Scatch built coroplast profile


Just finished my scatch built coroplastic profile.

Power system mega 15/16/3
irate 2600 li-ploy
11-7 prop
two hitec 55's
AUW is 29 ounces

Fly's fantastic, better than I had hoped. Since it is coroplastic it is very durable and was cheap to build

Planter, you can just make one from hdpe and stiff wire with a couple wheel collars, just find a good pic of one and copy it with hdpe. I havent bought a commercial mount in at least thee years or more-then again I havent bought wheels or much else aside from coro for that matter :P

We get into ruts when we get to be old f*rts, RCH. It amazes me to see how much ingenuity is used with these things.

My SPAD


I haven't been flying long, since January infact. I've built balsa, but have recently build a SPAD Extra from the SPAD home Page. It didn't take long to build and I modified it somewhat from the plan as we cannot obtain the 2 1/2 inch gutter pipe in Australia. It came out at 5.8 lb and is powered by a Force 46 2 stroke. Flies famously with no bad habits and does whatever you want it to do.

Y'know they may be pretty ugly when freshly built, but certainly look better than bal$a after a crash (or 2).

Spad Zagi Clone-spaggi


My first wing was a dazi, but I built it out of 4mm coroplast and it was heavy.It flew, but would only mush around in the air. I had to add a fuselage tube to get the battery out in front of the nose in order to get the CG right. It looked like a lawn dart! My next wing shown below is a spaggi, built with 2mm coroplast. I had to add some weight to the nose, but was able to keep it inside the wing this time. It is still a little on the heavy side for a 400 speed motor, but it performs a lot better.
