I don't know what's wrong, but no matter how I try to access it, I cannot pull up Flugmodell Und Technik. I always get a dead link. It almost seems I am restricted from pulling up a German site by my ISP. No idea why.

Does anyone have a set of plans already downloaded from Germany?
Not for the really big one. Just the normal size plane, if available.

Thanks...

Thank you! Got it and saved it on my computer.
What size sheets do these need to be printed out on? 11x17? Or larger?

Thank you too, Bob, for the response.
Kindest regards,
Tony

Here's the Sea Jet plan for your collection too…

(You know, I didn't check; could be the same plan but different with names.)

I keep wanting to cover over the Cockpit "hole" but then I think about ventilation
and , well ... I guess I'll have to just make a Profile Judi.
Profile? Won't this defeat the fatty toon fuselage appearance? You are crazy!

No no no !
I meant a profile of a Caricature to put IN the cockpit,

AKA a Sillouette of a head.

Also I'm about done with the mid sized Judi Sea jet.
Maybe maiden yet this week.
Stay tuned :-)

Again :-) A4 is more or less the Metric equivalent of Letter size paper.
So print on letter size and glue stick the sheets together.

When extending your wires from the Far Front located ESC way back to the Pusher motor,
Be sure to use large enough wire.

I used some HK silicone insulated wire which saved my plane and ESC.
WHY because silicone does not melt like the vinyl insulations on some wires.

This allowed the wires get hot enough to melt my foam but not
so much so that they shorted out.

I HAVE upscaled my extensions since the incident.

This all happened on the LARGE version !

See pix of rear inside cockpit areas.

Profile pilot in a toon fatty? (I'm sorry, I can't stop laughing). You're too cool. I could hang out with you easy. Have a couple of cold drinks and talk rc stuff all day.

A friend of mine built one of these and put a profile Wile E. Coyote in the pilot seat, and it's the cutest plane ever!

I told him I'm going to build one and put the Road Runner in mine, so we can chase each other across the sky!

Rusty, I'd stop by and bring beer but you're a little far off the path.

Builderdude : Get a pic if you can Please :-) ?

The Big Judi is definitely faster WITH the canopy.

I am getting closer to finishing the 32" version.
I have my grandson with my just now as he had a bad accident
last weekend. A freak bike mishap ended in a face plant and some broken teeth.
The poor kid is only 10. Fortunately his mom is a dentist.

SO things have slowed a bit

Cool. Cartoon characters in a cartoon fatty. I can go with that. Road Runner will always win.
Sexy Betty Boop or Roger Rabbit's wife is who I would do.

Crash tests done dirt cheap!

Sorry to hear about your grandson. Hopefully he will fully recover. As someone that rode (and crashed) many motorcycles in his youth, I sympathize. Young people have amazing healing abilities that are denied to us older folks. Some of us, thats me, are thankful for any healing, much less major healing.

Looking forward to seeing your build.

Take care,
Ed

Thanks Ed.

The situation is Looking up :-)
Today is the 1st day he has NOT needed ibuprofen.

I took him to school today to pickup his homework and all the kids were surprisingly supportive yet squeamish as he told them the story.

OK WHERE do I find Cartoon Caricatures for my cockpit deco ?

Well, I hand-painted Snoopy as the famous WWI pilot on the side of a Curtiss Jenny and it turned out nice. I just do it by hand. But I bet you could find something if you do an internet search.
If you can't find what you want, let me know and maybe I can help. I have some artistic abilities.

And yes, I would be happy to take pics.
My son suggested he put A.C.M.E. on Wile-E-Coyote's airplane. If he does, I'll put Beep-Beep on Road Runner's plane.
