a couple of these old classics in my parts bin. They will swing 12 or 13" props very nicely. I have the 2015-4100's

That 62 gram motor should be fine on a 60" OF , as long as it has enough thrust .

The motor I have on my 60" OF is this 78 gram motor : https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hextroni...___store=en_us

Very nice! Great job sir! I hope to build this 40" version soon. I'll probably try DTFB peeled...no tape. I picked up a bottle of Fabri-Tac at WalMart this morning. I can't get Foam-Tac locally but heard that Fabri-Tac works as well and is cheaper. I test glued two pieces of the peeled DTFB together this morning and so far it seems fine. Good bond and no damage to the foam. We will see how it goes.
