Ouch


That picture is exactly why I dread maiden flights with my unscarred, unflown planes. No guts no glory. Bill, you had the guts, the nose job says so. Made a adjustment or two, now you have the glory. Do you have access to a radar gun? A 3 cell 830 is next on my wish list. congratulations on a plane well done.

This design has proven itself!


The name of this plane implies it all. INSULATOR...

This is a well thought out design that should be considered by all as to its crashworthiness. Note the well thought out and placed crumple zones which are a major contributing factor to protecting our investment in expensive Radio Control equipment. Its survival needs to be assured for our continuance in the hobby. INSULATOR
Note also the ease of repair offered by the materials selected and the simple building techniques needed. INSULATOR
Lastly, Note that the aesthetic value is not only in simple form but very pleasing and attractive! INSULATOR

Now! Everyone needs one of these planes! Remember the name... INSULATOR

Here we go again...yet another plane that I don't have the skill to fly or the time to build, yet I feel an uncontrollable urge to build it

I would be willing to host the plans for this on my site, to make them available for download. I have quite a bit of free space available.

I can't follow plans


I'm kinda thinking of putting the "fuse" on the bottom side of the wing to give me something to hold onto and protect the prop also.

getting around


Looks like this little plane is starting to get around. Glad to see that, I'm in the process of winding a new motor to squeeze a few more mph's out.

Bill- are you going to make a fresh Insulator or are you going to wear out this one first?

Jiggiba- You can put a small skid under the wing like Bill and I did, it'll serve both purposes your looking for. I think this method reduces the complexity of the construction. Just my two cents.

Cheers, Robb

Well, I got the single sheet down to a reasonable size...

Still fighting with the tiled one. I'll see if I can't whip it into submission (file size) this evening...
