Build Log


This is for all the guys on know who you are !

I've decided to try to build a 3D-ish I stole the stuff I liked from 4-5 ARF's and came up with this....takes (2) sheets of 3/16" Elmers board and a 2 liter bottle for the canopy.....I'll revise and annotate once I build her, but you guys get the idea......As always, drawings are on 36x48 paper.. foam board blanks are 40x30.

I did a box fuse because I don't like batteries, ESC's, and Receivers flopping around in the wind !

This ain't Dollar Tree foam !
