Big plane!


Big plane for a little motor! Which battery, ESC, motor, prop are you using? I couldn't tell if it had ailerons. 3-channel rudder and elevator control only?

OK, dumb question of the night--I humbly plead utter ignorance--from your newest newbie to this forum, and with a budding interest in RC... I Googled "corrugated plastic RC airplane" and this forum is where I landed. What, exactly, is S.P.A.D., if someone would be so kind? And, please, be kind...

Thanks, B'buster--that makes sense. I saw a couple of guys several years ago flying an rc that was made from a lightweight aluminum beam fuselage that had a corrugated plastic (Coroplast?) wing and control surfaces. The idea intrigued me, when I considered how simple it appeared , against the amount of work involved in building and the subsequent grief in crashing balsa models. It appears that the state of the art in rc has evolved some since I was watching guys fly balsa and film Ugly Stiks a couple of decades ago. So now we can make these things from PVC gutter pipe and election candidate signs--amazing...
