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?

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.

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...
