Joe,

Nice work mate, a lot of talk about this one over on FB over the last few weeks so I am keen to see how yours turns out.
I am almost tempted to have a go at this myself. We have some hand wash containers at work that would make for a perfect cowl!

Are there any 3 views available? there is no contact info on their site

Rich the contact page isn't working at the moment, I have tried to get permission to publish my flying videos but no word yet
With a bit of luck I hope to be at one of the full size test days
Will send you what I have in the way of drawings

This is a very interesting project.....I have built it several times in my head...and it can be done...although roll and elevator would be the easiest way. A three view would be handy.
good luck Joe.

Rich...FB ?

Hi Joe wondered if you heard of this nifty little gadget a man at the flying field told me about it after he had seen us trying to video one of our models http://shop.soloshot.com it's not too expensive for what it is, anyhow thought it would be something you would like to see.

I think that Rich may need one of these toys hanging from his quad so he can film his own models in action?

Anybody got a 3 view for this thing? Or at least a top down view? I PM'd Jockadopolus but haven't heard from him.

Sorry missed your pm
I dont have any drawings for the Bulldog but it is based on the Waco http://www.wacoaircraft.com/
I used a foam kit to build my one http://www.tjdmodels.com/dynam-waco-...ne-p-5023.html
