New Product

Fancy Foam Anubis - Devin McGrath


That is right the Anubis is finally being released to the public !

The Anubis has been designed to excel at the most difficult indoor sequences, anything from basic F3P up through ETOC sequences and beyond this model will not disappoint. Delivering true logical inputs throughout its entire flight envelop making it easier for you to stop fighting the bad habits of your airplane and just focus on perfecting maneuvers. RJ and I Have spent a lot of time on perfecting this model. Along the way we have won many F3P contests with it and the Anubis has been in the top three of the ETOC every year since.


The AUW of this model depending on lightening and equipment will be between 85-110 grams.

The equipment in the production one I built pictured below is just under 100g using a Hacker A10-15s, castle 10 amp, 2 cell 120mah, R6004 receiver, Futaba 3154 on the ailerons and Diamond D47 servos on the tail. This weight was achieved with minimal effort and sub 5 hour build.


build photos and helpful tips to come shortly also some videos of the more tedious tasks i always get questions on.



hope you guys enjoy this model as much as RJ and I have.

build pictures and overview.

Note: this model was built form a white milled kit and painted myself. the production scheme is the exact opposite color placement (red and blue are switched) and also "Futaba" is not printed on the wing that is replaced with "Anubis"

I've flown Devin's prototype airplanes quite a few times. By far the best flying F3P/Pattern foamy I've ever flown. Period. Always in a sense of awe when flying it.

Devin/RJ, great work on another fantastic design, can't wait to build one for myself!

I have to agree with Seth I have not flown an F3P plane that tracks and locks in as good as this one.

Is Fancy Foam going to offer a VTVPP upgrade kit for the Anubis in the future?
Thanks

We will not have this option available for the Anubis because it is designed for F3P flying but perhaps we can put one together for the new MX3.

Thanks for all your tips and tricks.. Just wondering what prop you're using with the A10-15s? Thinking about grabbing myself one and I wasn't too sure what would be a good prop for F3p. Fyi, that's an awesome blinged out prop you have there.

The prop on the model in the first picture looks like one of the South African F3P props, just about impossible to get them

Whata great post. I learned more about building foamies the right way in this last 30 mins than in the entire time I have been doing this. You guys are so smart. The Pull Pull Solution is just genius. I have struggled and struggled to get it right.

Boy that fishing line is spendy, but you can do a lot of planes. Also tge offset control horns, and align ball joints, wonderful info. I am going to go back and redo all my planes.

Any more tips on lighting the AUW like the use of the Mag wire for the servo wires to the RX is invaluable for newbs like me. I just bought some of the Lemon RX 6CH rx's with no pins. I plan to remove the stock antennas and install lighter wire and sand down the bread board some. Also use your mag wire solution. I see you use Futaba, so your RX must be custom lighted ones right?


Again thanks for this post, I am excited about my new TVVVP MX3 build that is happening right now. Lastly do you have some video of your fianl flying sequences with the Anbis

I have another question if you dont mind. I see most of the guys run the Castle 10 esc http://www.castlecreations.com/products/phoenix-10.html. Its been discontinued, but the Talon 15 http://www.castlecreations.com/products/talon.html weighs less. Is this no good for what we are tying to do here.

Goodie,
Pat is correct this is a custom prop out of South Africa. More readily available carbon props such as the Glavak and Falcon props are out there. The falcons are a bit heavy. But when it comes down to it as crazy as it sounds the GPS 8x4.3 is surprisingly not bad.

Pat yes it is impossible to get one I have two and currently one is on loan to Donatas.
